Irvine, CA – (April 12, 2010) – Cryptozoic Entertainment, home of the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game (TCG), is pleased to announce the worldwide release of the Wrathgate expansion on May 25, 2010. Wrathgate is the second of three sets in the Wrath of the Lich King block.
The 11th set in the World of Warcraft TCG, Wrathgate features 220 new cards straight from Northrend and the new Argent Crusade faction. Yes, players can recruit figures from Warcraft lore like Highlord Tirion Fordring for the battle against the Scourge. Also, players can use new Wrathgate crafting materials to forge brand new gear for their TCG heroes.
Each booster pack contains 19 game cards. As with previous sets, players have a chance to open one of three new Loot cards randomly inserted into Wrathgate booster packs. The codes on the Loot cards are redeemed for cosmetic upgrades to World of Warcraft® MMORPG characters. The loot cards in Wrathgate are Landro’s Gift, Statue Generator, and Blazing Hippogryph. The latter is another TCG exclusive mount—a flying hippogryph to set the skies on fire.
Additionally, hobby stores that order from an authorized Cryptozoic distributor can take part in the Buy-A-Box program. Players who purchase a Wrathgate booster box from participating hobby stores will receive an exclusive extended art Torch of Holy Fire just for supporting their local hobby store. Supplies are limited, so reserve yours today!
