8:49 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
Blizzard has posted part 2 of their Battlegrounds preview for World of Warcraft. A concentrated PvP event meant for a large number of players, the Battlegrounds offer a chance to stage epic battles between the Horde and the Alliance.
Part 2 of the preview discusses some of the tasks players will be faced with. For example, victory conditions for a battle include both the killing of the enemy's general as well as destroying their main base. Standing in the way will be a host of high-level NPC guards, as well as a defensive structure known as a Tower:
Towers are defensive structures garrisoned by several NPC guards. The garrison is armed with extremely long ranged bows or guns, and can snipe at enemy players from far away. These towers will send volleys of fire at onrushing attackers, softening them up before they crash into the wall of defending enemy players and NPCs.Other features discussed include the rebuilding of structures and PvP-related quests that offer various rewards useful in Battlegrounds play.
In other news, Blizzard recently announced the launch of WoW in Korea.
