China blocks Wrath of the Lich King release

Wednesday, 11th March 2009 18:40 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


The Chinese government has rejected two applications to launch Wrath of the Lich King in the country, as the WoW expansion’s content did not “meet requirements” thanks to a city raid and skeleton characters — the submitted version left out the Death Knight class.

Blizzard has now deleted the link to the Chinese version on WoW’s North American site.

China apparently has issues with skeletons – for some reason – and undead in the game have had to be “beefed” up in the past so they showed less bone.

More through the link.
