Burning Crusade Q&A
8:21 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

WarCry has posted a new interview with Blizzard's Tom Chilton about the recently released expansion for World of Warcraft, The Burning Crusade. The interview examines the changes made to the game and offers a few hints at future additions to the popular online world.

WarCry: Can we expect to see a "heroic" type Zul'Gurub, Onyxia, Molten Core, Anh'Qiraj, Blackwing Lair, and Naxxramas, or is it likely that players aren't going to have any need for those dungeons?

Tom Chilton: We don't have any plans to add a heroic mode to these dungeons at this time. On the other hand, the players who feel they may have missed out on the opportunity to experience many of these encounters may find these dungeons much more accessible to them now. In fact, we're already seeing that many players are taking the newfound power they've obtained through new items, talents, and abilities as they've leveled past 60 to Azeroth to explore the dungeons there, sometimes for the first time.

WarCry: The Caverns of Time add a huge opportunity to experience more and more of what has happened in Warcraft history. Is it possible that we'll see more Caverns of Time instances besides what is being released at launch?

Tom Chilton: The Caverns of Time opens up a lot of new opportunities for us to create content that gives players a chance to go into Warcraft history and experience it firsthand. It's a great way for us to bring the lore of Warcraft to life in a whole new way. It's very possible that we will add more to the Caverns of Time at some point in the future to expand upon the many experiences that players can have in them.
