With the upcoming release of one of the most anticipated online role playing game ever finally within sight, game developers Blizzard are taunting their audience with almost daily glimpses and news reports regarding their long-awaited Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game World Of Warcraft.

This time, the good-humoured programmers have released a collection of sixteen different sound bytes from the different Alliance and Horde characters in the game. The sometimes humourous, sometimes flirtatious quotes represent only a small sample of the multitude of voices available to players through the game's new Speech command. The voice samples are available either individually, or as a zip'ed archive from the developer's website.

Furthermore, in preparation for the game's China release in 2005, Blizzard has opened its official Chinese World Of Warcraft website. The website, scripted in simplified Chinese, allows fans of the game access to the game's most recent news, previews of the game's features, and invites visitors to take part in the website's official forums.

The regular English version of the game is currently available for pre-order over at the IMG Store at $49.95 USD, while a special Collector's Edition of the title is also available for hardcore online warriors. The Collector's Edition, containing the full version of World of Warcraft, will also come loaded with a multitude of extras including a 200 page Art Book, a behind the Scenes DVD, the game's official soundtrack on CD, a cloth World Map, and some undisclosed "Virtual Items". Pre-orders for the Collector's Edition are currently being taken in exchange for $79.95 US dollars. Click on the links below to pre-order your copy of the game:
