World of Warcraft “Cataclysm” is due to be released on December 7. For all of you gaming techno geeks out there, we have just received news of a new cinematic introduction video. This will include how the game will change with the awakening of the ancient evil dragon ”Deathwind the Destroyer.” As well as this, it will outline the game’s landscape and new features to look forward to.
World of Warcraft has just received a new testimony to its huge popularity, as Blizzard announced that the title has reached 12 million paying subscribers, just after it released the game’s second expansion, Wrath of the Lich King, in China.
Blizzard is just casually putting this out there, you know… if you’re interested. Not a big deal or anything. Anyway, on to the trailer. Rarely has Blizzard put out a more carefully crafted study in mediocrity, almost aggressive in its adequateness. The voice acting is appropriate, production values are about what you’d expect from the game industry’s premier cutscene makers and apparently they’ve gone for bland even in their movie references, for unless mine eyes deceive me there are more than a few homage shots to 2012 in there.
As well as these new features to look forward to, we reported recently on a new downloadable patch 4.0.1 which Blizzard are currently working on, giving changes to the game classes, talent trees and spells, a new glyph system and reforging system by WoW to change stats.
World of Warcraft Cataclysm is scheduled to be released on December 7, and will be available as a retail package, as well as in a Collector’s Edition filled with extra goodies. Needless to say a copy of World of Warcraft and a subscription is required to be able to play the new title, while the other two expansions, The Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King are also recommended.
