Burning Crusade Preview
1:34 PM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Actiontrip recently posted a detailed preview of The Burning Crusade, Blizzard Entertainment's upcoming first expansion for World of Warcraft. The eagerly awaited Crusade will offer an increased level cap, two new playable races, and the addition of the entirely new continent of Outworld to explore.

We know that the upcoming content patch 1.12 has been dubbed the PVP patch. Blizzard is already promising improved world PVP, multi-realm Battlegrounds and other enhancements, but what the Burning Crusade expansion clearly needs to concentrate on is to better define the structure of PVP combat. The direction of the next content update shows that Blizzard is listening to their vocal community after all, at least to a degree. Likely, they are paying close attention to what Mythic is talking about implementing in WAR, PVP-wise. Here’s what World of Warcraft lead designer Jeff Kaplan had to say on the subject to Gamespot: “We're building a PVP objective into every new Outland zone for outdoor world PVP. They're different for each zone. Hellfire Peninsula actually has three objectives that are very close to each other. Picture an outdoor Arathi Basin that's always ongoing. We're going to have some other big announcements that have to do with the PVP system, but that will be closer to launch, so we're not ready to talk about that yet.”
