 This is a really dumb joke. Sorry.
 This is a really dumb joke. Sorry.
Brad and Drew are down in Southern California to cover the Gathering of Blizzalos, or, as they actually call it, BlizzCon. The opening ceremony is underway and there have been a couple of announcements already. I'll let Brad fill in the details later, but for starters... 

  • The fourth announced player class for Diablo III is a Monk.
  • A third expansion called Cataclysm has been announced for World of Warcraft. As previous rumors indicated, there are two new races. The Horde will get Goblins while the Alliance gets Worgen. Worgen are, as I understand it, wolfmans. It'll jack the level cap up to 85, too.
 
We'll have interviews and other Blizzard-specific stuff happening in the relatively near future, so remain vigilant!

As dumb as it may be, I enjoyed the joke. And I look forward to the interviews.

Blizzard isn't shy with announcing so much new content every Blizzcon.

If only it were the TV Monk instead.  He could throw fits of OCD and use his super-sleuthing to save the day!

Hopefully they will be able to strettch this into content every year and a half instead of every year. it just wouldn't be a blizz game if they didn't. Content being shipped in the time period announced would be ridiculous.

Worgen? What the shit?

That's even more ridiculous than the Pandaren, but the Pandaren were awesome, and this is not.

I'm sad that after 5 years they are finally doing what I wanted to see happen for the first expansion.

I really really really really hate World of Warcraft, and think blizzard is the most over rated dev in the world.
 
I try to get over it, but every time I try, it seems like every site in the world has some news story about how someone at blizzard wiped their ass.
 
Hey giantbomb, where's the news stories about final fantasy xiv?! hm? not everyone likes World of warcraft!

Pretty interesting they're willing to actually change the original game world. That used to basically be an unwritten rule.

Cool I've been wanting Goblins since the stupid Blood Elfs. What's the chance that Blizzard gives any idea when Diablo 3 is coming out? Starcraft 2 out in: Terran-2010,Protoss-2011 and Zerg-2012? Would that meen no Diablo 3 untill 2013?

Jeff you forgot to add the trailer!
 
But yeah, was reading this on MMO-Champion and it sounded legit.  Only thing that I'm confused about is what about those players who DON'T buy the expansion?  Since Blizzard is re-modeling almost every zone in WoW vanilla, are those players getting new content for free?  Or they going to be instanced and separated from those who HAVE the expansion?

Wolfmans.  Why is it that the Alliance folks always seem to be a bit of a search to find something that fits?  I think it would be cooler if they had those Ice Beefalos.
 
So, WoW will have a cataclysm...  does that mean people will be taken over by The Beast?
 
I'm not sure I get the...  Ohhh.  Monk.

The alliance gets werewolves, and the Horde gets goblins. Yeah, that's fair.

Monk class looks awesome  :)
I think it's safe to say that the final class is going to be some form of Ranger.

They are going back and redoing all of the classic content it seems. I am surprised. No, I'm in shock actually. I didn't think the rumors were real.
