- An increase in the level cap to 70
- Two new playable races (including Blood Elves)
- New starting zones

The official word comes via a scanned CGW article which Gaming Steve tracked down. You can view the scanned pages here: Pages 1-2, Pages 3-4, Pages 5-6, Pages 7-8, and Pages 9-10. Now I’m all excited. Of course I still need to land a job before I can even beginning to think of playing this.
