Jeff Kaplan Discusses Wrath Of The Lich King
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Computers and Video Games has posted an excerpt from a PC Zone interview with Blizzard Entertainment's Jeff Kaplan, lead designer for the upcoming Wrath of the Lich King, the second expansion for the successful World of Warcraft. The interview snippet includes Kaplan's commentary on the new PvP zone in Wrath.

A "cool part of Northrend is new big PvP zone. It's about the size of Westfall, and will be all-PvP - in no way, shape or form will we support PvE players in it", the developer's Jeff Kaplan has told PC Zone.

He continued, "It'll be optional, but it'll be completely non-instanced, have multiple objectives, siege weapons and destructible buildings".

In the interview, Kaplan went on to promise that WoW adventurers will have their socks blown off when they first enter the new continent of Northrend.

"We absolutely need to make the entry to Northrend epic", he said. "...we originally had the entry to Burning Crusade's Dark Portal as a bunch of cohorts waling around, and people reacted badly. This really hammered home the fact that we needed to raise expectations on entering the expansions".
