Burning Crusade Previewed
9:03 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Trusted Reviews has posted a new preview of Blizzard Entertainment's The Burning Crusade, the first expansion for the ever popular World of Warcraft. Adding a new level cap, controllable flying mounts, and an entirely new continent to explore, the expansion is poised to be a hit with fans of the game.

Outland is stacked full of new dungeons aimed squarely at the Level 60 and above player. Obviously you’ll have a take a few friends along with you if you want to survive these new dens of iniquity, but you won’t have to round up 39 other players to form a raiding party like before. Blizzard was keen to point out that it has reduced the maximum number of players for Raid dungeons to 24, to facilitate smoother progression. The problem with the 40 player limit, was that guilds recruiting for raids were constantly doing just that, recruiting. With the lower limit, Blizzard is hoping that it won’t take quite so long to get an angry rabble together in order to complete a raid.

There are seven regions within the continent of Outland. As you step out of the Dark Portal you’ll find yourself in Hellfire Peninsular – home of Hellfire Citadel. Hellfire Citadel is the first dungeon of Outland and has three wings with monsters ranging from Level 60 through to 70, along with a fourth Raid wing. The other regions – Netherstorm, Blade’s Edge Mountains, Zangarmarsh, Terokkar Forest, Shadowmoon Valley and Nagrand – also contain dungeons to explore, apart from the latter. It’s also worth noting that you’ll need a flying mount to access some of the Outland territories.
