Last week Blizzard Entertainment invited members of the press to visit their offices and get the latest details on what awaits players in the upcoming Cataclysm expansion for World of Warcraft. In the second of a two part look at the radically revamped Azeroth, we’ll give you an overview of some of the ways in which the world itself has changed, including the fully redesigned cities of Stormwind and Orgrimmar, and much more.

As Lead Content Designer Cory Stockton explained, rather than considering Cataclysm to be an expansion geared only towards the newly added 80 to 85 level range, Blizzard wanted to offer new and interesting content starting right from level one. To put things into perspective on just how massive of an undertaking the new expansion truly is, Wrath had somewhere around 1,000 quests whereas Cataclysm currently has close to 3,000 quests spread throughout all level ranges. That's an awful lot of new content to go out and discover for a single expansion.
