Located in the PetCo parking lot just a short walk from the San Diego Convention Center, Ice Cream Citadel will provide visitors with free ice cream in two flavors: “Villain-illa” and “Scourgeberry Sorbet.” In partnership with Yelp, Blizzard has also created a Yelp business page for the pop-up, titled “The Lich King’s Ice Cream Citadel,” where users can rate, review, and post photos of their experience. Starting July 18, those brave enough to call the business (1-855-LIC-HKNG) will be greeted by the Lich King’s chilling voice.

Hearthstone is a free-to-play digital card game featuring quick and lively duels that evoke the spirit of a friendly match played beside a crackling tavern fire. Launching in August, the Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion will take players to the frozen lands of Northrend, where they’ll raid Icecrown Citadel, the Lich King’s frozen fortress, and challenge the Lord of the Scourge for his seat on the Frozen Throne.
