The pictures below will show you the revision of Chinese version’s World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King. Chinese version Wrath of the Lich King is finally going to be released in China, and the launch there has been delayed for almost two years.
One of the revisions in China's WoW client
Blizzard’s World of Warcraft entered China in 2005, and was operated by The9 in its first period. Its first expansion Burning Crusade came with a lot of revisions of the client, and got delayed. When the anticipated expansion Wrath of the Lich King was released all over the world, all the players could enjoy in their new adventures except those in China, because the competition on WoW had begun in China.
Finally, NetEase became the new operator of the game in China, but another problem showed up. Because of Chinese government’s policy, Wrath of the Lich King also got delayed, and this period lasts for almost two years. Blizzard constantly revised the models in the China’s WoW client to get the approval of Chinese government, and now NetEase finally can publish this “new” expansion for players in China.
NetEase finally got the Chinese government’s approval on Wotlk, and is going to release it soon. Unfortunately, like the revision in Burning Crusade, there are a lot of model changes in the upcoming expansion in Chinese version client.
Pictures are not all the revisions, and there are still more with the same way of revising. Now let’s take a look. (Left:original Right: version in Simplified Chinese client)
