New WoW Crusade Race
7:58 AM | Cord Kruse | 11 comments

Blizzard Entertainment has officially announced the second new race to be offered in the upcoming Burning Crusade expansion for World of Warcraft. The Draenei will be joining the forces of the Alliance. An uncorrupted faction of the Eredar, the Drenai refused to join Sargeras and were forced to flee from the demonic forces. After battling the the Horde the Drenai found themselves mutated by their enemy's fel magics.

From the Burning Crusade website:

Deeply relieved, Velen gathered the other eredar who had thus far refused to join Sargeras. Naming themselves the draenei, or "exiled ones" in the Eredun language, the renegades barely escaped from Argus, with the Burning Legion only moments behind. Kil'jaeden was furious with what he felt was Velen's betrayal, and the demon vowed to hunt Velen and the rest of the draenei to the ends of the cosmos if need be.

The Legion chased the draenei for many thousands of years. The draenei visited many worlds and explored much of the known cosmos in their quest to find safe harbor. Still the Legion would not give up its pursuit. Meanwhile, the enigmatic naaru race blessed the draenei with Light-given knowledge and power. The naaru explained that there were other forces in the cosmos that would stand against the Burning Legion. One day the naaru would forge them into a single unstoppable army of the Light. Deeply affected by the naaru's words, the draenei vowed to honor the Light and uphold the naaru's altruistic ideals.

Blizzard also provided an update on the history of the Blood Elves (the new Horde race included in the new expansion), as well as new screenshots and gameplay footage of The Burning Crusade and the upcoming Naxxramas dungeon.
