Blizzard Entertainment's third expansion to the ever-popular massively multiplayer online role-playing game doesn't yet have a release date, but that didn't stop its maker from announcing and detailing the $80 Collection's Edition for World of Warcraft: Cataclysm today.

In addition to the game disc, players will find a number of exclusive items in the collector's edition ranging from a Lil' Deathwing in-game pet to a behind-the-scenes DVD with more than an hour's worth of footage detailing the game's development.
