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.
