Burning Crusade Previewed
8:39 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Pro-G recently posted a detailed preview of The Burning Crusade, the eagerly awaited first expansion for World of Warcraft. The game adds a variety of goodies to WoW including an increased level cap, controllable flying mounts, and a vast new continent to explore.

Us game journalists are often guilty of over-exuberance, using tired and well-worn phrases like "jaw-dropping" and "stunning" to describe games that perhaps don't deserve it. But I can categorically deny that the following sentence contains any hype: as soon as you emerge on the other side of the Dark Portal, your jaw will drop with such ferocity that it'll knock the keys out of your keyboard.

You're spat out onto the front lines of a quite spectacular battle between the demons of the Burning Legion and the combined forces of the Alliance and the Horde. At the base of the Stair of Destiny, overlooked by the imposing giant portal, a hundred NPCs are desperately trying to fend off a gargantuan Pit Commander, a bulging winged demon with tusks and a huge sword, and his equally impressive side kicks - Wrath Masters, Infernal Siegebreakers and Fel Soldiers. Burning magical energy of all colours zips across the screen from the fingertips of Stormwind mages. The sound of Darkspear Troll Axes and Darnassian Archer arrows sinking into demon flesh is drowned out by the screams of dying Orgrimmar Grunts. It's the kind of scene you'd expect to see depicted alongside the word: "chaos" in the Oxford English Dictionary. And yes, it's absolutely stunning.

To check out the rest of the preview head over to the site listed below.
