World of Warcraft(R): Cataclysm(TM) in Stores Starting December 7

IRVINE, Calif., Oct 04, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. today announced that World of Warcraft(R): Cataclysm(TM), the highly anticipated third expansion for the world’s most popular subscription-based massively multiplayer online role-playing game*, will be released starting on December 7, 2010. The expansion will be available on DVD-ROM for Windows(R) XP/Windows Vista(R)/Windows(R) 7 and Macintosh(R) at a suggested retail price of $39.99 and will also be offered as a digital download from the Blizzard Store. A special Collector’s Edition packed with bonus items will be available exclusively in retail stores for a suggested retail price of $79.99.

“Cataclysm includes the best content we’ve ever created for World of Warcraft. It’s not just an expansion, but a re-creation of much of the original Azeroth, complete with epic new high-level adventures for current players and a redesigned leveling experience for those just starting out,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “With the help of our beta testers, we’re putting on the final polish, and we look forward to welcoming gamers around the world to enjoy it in just a couple of months.”

The first two World of Warcraft expansions, The Burning Crusade(R) and Wrath of the Lich King(R), each shattered PC game sales records upon their release.* In Cataclysm, the face of Azeroth will be forever altered by the return of the corrupted Dragon Aspect Deathwing. Players will explore once-familiar areas of the world that have now been reshaped by the devastation and filled with new adventures. In an effort to survive the planet-shattering cataclysm, two new playable races — worgen and goblins — will join the struggle between the Alliance and the Horde. As players journey to the new level cap of 85, they’ll discover newly revealed locations, acquire new levels of power, and come face to face with Deathwing in a battle to determine the fate of the world.

The beta test for World of Warcraft: Cataclysm is currently underway.

Also, here’s something that worth a read for us, fellow Taiwan player, we have no doubt that Cataclysm will hit Taiwan server soon after the US & Europe counterpart.

BEIJING, Sep 20, 2010 (SinoCast Daily Business Beat via COMTEX) —

The Taiwan servers of World of Warcraft (WoW) began to provide the download of add-ons for Cataclysm, the third expansion pack of the game, on September 19, 2010, which is regarded as the signal for the pack to be launched in early November in Taiwan servers.

Earlier, media report said that within the two weeks after NetEase.com Inc. (Nasdaq: NTES | PowerRating) launched Wrath of the Lich King (WotLK) in Mainland China, at least 20% of the gamers shifted from Taiwan servers to mainland servers and the figure was likely to hit 40%.

However, the release of add-ons for Cataclysm will put NetEase.com in an embarrassed situation and the third pack will attract some gamers back to Taiwan servers, confidently believed the Taiwan operator of WoW.

On August 31, a top executive of NetEase.com did not reveal specific details when talking about the launch of Cataclysm in the Mainland. The company so far has not submitted applications for the publication of the third pack.
