Starting last weekend, zombies began appearing in World of Warcraft, infecting all in their path with their hatred of the living and their love of tasty non-NPC flesh. Basically, anybody that came into contact with a zombie had to get a cure, or become a zombie themselves.
Hundreds of thousands were infected. It was meant to be a fun Halloween game plus a promotion for the upcoming expansion, Wrath of the Lich King. However, Blizzard had to put an end to the blight yesterday. Why, you ask? Because grumpy WoW players couldn’t have any fun, and were upset that the zombies were ruining their gameplay experience.
I guess not everyone shares my feelings that Zombies make everything better.
I actually find this whole thing hilarious. There was a rumor going around the Web last week that Rockstar was going to release GTA IV DLC that turned the game into kind of a zombie expansion, but that turned out to just be some multiplayer fun. Which, while cool, wasn’t as cool as all of Liberty City being filled with the Undead.
So what do you guys think about Blizzard’s WoW Zombie prank? Fair or foul? Sounds like WoW players were just being whiny to me.
