7:19 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
With Blizzard's recent announcement of The Burning Crusade, the expansion for World of Warcraft, the first flurry of previews has made its way to the web. Today we have five courtesy of 1Up.com, Gamespy, Gamepro, Gamebunny, and Atomicmpc. Several of the reviews also include information about upcoming content for the original World of Warcraft as well.
In an earlier panel about WoW lore and quest design Blizzard creative director Chris Metzen commented about how the blood elves are completely addicted to magic. This mana/drug addiction extends into both their abilities and some of their quests.From Gamespy:
Draenor itself is a remarkable place, a shattered world filled with floating rocks and chasms that open into the emptiness of space. It also houses plenty of high spaces that are simply unreachable by running or even with an ordinary mount. That's why the expansion pack will be introducing elite flying mounts.From Gamepro:
With the increased level cap, expect harder and grander instances--eventually leading to Illidan in the Black Temple and Medivh's Tower. The post-60 content will be centered in the murky Outlands continent, accessible through the Dark Portal.From Gamebunny:
As you can gather from the freshly-released official screenshots, Sunstrider is painted in shining gold, red and orange colors. The architecture is reminiscent of ancient Middle Eastern fantasy with a touch of whimsy thrown in.From Atomicmpc:
Players will also find new dungeons, including the Caverns of Time in Tanaris where players will be able to venture back in time and take part in battles from previous Warcraft games, and Medivh's Tower in Deadwind Pass.To read the previews in their entirety follow the links below.
