Was watching live, I believe it will be able to be downloaded *prior* to midnight, that's just when the servers will go up. We will probably be able to download it a week or more in advance."Cataclysm will go live at Midnight on December 7th, PST Time. Digital pre-orders will be able to download everything before it goes live to make sure they can play instantly on release day. "

With most digital games that I have purchased off steam as a preorder, you can have the game downloaded and completely installed and updated long before the game goes live. You just get a message that the game is not unlocked yet if you try to launch it. I suspect Cataclysm will be the same, but since it is not a steam game there are no guarantees until Bliz gives more official info.

I would think that if you install it, you won't be able to log in to the live servers until they switch over, unless you have a second full install of the game.
