The base World of Warcraft game package now includes second-most-recent expansion Cataclysm at no extra cost. Previously called the Battle Chest, the pack includes the original release plus early expansions The Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King as well as the world-changing Cataclysm, and has a North American RRP of $20 – not bad when you consider the MMORPG is free-to-play to level 20, although you’ll probably want to shell out for latest add-on Mists of Pandaria, too. All features from the first three expansions are now free to all subscribers at no extra cost. You’ll be able to pick up the new pack in stores soon, or you can grab it directly from Blizzard’s store immediately.

Blizzard has announced it’s cut the price of World of Warcraft expansions in Europe at both retail and through the Blizzard Store. Those who have yet to purchase expansions for the MMO, or who are just new to the fray, can now pick up Wrath of the Lich King for €19.99 and Cataclysm for €29.99. At present, there hasn’t been a price cut announcement for the US, as both expansions are listed on the store for $39.99; however, some retailers sell it for less than the suggested retail price, so it might be in your best interest to shop around.

Interview – WoW: Cataclysm’s Alex Afrasiabi on console MMOs, Hero Classes, Cryptic’s “mediocre” MMO comment, more
The funnest part of building a sandcastle? Knocking it down.
With World of Warcraft’s Cataclysm expansion, Blizzard appears to be taking that philosophy to a whole new level. After letting players frolic about in its multi-million dollar sandcastle for nearly six years, the developer’s decided to shatter Azeroth into tiny little pieces and then put it back together again. The result? Suddenly, old is new, up is down, and Stranglethorn Vale doesn’t royally suck anymore. Needless to say, it’s an exciting time to be a WoW player.
Perhaps even more exciting, however, is being a WoW developer. To see years-upon-years’ worth of blood, sweat, and tears finally manifest into a complete experience has to be immensely satisfying, and speaking with lead world designer Alex Afrasiabi during BlizzCon, that was more than evident. It was kind of amazing, if we’re being honest, to see a developer so fired up over his own game – a game that’s been around for more than half a decade, no less.
Click past the break to hear Afrasiabi’s thoughts on the future of WoW expansions, why Cataclysm doesn’t have its own Hero Class, why MMOs and consoles don’t mix, why Cryptic’s wrong to call MMO content “mediocre,” moving the MMO genre forward, and tons more.
