GameStop today announced that it will host a collection of “Lunar Game Fests” at approximately 3,500 GameStop stores, celebrating the midnight release of Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King on Thursday, November 13, 2008. Wrath of the Lich King is the second expansion to the massively multiplayer online role-playing game, World of Warcraft.

“In a year when we’ve seen a number of major new titles and expansions, we are particularly excited about this release,” said Bob McKenzie, Senior Vice President of Merchandising, GameStop. “World of Warcraft is a global phenomenon and partnering with Blizzard Entertainment for the worldwide release of this expansion lets us truly give power to the players, especially those of Azeroth.”

Starting at 10 p.m. local time on Wednesday, November 12, World of Warcraft faithful can visit one of the 3,500 GameStop stores to enjoy costume, art and trivia contests in anticipation of the 12:01 a.m. release.

In addition, GameStop will host Lunar Street Festivals at two of its marquee locations in San Francisco (Powell Street) and Austin (Austin Arboretum), starting at 8 p.m. Humans, Orcs, Blood Elves and Draenei alike will get a chance to showcase their dance moves in a dance contest, don their best Warcraft couture in the Lunar Fest Costume War and bid on themed swag at the “Azeroth Auction House.” Members of the World of Warcraft development team will also be available at both locations for autographs and a meet and greet with fans.
