Possible New WoW Alliance Race?
8:34 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

Speculation has been rampant about which new race Alliance players will have available after the release of The Burning Crusade, the first expansion for Blizzard's extrememly popular World of Warcraft MMORPG. The WoW Wiki examines one of the more popular possibilities: the Draenei.

Until recently the rumors about the Draenei centered around the belief that Blizzard would give an "ugly" race to the Alliance to balance out the "pretty" race for the Horde, and that the Draenei are from Outland, an area which will figure prominently in the expansion. The February 2006 issue of Computer Games Magazine added fuel to the flames by claiming the new race would indeed be the Draenei.

Blizzard has officially denied giving any information about the new race to any magazine. CGM's editor-in-chief admits the information should have been labeled as a rumor, but stands by the magazine's sources.

There was an error in the article. It should have been noted that the information about the Draenei being the playable race is, in fact, still a rumor; while we're confidant our sources are accurate, it should not have been presented as a statement of fact.
We regret the error, and any confusion it may have caused.

It is likely the speculation will continue until Blizzard releases more definitive information on the subject. To learn more about the Draenei and the rumors surrounding them click on the link below.
