    What's so special about it? Only thing that seems different is the "Saga of wonder and imagination..." greeting.

    Its not a sequal or expansion to any game they already have. so its not SC2 or Diablo3 or Warcraft4 etc. It will be announced at ECTS in London.

    I'm more interested in what type of atmosphere it's set in. Where in history/the future, and what the whole storyline is.

    Haha, blizzard made a big mistake and accidentally sent out some e-mails informing about their new game. It's titled World of Warcraft and is a massively multiplayer online game. linkage: http://www.capceramica.com/wow/wow.htm

    edit: try going to www.worldofwarcraft.com, it goes to the same preview that is on blizzard's main site.

    I wonder if this is a hoax?

    The main reason I'd say it's a hoax is that announcing WoW after they're already developing War3 just generally can be confusing. Other then that I see no fault (but I haven't really scrutinized very much). Still, a Warcraft style MMORPG would be really cool. Besides, in a massively multiplayer game I'd guess it to be a lot easier to track down a PK'er :evil:.

    :rofl: Ya it would. FYI MMORPG (I think)=massively-multiplayer, online role playing game. Basically from that preview it sounds like Warcraft 3 (controlling a hero with a small army) across what might be all of the known world. Personally I think it would be badass to trek from New Stormwind up to Lordaeron, or take a ship across the great sea to Quel-Thalas. Unfortunately it kind of dilutes the story, it's not like in real warcraft there'd be 200,000 individual heroes with their own armies questing across the land at any one time...

    Damn I know too much about Warcraft :D.

    yeah, a Star Wars MMORPG has already been announced, but I haven't heard anything about Star Trek. Unless you count NetTrek, but that's more of a space combat sim, heheheh
