New Burning Crusade info

Say hello to Hellfire Citadel.

Blizzard has revealed new details of the Hellfire Citadel, an instance in forthcoming World of Warcraft expansion The Burning Crusade.

Located in the Outlands zone, the citadel served as the Horde's base during the First and Second Wars, after which it remained abandoned - until recently.

Bands of fel orcs have now moved in, and they're growing in number. It's not known who they're working for, though word is it isn't the Burning Legion.

Perhaps most worryingly, "thunderous, savage cries" are echoing from deep beneath the citadel. Are these outbursts somehow linked to the fel orcs and their increasing numbers? Who knows... Well, Blizzard, obviously, but they're not telling.

Nor will they reveal the release date for The Burning Crusade, unfortunately - but we'll keep you posted.
