World of Warcraft Euro Release Date
8:02 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Blizzard's European division has announced their version of World of Warcraft will be ready for release one week from tomorrow, February 11. The company has been hard at work ensuring they have the infrastructure to support players across the Atlantic, and the game itself will be fully localized for English, French and German.
Here's more about their plans from the press release:
With the launch less then two weeks away, the European infrastructure is in the final stages of preparation. The second phase of the Final Beta has been launched, more than doubling the number of players in the game, making World of Warcraft bigger than the current and entire European MMORPG market. In addition, just prior to launch, the existing servers will be taken offline and wiped clean, which will erase all current accounts and characters. This will help us to ensure that the game launches in the best possible conditions and also means that all players will start afresh on an even footing.If you're one of the many awaiting its release in Europe, be sure to get your preorders in now, as there will be both standard and collectors editions available.
