    Atomicgamer took some time to give us their thoughts on the upcoming Burning Crusades expansion to World of Warcraft.

    And the real-life atmosphere surrounding this expansion is a little different than what we saw two years ago when WoW was only just released. Gamers are rabidly anticipating the chance to go out, explore this new world of Outland, and level up their characters to the new maximum level: 70. But TBC isn't only made for the people who "raid" every single night, getting newer and more powerful gear. They've added two new races to the game: the Alliance gets the beefy Draenai race who have crash-landed on the planet of Azeroth due to the Burning Legion's arrival, and the Blood Elves are a new Horde race that used to once be the High Elves.

  • CES Pre-Launch Chat with Brad McQuaid and Paul Luna

    MMORPG.com had a chance to sit and talk with Brad and Paul at CES. Keep reading to see what they were able to learn!

    With their marketing collaboration with SoE, Brad McQuaid and Paul Luna of Sigil Games showed Vanguard: Saga of Heroes at CES 2007 at invited press appointments. After introductions, we chatted about our gaming history and when Paul asked if I were familiar with Brad, my answer was tongue in cheek as I replied that I was familiar with Aradune, a wood-elf ranger in EverQuest who wore green splint mail and implied that he hacked Soulfire – the Paladin epic weapon so he could wield it.

  • Vanguard Preview from CES

    WarCry.com has posted their preview of the upcoming Vanguard: Saga of Heroes from CES.

    Vanguard is essentially a game of choices. It is designed as a social game much like EverQuest was and provides incentives to players to do things together, but also allows a player to solo if they choose to. Some adventure and quest content will require a group or groups of players to defeat, likewise players working together to gather resources, for example, open up opportunities with the combination of their skills to obtain better raw materials that they as a solo harvester may not be able to do.

  • Burning Crusade Preview #2

    FiringSquad has posted their second look at the upcoming Burning Crusade expansion for World of Warcraft.

    First off, the entry to the new areas of the game is through the Dark Portal in the Blasted Lands. Now, instead of having the whole area infested with demons, there's a base camp for the Alliance and Horde. Of course, the other side of that gate is where all the new content lays waiting. Once you go through that gate, the new adventure begins.

  • On the eve of its launch, IGN has gathered a few more details about Saga of Heroes.

    IGN shares their thoughts with us about the soon to be released Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.

    Part of what differentiates Vanguard from other MMOs is its community aspect. Players are encouraged to work with others and build a community together. You can build your own house and decorate it with trophies won while questing. Then you can invite other players over to show off your stuff. You can make your house either public or private, with permissions available to be doled out to those you deem worthy.

  • As Sigil's labor of love enters the fifth phase of its beta period, GameSpy takes a look at how far it has come.

    Gamespy updated their look at Vanguard: Saga of Heroes over the weekend. Don't miss out...

    I've been following the progress of Vanguard: Saga of Heroes for what seems like years now. As the MMO lovechild of both Brad McQuaid and Jeff Butler (the geniuses behind EverQuest), one could argue that it's worth the wait just to see what the guys that just about invented the genre come up with. Harried by publisher issues and an overzealous fanbase, it has been a bumpy road for the folks at Sigil, but now that Vanguard has opened its doors to FilePlanet subscribers (click this link to go check it out), we thought it was a good time to take a look at the changes the game has undergone since the earliest days of the closed beta.

  • Vanguard Preview

    GamersInfo.net has added their thoughts to the round of previews today.

    I'm one of those people who is a fan of MMO's in general. If it has multiple people playing together online, I'll probably at least try it. It was Christmas seven years ago that my husband and I bought one another our first MMO, his and hers copies of Everquest, and I've been hooked on MMO's ever since. So when we had an opportunity to join Vanguard beta and take an early look at the game, I was more than a little excited. I knew enough about the game and Brad McQuaid to know that this game had potential to take me back to those glory days of my first MMO.

  • First Impressions

    Eurogamer.net has posted a preview of Vanguard:Saga of Heroes on their site today.

    Perhaps, on reflection, Sigil Games might feel that putting the word "Saga" into the name was asking for trouble. Calling a game a "Saga" of anything, aside from inviting silly jokes about old age pensioners that don't play very well beyond England's shores, also practically guarantees that your development process will indeed become a Saga - a long, drawn out and somewhat painful experience abounding with whispered half-truths and vague generalisations. Still - even given the number of misconceptions and conflicting views which exist on the topic of Vanguard, Sigil's developers can at least count themselves lucky that they avoided the "Forever" pitfall, eh?
