Super late to the WoW train? Had an account ages ago and need to get up to date on expansions? The World of Warcraft Battle Chest has undergone a couple of changes, one of which being the addition of the Cataclysm expansion.

The inclusion of Cataclysm brings the total expansions included in the one-time purchase up to three, plus the standalone game. Buyers will have to pick up Mists of Pandaria separately, but the cost for this new package continues to sit at $19.99. Mists of Pandaria costs $39.99.

Along with this update comes the removal of the 'Battle Chest' name from the World of Warcraft package, which is now just dubbed 'World of Warcraft' on the official Blizzard store.

Physical copies of this set will be arriving in retailers soon, but the digital version can be found via the Blizzard store right now. The removal of the 'Battle Chest' name is a bit saddening, but World of Warcraft will live on without it.

World of Warcraft has been a staple in the gaming community for years. We’ve seen it through expansion after expansion. Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, and now Mists of Pandaria have all expanded the world of Azeroth and brought new races and classes to the game.

But that’s not all that has changed.

Battle Chests are bundles that allow gamers to get the base game and its expansions in one easy purchase. Originally, the Battle Chest was a box set of World of Warcraft and Burning Crusade. It also featured a guide for each game and a couple of Guest Pass Keys. This edition cost $39.99.

Since then, the Battle Chest has been available via digital download. This edition featured World of Warcraft, Burning Crusade, and Wrath of the Lich King. At only $19.99, it was a steal.

Now, Blizzard has added Cataclysm to their newest edition of the Battle Chest, leaving only Mists of Pandaria as a separate purchase. Like its predecessor, this bundle will cost a mere $19.99 and is online now. A physical box set should be in stores soon.
