Apple Games Features Wrath Of The Lich King
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

For its latest feature article Apple Games has ventured into the new realms of Wrath of the Lich King, the next expansion for the Blizzard's popular World of Warcraft. The article includes comments from production director J. Allen Brack, a history of the evil Prince Arthas, and a list of some of the new features available in the expansion.

Wrath of the Lich King also introduces the game’s first hero class, the Death Knight. Arthas was a human paladin before he became a Death Knight and later merged with the previous Lich King, Ner’zhul, and now you can experience the first part of that journey, as long as you have a character at 55th level or higher. Your newly-minted Death Knights can be members of any race.

While Death Knights begin their careers “doing Arthas’ bidding and doing terrible things,” says Brack, “eventually you throw off his yoke and become your own character.” At that point, you become aligned with either the Horde or the Alliance, depending on the race you originally selected.

Thus even the Death Knights’ exploits tie into the expansion pack’s theme: with great power comes great responsibility. “The Lich King is a guy who got power and became corrupt through it,” Brack says. “Players work toward defeating that.” He also points out that each of Northrend’s zones has a story with a beginning, middle, and end — “We did a better job of that this time around,” he says.
