Z-Man and Asmodee’s popular Pandemic series is getting a World of Warcraft spin in the anticipated World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King — A Pandemic System Game, and it looks fantastic. So, what would make that even better? Well, getting to play it early of course, and now you can thanks to a new partnership with Target. World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Pandemic is now available at select Targets to purchase, but not just for pre-order. You can actually pick it up today if it’s in stock at your local location, which just made your Monday night game session a bit more epic. You can head here to get your copy directly from Blizzard now.
The Pandemic game system has been tweaked to take advantage of the rich War of Warcraft world and characters, and throughout the game, you’ll set up strongholds, complete quests, and battle the undead, and you’ll need to work together as a team in and out of combat to defeat the Lich King. That includes using the new Quest system, which is completely new to the Pandmeic series, to take out the monsters plaguing the world and destroy evil relics as you make your way to the throne.
“Wrath of the Lich King is our first time taking the Pandemic game system into beloved fictional settings like Azeroth. It literally opens up a whole new world of possibility,” says Justin Kemppainen, Director of Brand Management at Z-Man Games. “There’s no greater threat to Azeroth than the Scourge. The game really illustrates that by mixing the thrilling co-operative gameplay Pandemic fans know and love with World of Warcraft. We’re confident new and existing players of both franchises will love it!”
