A quick look at The Burning Crusade, without the religious fervour and piles of burning lumber.
1UP has posted a preview of the World of Warcraft expansion, The Burning Crusade. The preview focuses on the new Horde race, the Blood Elves. Now all the men hiding their female side can play a more attractive female character. There is your Halloween scare.
" The first thing you notice about Sunstrider Isle is that it feels a lot like an Alliance town. There's lots of foliage and animals and green and blue and so on, unlike Horde starting areas which are liberally covered with black and brown. Also, because BlizzCon is the only place to check out the expansion, there were a ton of blood elf characters -- so much that in any quest that involves killing things, the time it takes for a creature to respawn is longer than usual due to everyone else killing the same creatures you're going after. The gameworld was set to night time, which made Sunstider Isle look a bit like the Night Elf regions (and not as color crazy as the screenshots in our news story earlier today), but, just as the Horde finally has a "hot female" race to play as, it now has a picturesque little zone to hang out in as well.
