Blizzard announced their latest World of Warcraft expansion, Cataclysm today at Blizzcon. Two new races, Goblins and Worgen will be joining the Horde and Alliance, respectively and both factions will receive new combinations of races and classes. They’ll also be raising the level cap to 85, adding flying mounts to all of Azeroth, and altering the terrain of the whole of Azeroth (some real bad stuff is going down). Interestingly, a new guild leveling system will be implemented (I’m not sure how that will work, but it sounds cool). Oh, and there will be a new secondary profession, Archaeology, enabling players to finally realize their in-game archaeological dreams.
Left 4 Dead’s first expansion pack, L4D Survival Pack, is due out this spring. The expansion features two new versus campaigns and a new game play mode, survival. Survival sounds like it could be really awesome, instead of having to run through millions of zombies you sit in a room and wait for them all to come to you. And try to not die. I like that.
