WoW: Patch Sets Stage For Cataclysm, Battleground Preview
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment has released new details about the next major content patch for its popular MMO, World of Warcraft. The large update will pave the way for the release of the Cataclysm expansion. The company also recently released a new preview of Cataclysm's Gilneas Battleground.

WoW Patch:
The next major content patch is coming and sets the stage for Cataclysm with many great new changes, updates, and pure epic fun. We’ve packed it to the brim with so many new things that this patch proves to be the biggest one yet. In order to smooth the way, we have started background downloading the first segment of data for this patch. People who use the Launcher and have background downloading enabled will automatically start receiving the data. Other segments of data are forthcoming over the next few days.

To make sure you are pre-downloading data, make sure to run the launcher and see text that reads “Data for the next patch is available.” You should then see a message indicating when data will be downloaded. Click “Options”;, then “Downloader Preferences” to make changes to when you background download data.

Gilneas Battleground:
When King Greymane severed ties with the Alliance after the Second War, the kingdom of Gilneas became independent from all other nations and opposing forces. Although the massive Greymane Wall protected Gilneas from outside threats, a virulent worgen curse and civil war crippled the kingdom from within. As the Cataclysm strikes and the Greymane Wall's gates are destroyed, the people of Gilneas must come to terms with their dark curse and learn to persevere through catastrophic earthquakes and an unrelenting Forsaken invasion. The Horde recognizes this land as a strategic location with key resources to fuel the faction's war effort against the Alliance, and Horde forces will not stop their siege until the city and its surrounding territories are under their control. To protect its lands from the Horde, the once-isolated nation of Gilneas must now work with the Alliance.
