Cataclysm Screenshot of the Day [Updated More or Less Daily]

#1 Unread post by Mania » Thu Apr 29, 2010 8:29 pm

Blizzard is going to start seeding their Screenshot of the Day feature with Cataclysm screenshots, including "our favorite new World of Warcraft creatures".

Says Zarhym:
With development on World of Warcraft: Cataclysm well underway, the Screenshot of the Day section on http://www.worldofwarcraft.com will now display unique Cataclysm screenshots every day! We’re capturing images of our favorite new World of Warcraft creatures, characters, and environments, and are eager to share them with you. Be sure to stop by each day for the latest look behind the veil of the expansion’s development progress.

Screenshot of the day: http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/downloads/ssotd/#latest
I'll be keeping a close eye out for anything new that looks tameable.

Nice way to make people drool more Blizz.

Hopefully they'll be including shots of the worgen and goblin mounts too. (Because if the goblin mount is indeed that suped-up go-cart I'm saving every honor point to buy the PvP model.)

This much around-the-corner-but-not-today-ness is giving me anxiety attacks.

(Admittedly minor ones, compared to the things that actually panic me like leaving the house, but still ...)

Yah this almost daily information about the expansion has really gotten the hype right up there. It's like your teasing a dog by dangling meat in front of it but not letting the dog eat it.

Mmm, so this was why it was a foblin (fish + goblin)... and some coral...

I would so put the goblin in an aquarium and keep him for a pet. For the record.

*nod* I saw that. Feels a bit flimsy on its own, but clearly we're moving closer and closer ...

A thread titled "This just in!" with links to news and tidbits that just came out might be appropriate, but then again everyone can just check them themselves...

*cough* I didn't see the big 'BETA' label on the bottom of the Cataclysm artwork. That's why I wasn't very excited. (I just work up, okay?)

I need more caffeine ...

WOW! I was licking my lips at the sight of that! ... There is no way that is Blasted Land! I really like that bridge and the new water, and the trees, and the foginess, and the mountains.

I wonder why though they are dragging there feet on this expansion. At the rate there going I'm starting to have my doubts we will even see it come out this year at all.

When asked about the female worgen he had this to say

The Blasted Lands!
Now that's what you call a major overhaul. Quick, someone save some pics of the area before Cata so one day we can say.."Well I remember when the Blasted Lands was nothing but a garrish orange and purple colored desert."

With the new water textures I didn't even believe it was WoW at first, let alone Blasted Lands. :shock:
