China Blocking World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Over Skeletons, City Raid

Blizzard's World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, the second expansion for MMORPG World of Warcraft, is having problems getting approved for Chinese release.

The fastest selling computer game of all time, Wrath of the Lich King sold 2.4 million copies in its first day on sale. The demand and interest in China is high, but the government is blocking the game.

It has been rejected two times by Chinese officials as the game's content did not meet requirements. Questionable content includes a city raid as well as skeleton characters.

The game has undergone changes specific to these requirements in hoping of receiving approval.
