World of Warcraft Expansion Delayed To 2007

Here’s the news at Gamasutra

Burning Crusade, originally slated for a late-November release, will see a delay until January of 2007

I’d like to take this opportunity to suggest you try EverQuest 2 while you wait. I have high level characters in both games, and it’s my own humble opinion that EQ2 is now a better game. It’s the one I’m still active in, anyway. You can find it for $10 (with a free month) at big game/electronic stores, and there is also free trial download available on the website.

The two games released within a week of each other in 2004, and when they did, WoW was a far better game. This is why I left EQ2 early on and played WoW for a year. Sony has impressed the heck out of me (as a software professional) with how much they have improved the usability, the playability, and expanded on the game content since release. Thus I’m back in EQ2, and WoW is on hold.

‘Better’ is clearly subjective – so all I’m suggesting is that you check it out yourself while you wait. If anyone else has played both considerably, it’d be a lively comment discussion to trade our opinions about the games here.

    Let’s also not forget that next month EQ2’s third expansion launches, Echoes of Faydwer. For $40 you not only get Echoes of Faydwer, but the base game, and the first two expansions Desert of Flames and Kingdom of Sky.

    Hi Xalmat, and great point. For anyone who thinks they might keep playing EQ2, the new expansion. Echoes of Faydwer is a bargain. Yes, it’s their third major expansion, and no it’s not late. Desert of Flames isn’t interesting til you’re level 45 – but Kingdom of Sky enables Alternate Advancement abilities that begin at level 20, and also allows relatively quick transportation between the evil city of Freeport and the good city of Qeynos. That capability is analogous to the boats and the zepellin that take you from continent to continent in WoW. It’s worth spending $40, yep, especially compared to what you’ll get buying any other new game for that amount or more.
