Taste Undeath—and Other Flavors—at Blizzard Entertainment’s Ice Cream Citadel During Comic-Con®

Ice cream pop-up opens its doors during San Diego Comic-Con®
to celebrate upcoming Hearthstone
® expansion,
Knights of the Frozen Throne

No SDCC badge required

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#IceCreamCitadel–Amidst the sweltering San Diego heat, mortals and the undead
alike scream . . . for free ice cream. Blizzard Entertainment today
announced the grand opening of Ice Cream Citadel, a pop-up ice cream
shop that celebrates Knights of the Frozen Throne™, the upcoming
expansion to Hearthstone®, Blizzard’s smash-hit digital card
game. No San Diego Comic-Con® badge is required, so all are invited to
stop by for a free Frozen Cone as well as a photo op with the Lich King,
Lord of the Scourge and ultimate purveyor of death and icy treats.

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.
