Storm the Beach!
Blizzard's PvP discussion panel at last weekends Worldwide Invitational in Paris talked about everything PvP. The panel was made up of Tom Chilton (Lead Game Designer), and Cory Stockton (Lead Level Designer) and they covered lots of PvP information. In this fourth article covering the panel, Byron "Messiah" Mudry gives you the rundown on the battleground being added to the game with Wrath of the Lich King. It looks like it will be a very exciting place where we will get further opportunity to play with siege vehicles.
The arena layout reminds me much of a Dieppe type beach assault (for all you American readers, think Normandy). The attacking force lands on the beach coming out of assault boats and has to fight their way up the beach towards the objective at the top of the ridge. There are several wall sections that need to be destroyed, and flags and graveyards to capture so that you can continue to advance.
You can find all the details in our Sneak Peek - New Wrath of the Lich King Battleground.
