Worgens, WoW Cataclysm New Race

The worgen are a race of feral wolf-beasts whose very name inspires fear. Theories regarding their history abound, yet the worgen's origins remain steeped in mystery.

Records indicate that the worgen existed for a time in Kalimdor. In fact, more recent evidence suggests that their true origin might have a connection to the night elves and a secretive druidic order from Kalimdor's distant past. Yet until new evidence comes to light, this information remains speculative.

Great demonic wings fan out behind the horned, malefic figure. Standing nearly 7 112 feet tall, the creature’s night elf heritage is evident in its violet skin, longears, and flowingbluehair. It wears tattered cloth pants that do little to conceal its cloven hooves. Jagged tattoos cover its bare chest and arms. It wears a ragged bandage around its head that covers its eyes. It carries two massive warglaives - each etched with demonic runes of power.

While the attention of the Horde and Alliance remained fixed upon Northrend, an ancient evil has been lying dormant within Deepholm, the domain of earth in the Elemental Plane. Hidden away in a secluded sanctuary, the corrupted Dragon Aspect Deathwing has waited, recovering from the wounds of his last battle against Azeroth, nursing his hatred for the inferior creatures that infest the surface realm...and biding his time until he can reforge the world in molten fire.

An ancient evil lies dormant within Deepholm, the domain of earth in the Elemental Plane.

Hidden away in a secluded sanctuary, the corrupted Dragon Aspect Deathwing has waited, recovering from the wounds of his last battle against Azeroth and biding his time until he can reforge the world in molten fire.

Soon, Deathwing the Destroyer will return to Azeroth, and his eruption from Deepholm will sunder the world, leaving a festering wound across the continents.

StarCraft 2 Official Cheat Codes

This is a statement from Blizzard.

You’ve already discovered some of the cheat codes hidden within StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, but you haven’t found them all. We thought it was time to lift the veil and reveal all of the official codes available in the single-player mode. 

Cheat codes can only be used in single-player mode by pressing the enter key within the game and typing in the codes as shown below within the console.

Caution: Before using cheat codes it’s important to understand that using them will prevent additional achievement gains you might have earned through normal play until either a new campaign is started or a prior save is loaded (one from before the use of the first cheat).
