Join us at 9 p.m. PST on Monday, December 6 at the Fountain Valley Fry’s Electronics in Southern California for the Cataclysm midnight launch. Help us celebrate the dawn of a new age with the powerful music of The Artists Formerly Known as Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain, an epic /dance competition, autographs from the development team, and more.

The party begins at 9 p.m. so be sure to arrive early, and get your copy* signed by the developers when the store opens at midnight on December 7.

If you don’t live close enough to Southern California to make it, don’t worry -- there are other select retail locations opening at midnight around North America to celebrate the launch of Cataclysm. For a list of participating stores, check out the websites below:
