World of Warcraft: Cataclysm officially announced

IT’S OFFICIAL FOLKS!!!  World of Warcraft: Cataclysm was unveiled by no other than our beloved Chris Metzen (VP of Creative Design).  Deathwing is back, and the face of Azeroth has changed. Old villages are now destroyed, lava runs amok everywhere in Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms.  The Goblins (Horde)and Worgen (Alliance) are officially new playable races.  Gilneas Greymane Wall collapsed during the cataclysm.  The residents are now cursed with the worgen state.

We can now fly in Azeroth.

I will now start uploading our press kits full of screenshots and details.  Check back shortly.  Grim Batol is in development based on the story from WoW: Night of the Dragon.

Mount Hyjal present is a new dungeon or zone.  Hyjal is under siege by Ragnaros sending his elemental army to burn the World Tree.  Malfurion Stormrage is back from the Emerald Dream.

The Barrens Split is broken in half by the middle.  Naralex is trying to regrow life into the Barrens in early quests in Wailing Caverns, well he was successful, you can see Barrens with life, and forests. While other areas are lava-like.

Uldum is a new dungeon.  There will be a cat-like race inside.

New Blackrock Spire dungeon.

Twilight Highlands is the Twilight’s Hammer base of operations.  The Twilight Dragonflight has risen.

Tol Barad is introduced as a prison isle.

Three new PvP battlegrounds.  One is Tol Barad and another in Gilneas.  New Arena Maps.

Desolace looks full of vegetation in some areas.  The druids seem to be doing their work around some areas after our experience in low level quests.
