One of the smaller announcements at last weekend’s BlizzCon was that digital copies of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm will be available for pre-order and pre-download, so you can have everything installed and hop right into the expansion at midnight on December 7th. Of course, this alleviates you from having to stand awkwardly in like with dozens of other crazy-eyed WoW-obsessed players at a midnight launch event at GameStop, and that might just be worth buying the game digitally.
It was announced today that these digital pre-orders are now available, and you can purchase the game right from the Battle.net site. How nifty is that? You can also check out a quick Q&A that Blizzard put together that may answer some of your questions about this digital pre-order procedure.
