At last month's Electronic Entertainment Expo, Blizzard announced a fifth new playable race to the upcoming massive multiplayer game, World of Warcraft, the Night Elves. Blizzard recently posted some new information regarding the Night Elves as well as new screenshots of the race.
Here's some more info on the latest race:
The reclusive Night Elves were the first race to awaken in the World of Warcraft. These shadowy, immortal beings were the first to study magic and let it loose throughout the world nearly ten thousand years before Warcraft I. The Night Elves' reckless use of magic drew the Burning Legion into the world and led to a catastrophic war between the two titanic races. The Night Elves barely managed to banish the Legion from the world, but their wondrous homeland was shattered and drowned by the sea. Until recently, the Night Elves closed themselves off from the rest of the world and remained hidden atop their holy mountain of Hyjal for many thousands of years. The Legion's invasion brought the Night Elves out of their long period of slumber. They now have renewed interest in shaping the world, and for the first time are allying themselves with other races to insure the continued survival of Azeroth. As a race, Night Elves are typically honorable and just, but they are very distrusting of the 'lesser races' of the world. They are nocturnal by nature and their shadowy powers often elicit the same distrust that they have for their mortal neighbors.According to Blizzard, beta testing is expected to begin in Q3 (sometime between August and October), and it will be done in stages. There's no word yet on when it will be officialy released. For more information on World of Warcraft, head to its official web site through the link provided below.
