World of Warcraft: Cataclysm

World of Warcraft is getting set for a third expansion: Cataclysm. For the third expansion of the World of Warcraft series here is an excerpt from their site:

"Hidden away in his sanctuary within Deepholm, the corrupted Dragon Aspect Deathwing has waited, recovering from the wounds of his last battle against Azeroth and biding his time until he can reforge the world in molten fire. Soon, Deathwing the Destroyer will return to the surface, and his eruption from Deepholm will sunder the world, leaving a festering wound across the continents."

According to the press release they will be introducing two new races, Goblins for the Alliance and Worgen for the Horde. They will be opening up new, as yet unopened, parts of Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms for exploration and questing. This will also enable players to increase their level to 85. There will be challenging new dungeons and raids, players will have be able to increase their powers as well as experiencing the new changes that will change the face of Azeroth forever.

Players will now be able to fly in Azeroth, meaning they finally finished the maps. There will be a new secondary (Like fishing, cooking and first aid) profession: Archeology where you will be able to uncover artifacts and earn unique rewards.

Players will be able to take on PvP objectives and daily quests in on Tol Barad Island, a new Wintergrasp like zone, as well as fight in all new rated battlegrounds.

There will be new race and class combinations too, Bloodelf Warrior, Gnome Priest or one of the other never before available race and class combinations.
