World of Warcraft still exhibits no signs of diminishing, not even the least bit amount of fatigue. Whether the large player base is the indirect result of unworthy competition in the MMORPG market or simply a testament demonstrating how solidly built the game is, Blizzard Entertainment is celebrating a new milestone; the subscriber base has surpassed 12 million players worldwide. For those seeking a job in the game industry, the press release goes on to mention that they will be hiring to compensate for the increase in activity.
The third World of Warcraft expansion pack, Cataclysm, is right around the corner and will be seen hitting store shelves on December 7th. New features in Cataclysm to name a few will consist of a couple new playable races, an increase on the level cap bringing it to 85, and some redesigned locations in the world as part of the progression in the backstory.
