We've known for some time now
that Blizzard's upcoming expansion to World of Warcraft
, Wrath of the Lich King
, would introduce new dynamics to the PvP game. Siege weaponry, destroyable buildings, and other new features will be central to the conflict over Lake Wintergrasp. In a brief excerpt from an interview with the site PC Zone, CVG is reporting that the Blizzard developers are mighty enthused by possibilities of the zone
They're also quite serious about the PvP nature of the zone. Jeff Kaplan is quoted as saying 'in no way, shape or form will we support PvE players in [Lake Wintergrasp]'
. This would seem to address one of the big vulnerabilities that WoW has
in the face of Warhammer's upcoming launch. Dedicated world PvP areas is a feature players have been asking after for some time. It will be interesting to see what player reaction will be to all this PvP love.
