World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

As part of their BlizzCon 2019 announcements, Blizzard officially announced the next expansion for World of Warcraft. True to the rumors and leaks, it is indeed called World of Warcraft: Shadowlands.

While the expansion is indeed available for pre-order (starting at $39.99 USD), it won't be released until some time in 2020. We have some 4K screenshots, the first cinematic trailer, and the first details revealed yet for the eighth expansion for World of Warcraft.





  • EXPLORE THE REALM OF THE DEAD—For the first time in World of Warcraft, cross into the Shadowlands, a realm of infinite afterlives where wonders and horrors abound. Ride across the gleaming fields of Bastion, lose yourself among the gothic spires of Revendreth, confront the twisted visions of the Maw, and more.
  • PLEDGE YOURSELF TO A COVENANT AND SHAPE YOUR DESTINY—The Covenants who hold dominion over the zones introduced in Shadowlands are eager to recruit Azeroth’s champions. Each has unique story line and an array of powers they bestow upon those who pledge their cause. Choose between Bastion’s valiant Kyrian or Revendreth’s cunning Venthyr, fight for the mighty Necrolords of Maldraxxus, or seek renewal with the untamed Night Fae of Ardenweald.
  • TAKE ON THE BOUNDLESS CHALLENGE OF TORGHAST, TOWER OF THE DAMNEDThe vilest souls in existence are damned to suffer eternal torment in this horrific, otherworldly prison. This everchanging, roguelike challenge is open to solo players and groups of up to five, and those who brave its trials will earn some of the afterlife’s worthiest rewards.
  • JOURNEY THROUGH A NEW LEVELING EXPERIENCE—Level up your next hero through a fully revamped 1–50 experience where every level is meaningful, then advance to the new level cap of 60 in the Shadowlands.
