WoW - Before the Storm Preview @ GameSpy
GameSpy takes a look at what's in store for players of World of Warcraft with the release of the Before the Storm patch.
In preparation for the launch of The Burning Crusade next month, Blizzard today released the final pre-expansion v2.0.1 update to World of Warcraft. Clocking in at around 500MB, it is the largest update the game has yet seen, one that brings with it some far-reaching changes to its fundamentals. Though the live servers have yet to come up as of 4 p.m., there is already a good bit of speculation as to how these changes will affect the game, from both players who have schooled themselves by poring over the patch notes, and those who have sampled the content first-hand on WoW's public test servers. We'll have first-hand impressions once the servers have come back up, but for now here's a roundup of what to expect from the update Blizzard has termed "Before the Storm."
