Blizzard has unveiled some details on an undead hero called the crypt lord, which will appear in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. The crypt lords are said to have been the ancient kings of the subterranean spider kingdom before it was conquered by the lich king, Ner'zhul. Much larger and stronger than Warcraft III's crypt fiend unit, the crypt lords are mighty warriors and the guardians of the undead's holdings in the frozen continent of Northrend. An animated portrait and some more details are available on Blizzard's Web site.
Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne is the recently announced expansion pack for Blizzard's popular real-time strategy game. For additional information, check out our previous coverage of the expansion.
