Cataclysm: Gary Platner and Jesse McCree Interviews

The first unlockable content of the Darkmoon Faire’s Cataclysm campaign: “Your Fortune Awaits” is now available after the community reached 10% in both the Alliance and Horde side. Two interviews were unlocked.

The Jesse McCree interview talks about the development of the new playable races: the Goblins and the Worgen, and their respective starting zones. The video shows some of the buildings and landscapes of Gilneas and Azshara and the before and after scenarios where phase technology was used.

Gary Platner, Lead Environment Artist, mentions how he got into the gaming industry and his previous games before landing on Blizzard. There are only four environment Artists and their job is to create the world: lands, water, sky, textures, etc. He explains how the environment team got to expand the level of detail in long distance.
