World of WarCraft: Cataclysm Alpha Test Officially Starts

Zarhym has confirmed the World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Friends and Family Alpha testing began today. Beta Testing has no ETA at the moment, but it’s clear it won’t be long before closed beta starts. Please, beware any type of email scam inviting you into alpha. Only friends and family are in it and under strict NDA. Don’t believe in beta invites at this point either until you see it in the official website and forums.

For now, knowing alpha testing started is exciting enough. Blizzplanet and other fansites will be covering Closed Beta whenever it starts, and make sure to stick around for possible beta key giveaways on the fansites at some point.

Blizzard Quote:

This phase of testing is under a confidentiality agreement. As we get further along in the testing process and open it up to the public, the NDA will be lifted.
