At its Blizzcon conference in Anaheim, Calif. on Friday, Blizzard Entertainment revealed the first details of an expansion pack planned for World of Warcraft called The Burning Crusade.

As an online game, World of Warcraft teams up thousands of players on online servers, where they’re charged a monthly fee in order to play. The game has become an international phenomenon, spurrings hundreds of thousands of players to subscribe. It was released simultaneously for the Mac and PC late in 2004 and has been maintained for both platforms ever since.

The add-on pack, The Burning Crusade, will expand the game with new races, new lands to explore, new “Battlegrounds” upon which to fight other players, additional professions, new items and more. Gamers who install the expansion pack will be able to increase their characters’ experience cap to Level 70 (Level 60 is the current limit).
