All of the datamined info we've been able to find on this Lich King Raid.

During the weekend, someone "leaked" an upcoming Lich King Raid event that would support multiple players at the same time. It wasn't really a leak per se, considering the latest patch had lots of information about the event. Today, Blizzard confirmed the debut of gameplay during its GamesCom schedule so we decided it'd be a good time to share all of the information we know.

The event primarily seems aimed at Fireside Gatherings as there are multiple references to contacting your Innkeeper.
