Blizzard has provided World of Warcraft fans with an overview of what to expect in Wrath of the Lich King Classic, noting it will "thrill both veterans and newcomers" and mentioning a host of improved content and features.

Check out an overview of the WoW WotLK Classic features and content below:

  • The Grim Frozen North – Heroes will begin their journey in one of two zones in Northrend - Borean Tundra or Howling Fjord - and adventure through some of the most epic vistas and beloved storylines in all of Warcraft before breaching the seat of the Lich King’s power in Icecrown.
  • The Rise of Death Knights – Available to both factions and starting at level 55, Death Knights - World of Warcraft’s first hero class - harness the powers of darkness to help combat the evil that threatens Azeroth. While Death Knights are limited to one per server and require a level 55 character on that server to create, in Wrath Classic, we will be bypassing that requirement for a player’s first Death Knight.

  • New Profession - Inscription – This new profession allows players to scribe mystical glyphs that modify the properties of spells and abilities (cooldowns, damage, etc.), and craft powerful trinkets and off-hand items.
  • Achievements Unlocked – Achievements are coming to WoW Classic, giving players new rewards for their exploits and accomplishments.
  • Dungeons & Raids – Relive seminal 5-player dungeons like Azjol-Nerub and the Culling of Stratholme, and lay siege to Naxxramas as a 25- or 10-player raid -an update of its original iteration as a 40-player raid in pre-expansion World of Warcraft. 
  • Included With Existing World of Warcraft Subscriptions – As with previous WoW Classic releases, anyone who subscribes to World of Warcraft can also play Wrath of the Lich King Classic at no additional cost.

Remember that, like Burning Crusade Classic and WoW Classic, new dungeons and raids will unlock as time passes.
