Blizzard Announces Launch Date World of Warcraft Russian Language
Blizzard has announced the launch date for the Russian language build of its wildly popular World of Warcraft MMO. The fifth European language build of WoW will go online August 6, 2008.
“The launch of the Russian-language version reflects our continuing commitment to make World of Warcraft even more accessible for gamers throughout the world,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment®. “We also hope that providing a fully localised version of the game will further enhance the gameplay experience for our enthusiastic Russian community.”
Russian players will have the option to download and subscribe to a dedicated Russian account giving them access to Russian realms only. European WoW players will be able to download the Russian language pack or convert their existing account to a Russian account. Free character transfers to specific Russian realms will also be available for a limited period of time.
The Russian build of WoW will be available for Windows XP/Vista and Mac OS X 10.3.9 or higher. You can visit the Russian WoW site for more details.
