Rumor: Next World of Warcraft Expansion to Add Worgen, Goblin Races

By Nick Breckon, Aug 10, 2009 12:50pm PDT Several sources "close to the situation" have told that the next World of Warcraft expansion will diversify the game's population with two new playable races.

The expansion--rumored to be dubbed "Cataclysm"--will add the Goblin race to the Horde side, with the Alliance gaining the werewolf-like Worgen race, according to the report.

Left, the diminutive Goblins. Right, the beastly Worgen.
Blizzard has yet to announce a scrap of information related to the next World of Warcraft expansion. Any official word is likely to come at the company's BlizzCon convention, set to begin on August 21.

As a former Horde player, the prospect of facing an army of players affiliated with the Son of Arugal--that elite level 20 backstabbing son of a bitch--is certainly intimidating.
