Cataclysm Collector’s Edition Announced, Available for Pre-Order

And so it begins!

Kotaku reports that details on the Collector’s Edition for World of Warcraft: Cataclysm have surfaced, and like all of the collector’s editions before it, will have a boatload of goodies inside to sweeten the pot that you’ll be spending $79.99 to purchase.

In addition to the in-game pet you’ll get with the purchase of the Collector’s Edition, you’ll also get the customary artbook, behind-the-scenes DVD, and full CD soundtrack of the music of the game. Here’s the rundown from Blizzard:

· Art of the Cataclysm art book, featuring 176 pages of never-before-seen images from the archives of the Blizzard Entertainment cinematics department and the World of Warcraft development team, as well as progressive visuals from multiple stages of development.

· Exclusive in-game pet: he may not be a breaker of worlds just yet, but Lil’ Deathwing will still proudly accompany heroes on their struggle to save Azeroth from his much, much larger counterpart.

· Behind-the-scenes DVD with over an hour of developer interviews and commentaries, as well as a special Warcraft retrospective examining the rich gaming history of the Warcraft universe.

· Soundtrack featuring 10 epic new tracks from Cataclysm, including exclusive bonus tracks.

· Special-edition mouse pad depicting Deathwing menacing the ravaged continents of Azeroth.

· World of Warcraft Trading Card Game cards, including a 60-card starter deck from the Wrathgate series, two extended-art cards, and two Collector’s Edition-exclusive hero cards, marking the first appearance of goblin and worgen heroes in the TCG.

The one thing that Kotaku fails to mention is that the Collector’s Edition is already available to pre-order at Amazon! Don’t worry, if you’re not interested in the Collector’s Edition of the game, the Standard Edition of Cataclysm is available to pre-order as well!

One thing to note though is that Amazon is clear that you’re pre-ordering a product that hasn’t been released and doesn’t have a set release date – while we’re all sure that Blizzard is aiming at a 2010 release of Cataclysm, they’re not tipping their hand to exactly when that will be. Even so, get your pre-orders in now, especially if you want the Collector’s Edition.

    Already have it pre-ordered! :D Now it’s just a matter if I’ll get to play on release day (night?) or not…

    Same here Halistos! If Amazon does what they did with the Wrath and Burning Crusade releases, they’ll ship overnight or 2 day so you have it in ON launch day. Here’s hoping they do the same this time!

    im just wondering about the amazon shipping, if I order it from europe then is it shipped to me at launch day and it gets to me like idunno 3 4 days or its shipped that I could actually start playing in launch day.

    @estpro : If this is the same procedure as with WotLK, you will have to wait a bit longer, as Amazon US only can start shipping the day prior to launch. If you play a EU-version of the game i think it would also be best to order from one of the EU sites of Amazon, as i don’t think a US code will work (regardless of higher s&h costs, possible custom fees and VAT you have to pay extra). Also everything ordered in Europe will normally reach you within 3-4 days at the most.
