New ‘World of Warcraft’ Expansion ‘Cataclysm’ Site Launches

Blizzard Entertainment launched a site for Cataclysm, the third expansion for their World of Warcraft MMO game, which features a preview of things to come.

Two new races will make their debut in this expansion: the former slaves of jungle trolls on the Isle of Kezan, the Goblin race and Worgen, a race of feral wolf-beasts whose origins remain steeped in mystery.

The site has new screenshots and information about the new races in regards to the two main factions in the game, Alliance and Horde.

Excerpt about Cataclysm:

Hidden away in a secluded sanctuary, the corrupted Dragon Aspect Deathwing has waited, recovering from the wounds of his last battle against Azeroth and biding his time until he can reforge the world in molten fire.

Soon, Deathwing the Destroyer will return to Azeroth, and his eruption from Deepholm will sunder the world, leaving a festering wound across the continents. As the Horde and Alliance race to the epicenter of the cataclysm, the kingdoms of Azeroth will witness seismic shifts in power, the kindling of a war of the elements, and the emergence of unlikely heroes who will rise up to protect their scarred and broken world from utter devastation.


  1. So I wrote that in all of five minutes and realized I listed this as the fourth expansion, but it’s actually the third…and the fourth part of WoW.
