The New Race is has been revealed...

Spoiler Alert!

Gamespy describes them: (link will probably break soon)
The video, which runs about two minutes, shows off a huge race about the size of Taurens. They have bluish skin (although as with the other races, this could be customizable) and small mindflayer-like tentacles hanging from their chin. They also have a large tail (maybe scaled) and what look like hooves.
They believe it's the Draeni. Idiocy. It's not them... Just wishful thinking. Anyways, how do they know it's the new race?
In talking about the two races, the video shows a representative of the [new alliance race] being introduced in a huge meeting between the kings of the Humans, Dwarves, Gnomes and Night Elves. It also shows the same for the Blood Elves: They are introduced to a war council of the Orcs, Trolls, Taurens and Undead.
It the video is real... Well, then we know what race it is.

Get ready:

It's freakin' the Eredar! Read the description again above and then check this picture out.

Tentacles on face. Huge tail. Hooves. PERFECT MATCH!

You know what this implies? The Eredar are the most friggin' evil race in the entire universe. They're the most bad-ass out of the most bad. They're pure evil. They were the ones who corrupted Sargeras and made him create the Burning Legion, basically establishing the entire storyline of World of Warcraft.

And now they are in the Alliance race. What the hell?

Gratulations on Blizzard on creating a pretty damn cool race that spin lore around and makes you go batcrap insane on wondering what the heck is going on.

Eredar make no sense at all. For starters, they're about as tall as Mount Hyjal. They're also, oh I don't know, DEMONS!? Hello? Has the Cathedral of the Light fallen into that much disfavor, or the Night Elves suffered a race-wide memory loss?

Take a closer look at this picture from the Burning Crusade:

I gotta say, if it is Eredar, I will be sorely disappointed. Way to crap on the lore.
