WoW’s closed Cataclysm beta launches

The closed beta for World of Warcraft‘s third expansion, Cataclysm, is a go, Blizzard has announced.

The company began issuing invites earlier today, so those who’ve applied best check those emails and accounts. They make no mention how many participants they’ve selected though, or if they’re planning on expending as the beta progresses; it might help if you go in fingers crossed.

Blizzard’s keeping the expansion’s release date close to the chest for the time being as well. It is expected later this year though.
