Blizzard announced today that the third expansion to World of Warcraft
, dubbed Cataclysm
, is set for launch on December 7th
. In addition to upping the level cap to 85 and including several new high level zones, the expansion will revamp the parts of Azeroth that have been around since WoW's
initial launch, bringing the 1-60 leveling experience more in line with the improvements Blizzard has made in the expansions. Cataclysm
will also give players two new races to play, Goblins and Worgen, who have joined the Horde and the Alliance, respectively.
