Next expansion set to add new land, says Blizzard

While Cataclysm is set to rewrite the shape of Azeroth, WoW's next expansion may just open up some new land.

It's not the first time Blizzard has openly mentioned a fourth expansion, but ears will still have pricked up.

"I think the next expansion will be something more like a new continent approach. More like the Burning Crusade or Nothrend, where we send players somewhere new that they haven't seen before," the company's systems designer, Greg Street, told CVG.

"I think the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor are good now, we won't have to mess with them. There might be some small areas that may require polish or changing if things still don't feel quite right."

Cataclysm's out today.
