World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Free Trials Now Available
Starting today, Blizzard is attempting to seduce those of you who haven't purchased the Cataclysm expansion for World of Warcraft. They're offering a free 10-day trial.
Any current or previous subscriber who has purchased the Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King expansions to WoW is eligible for the trial. During the 10 days, you will be able to play the new Goblin and Worgen starting areas. If you already have a level 78+ character, you can take them into the new high-end zones. However, your experience gains will be capped one point below level 81.
If you decide to upgrade to Cataclysm after your trial, you'll have to pay the normal $39.99. Until then, any Worgen/Goblin characters you created during the free play period will be locked. High level characters in expansion zones will be transported back to a non-expansion area but they'll be able to keep whatever items or gold they earned.
