Reminder : World of Warcraft Cataclysm Launch Events

1 min read


Today will mark the biggest change to World of Warcraft’s landscape since the game originally launched. The game’s third expansion focuses on the transformation of Azeroth through the cataclysmic events resulting from evil dragon Deathwing the Destroyer’s return.

It’ll bring with it around 3500 new quests, two new races, more classes, stats and other things MMO nuts go crazy for.  More important though, is it marks the opportunity for your level 80’s to get 5 more dings. Hooray! Excited? You should be, and you should be excited enough to get down to one of the country’s many midnight launches.

The following BTGames stores will be open from 10pm tonight, giving you a chance to get the expansion as early as possible, and play it right through the night. Work be dammed!

  • Boardwalk
  • Brooklyn
  • CanalWalk
  • Cavendish
  • Centurion
  • Eastrand Mall
  • Eastgate
  • Fourways Mall
  • Garden Route
  • Greenstone

  • Menlyn
  • Mimosa Mall
  • Northgate
  • Pavillion

If you’re in the Edenvale (JHB) area, Exclus1ve books will also be holding a midnight launch at their Greenstone branch; and with two launches happening in the same mall, store-loyal BT and Exclus1ve fans can battle to death. Man, I hope they battle to the death…

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
