Blizzard continues with their localization efforts, this time bringing bringing WoW
Sometime soon (later this year) WoW
Italy will launch with a language pack for EU versions of the game, translated versions of the official WoW
website and forums, and new Italian realms.
We noted this might be a possibility back in 2009
when some positions opened up with specific Italian language requirements. The full Blizzard announcement as follows:
We have exciting news for our many Italian players: you will soon be able to play WoW in your native language!
Existing players will be able to download a free language pack to experience the game in Italian when it launches later this year.
Gamers in Europe will also be able to purchase fully localized versions of World of Warcraft (which now includes its first expansion, The Burning Crusade) and its three following expansions, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, and the upcoming Mists of Pandaria.
The games will be available for purchase at retail and digitally through your Battle.net account.
Of course, the official World of Warcraft website and forums will be offered in Italian, and we'll also be opening up Italian realms!
Stay tuned for more information on a release date in the coming months.
