Hordes greet Warcraft expansion

The second expansion pack for the fantasy role-playing online game the World of Warcraft has gone on sale.

More than 2,000 people waited outside an Oxford Street store in central London, in advance of a special midnight opening.

Similar launch events are being held in North America, Taiwan, and South Korea.

The Wrath of the Lich King includes a bonus continent for high-level players, a plethora of new enemies, extra equipment, spells, and new professions.

We've been looking forward to this launch event all year

The expansion also gives players the chance to take on a new type of character known as a Death Knight.

On the stroke of midnight, players - many of whom had queued for hours - got to pick up a copy of the game signed by the developers. (Culture, Industry, PC, Tech)
