Cataclysm Preview: The Southern Barrens

Cataclysm Preview: The Southern Barrens - World of Warcraft - MMORPG.com

World of Warcraft developers Dave Kosak and Roman Marotte have been interviewed in house about the drastically altered Southern Barrens zone set to appear in the Cataclysm expansion. With Deathwing's return, the zone has been dramatically altered. The Southern Barrens are in constant upheaval as Horde and Alliance forces continue to battle for supremacy.

Q. Without giving up any spoilers, what's the general storyline for this zone? How has it changed from the original design?

A. "An eye for an eye" is the theme, with each side taking and losing ground, descending deeper and deeper into violent conflict. From the Horde perspective, players will learn the grim fate of Camp Taurajo and Honor's Stand. It's then up to the players to rally their faction's disorganized forces, initiate a change in local leadership, and avenge the sacking of Taurajo. The Alliance, meanwhile, struggles to hold on to recent gains, fending off attacks from all fronts. Players will also fight to save Northwatch Hold from the brink of capture and keep the roadways from Theramore open. Additionally, both factions have to deal with the explosive growth of a strange new jungle spreading across the Barrens. This is all entirely new content for the expansion.
