Dive into the MMO's eight expansion from Blizzard.
World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

Blizzard's eighth major expansion for their popular MMORPG, World of Warcraft, launched just a short time ago this evening. This expansion takes players to a "world beyond the mortal realm" known as the Shadowlands.

Players on both sides, Horde and Alliance, will "come face-to-face with the mysteries of death as they journey through the next world's wondrous realms." Those adventurers will get to team up with one of four ruling Covenants in Shadowlands. They will use powers earned in these Covenants to take on the Jailer, a "malevolent entity who holds dominion over the hopeless depths of the Maw."

Players’ resolve will be tested as they seek to reclaim lost souls from the Jailer’s watchful eye and venture into the labyrinthine corridors of Torghast, Tower of the Damned, where long-imprisoned horrors—and legendary rewards—await.
If you do not yet have a character ready for the content, the Heroic and Epic Editions of the expansion will include a Shadowlands-level Character Boost. Details on the different editions of the game can be found below.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is loaded with content and features that give players whole-new ways to discover and shape their characters’ destinies:
  • Explore Warcraft’s Afterlife—Discover the wonders and horrors that await in the world beyond the veil. Ride across the gleaming fields of Bastion, lose yourself among the gothic spires of Revendreth, find yourself at the crossroads of fate in the eternal city of Oribos, and much more.
  • Pledge Yourself to a Covenant—Align with one of the Shadowlands’ four Covenants, each with unique story campaigns, gameplay features, and powers that they bestow upon those who pledge themselves to their cause. Choose between Bastion’s valiant Kyrian or Revendreth’s prideful Venthyr, fight for the mighty Necrolords of Maldraxxus, or seek renewal with the wild Night Fae of Ardenweald.
  • Ascend the Tower of the Damned—The vilest souls in existence are locked away in Torghast, an otherworldly prison ruled by the terrifying entity known as the Jailer. This ever-changing, roguelike challenge is open to solo players and groups of up to five, and those who brave its trials will earn materials to commission rune-carved legendary equipment of their choosing.
  • And More—Endure the Jailer’s watchful eye in the Maw, where the challenge mounts the longer you linger; Soulbind with key characters of your chosen Covenant to share their distinct powers; choose how to restore your Covenant’s Sanctum to glory . . . Shadowlands is unlike anything ever before experienced in World of Warcraft.
