Today Blizzard has announced the global release date for the second expansion to the ever popular World of Warcraft. You should be able to pick up Wrath of the Lich King at most major retailers on November 13th, 2008.

"We're looking forward to launching Wrath of the Lich King and finally giving World of Warcraft players a chance to take on Arthas and his minions," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. "Until then, we'll continue to refine and playtest the expansion content to make sure it provides a highly polished and entertaining experience."
