Drive-by ganking will soon be possible in World of Warcraft, courtesy of siege vehicles in the upcoming expansion's purpose built, non-instanced PvP area: Wintergrasp. Powerful to varying degrees on their own, some vehicles act as troop carriers (shielding and transporting players inside), while still others have a "gunner" position in addition to the driver, and still others are full-fledged battlewagons, allowing players ranged-attack capability with their character's own skills while embarked. For which is which and how it all works out, check out this video, recorded live at Blizzard Invitational '08, below!
