Competition for World of Warcraft is heating up these days, and the MMO market is only getting more crowded over time, with massive titles like BioWare's Star War: The Old Republic and ArenaNet's Guild Wars 2 edging toward release.
Still, Blizzard is keeping the WoW updates rolling out, and the latest content update for World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, Rage of the Firelands, promises new content in the form of a new raid, "diverse" daily quests, interface updates, and more. Now if you aren't actually a subscriber, then it may interest you to learn that the game's trial time restrictions have been lifted with the latest patch, meaning you can play as much as you like, assuming you don't mind sticking to a maximum level of 20.
The new trial version has been named "World of Warcraft Starter Edition." Folks who had previously signed up for the old 10- or 14-day trials can pick up wherever they left off with the Starter Edition and continue their lowbie adventures.
