Ah, Blizzard has confirmed the rumors. The new expansion, entitled The Burning Crusade, looks to be a sizeable one. Features mentioned include:
  • An increase in the level cap to 70
  • Two new playable races, including the magical Blood Elves
  • New starting zones in Quel'Thalas and beyond
  • The entire new continent of Outland, reachable through the Dark Portal
  • Many new high-level dungeons to explore in Azeroth,Outland, and elsewhere
  • New flying mounts in Outland
  • New mobs, bosses, quests and items
  • A new profession: Jewelcrafting
  • Socketed items
  • ....er, socketed items? Call me a noob but I don't know what that means. The FAQ doesn't clarify the point.

    Information on additional races is not being released yet. But it appears there will be at least one more aside from the Blood Elves. Here are a few of the screenshots and movies.
