Wired: World of Warcraft is about to be shaken to its core. Again.
Cataclysm, the third expansion to the popular and long-running MMORPG, is a major moment in the evolution of Blizzard Entertainment's fantasy game.
As the name implies, Cataclysm throws Warcraft's world of Azeroth into upheaval, with the evil dragon Deathwing the Destroyer smashing his way up from an elemental plane and into the real world, as seen in the trailer above. Accompanying the creature are natural disasters that move mountains, flood valleys and change the way Wow's virtual world looks and plays.
