Cataclysm's 'Immersion And Lore'
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

World of Warcraft Insider has posted a new preview article based on a beta version of Blizzard's upcoming Cataclysm expansion for the popular World of Warcraft MMO. Topics covered include information about quests, artwork, cutscenes, and zone design.

Cataclysm will allow players to adventure as two new playable races, bring their characters to level 85, take on challenging quests and dungeons in all-new zones, and experience dramatic changes to familiar aspects of the game in the wake of a world-shattering disaster.

It's easy to lose sight of it in the continuous debate over talent balance and DPS passes and tanking difficulty and how healing will shake out, but it's impossible to ignore just how much work and craft have gone into the questing, cutscenes, art and zone design for this expansion. Cataclysm is as massive an expansion as The Burning Crusade and Wrath put together. Almost every original zone in Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms has been redesigned to some extent. Some have been so heavily redesigned they resemble the old zones only in name, while others are still familiar but have definitely been given a new slant. There's absolutely no way around the changes. If you've been playing for years or if you just started in Wrath, I expect you'll find something new to explore very quickly the next time you roll an alt.
The article includes some spoilers about the expansion. Check out the link below to learn more.
