World of Warcraft, often referred to as WoW, is a massively multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) set in the Warcraft universe. It is developed by Blizzard Entertainment and contains 2 (and soon 3) expansion packs, including World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade, World of Warcraft: Wrath of The Lich King, and soon World of Warcraft: Cataclysm.

In 2008, World of Warcraft received more than 11.5 million monthly subscribers, and currently holds the Guinness World Record for the most popular MMORPG and world's largest MMORPG online game. It also continues its further story development throughout its franchising, other than online media, such as Warcraft novels, manga, RPG books, TCG, and board games.
