Blizzard announces official Cataclysm launch events

Matthew Rossi

If you are planning to go out and purchase your copy of Cataclysm from a brick and mortar location like so many of us did for the past two expansions, Blizzard has official launch events to accompany you at retail locations across the globe. In both Southern California and Toronto, Canada, these will include official dance contests with prizes for the lucky winners. In addition, many retailers will be open late on Dec. 6 and into Dec. 7 at midnight to sell copies of the game to the throngs of people hungry for giant, insane, lava-breathing dragon aspects.

It's going to be a Cataclysm world we'll all be living in come launch day. Are you going to try and dance your way into Blizzard's heart?
