WoW: Cataclysm to launch in China next month

The Cataclysm expansion for ubiquitous MMO World of Warcraft gets it Chinese release on July 12th.

This is the fastest a WoW expansion has been released in China after its release in the rest of the world. Both The Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King eventually found release there, though.

There is a history of trouble between the MMO and the Chinese government, who on the other hand don’t place themselves above having prisoners gold farm the game.
