Z-Man Games Announces World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King - A Pandemic System Board Game

A new Pandemic board game is coming to your tabletops soon. This one's not a new location or era in world history. It's headed to the World of Warcraft. It's Wrath of the Lich King. Pre-orders are being taken now.

From the article:

Journey to Northrend, the cold and unforgiving northern continent of Azeroth, where heroes utilize familiar mechanics of the Pandemic series, but with fantastical tweaks, to truly bring a unique experience with World of Warcraft®: Wrath of the Lich King - A Pandemic System Board Game.

Forts, temples, battlegrounds, and more populate the extra-large game board as heroes journey across the cold landscape, working together as they make their way to iconic locations to deal with the rising threat of the Lich King’s ghouls. These minions attack players, hindering their progress toward ridding the world of their master. Too many ghouls spawning in a single area summons powerful and aggressive abominations, horrid undead beasts twisted by the Lich King’s power that will seek out the nearest hero and engage them.

Keeping the undead plague at bay will be a challenge for players. Heroes must engage the ghouls and abominations in combat by moving into the spaces they occupy and rolling the combat dice, attempting to roll enough damage to destroy them. These rolls can be combined with Hero Cards to give attacks a boost, and offer other useful strategies.
