The Burning Crusade is the first expansion for World of Warcraft. In The Burning Crusade, Blood Elves and Drainei were both introduced as playable races. Outland, one of the many worlds in World of Warcraft, was also released with The Burning Crusade expansion pack. Quests inside of The Burning Crusade go on the same path, so to speak, as the quests in the original World of Warcraft. The Burning Crusade revolves around Outland more than anything, but partially around Blood Elves with the Horde, and Drainei with the Alliance. There was also more things released going around Illidan, and, what a coincidence, has relation to Outland. The expansion pack was announced on October 28th, 2005, and was released on January 15th, 2007 in North America, Europe, and Australia.
