The battle in Northrend is joined...

Matching the ever-growing popularity of PvP in World of Warcraft, Blizzard is making some heady additions to team-based competitive gameplay in the game's next retail expansion, Wrath of the Lich King. Along with vehicular combat and siege warfare in the open-PvP zone of Wintergrasp, two new arenas requiring distinct strategies will be opening up in the cities of Dalaran and Orgrimmar, and the expansion will also offer its own unique D-Day invasion-style
"Northrend battleground" as well.

Lead Designer Tom Chilton and Lead Level Designer Cory Stockton lay out these innovative PvP instances for you in this final WotLK PvP arena & battleground video recorded live at Blizzard Invitational '08. Premium members get a bonus 20 minutes of Q&A from the presentation as well!
