Blizzard Posts Frozen Throne Release Party Feature
8:25 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Blizzard has posted a feature detailing the release parties that took place on July 1st, the day the company shipped its expansion pack, The Frozen Throne, for Warcraft III. The release party took place two Fry's stores in California.

Here's a clip from the feature:

At both locations, customers started lining up early, and there was quite a line by 11:30 p.m. on Monday night. The lines were several persons wide and went all the way around the building! The parking lot at the Fountain Valley store was full and some people had to park down the street (it's a HUGE parking lot too). When the doors opened, customers started forming lines (filling up the aisles) to purchase Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. Blizzard had signings at the same locations last year for Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, and this time there were even more people! At 12:00 a.m. the registers were opened and people began buying games and accessories. The first 500 people (while supplies lasted) also received a free Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne T-shirt. After making their purchases, customers could then line up for autographs.
To check out the entire feature, please follow the link below. Wacraft III: The Frozen Throne is available through the IMG Store for $34.95.
