Yesterday during Gamescom Opening Night Live, Blizzard announced the release date for World of Warcraft’s next expansion. Following some extra development time over this summer, the Shadowlands expansion is nearing its launch, with a date now set for the 27th of October.
To accompany the release date announcement, Blizzard also unveiled a new trailer for Shadowlands, which you can watch below:
A brief story tease for the expansion can be found in the description: “Beyond Azeroth’s shattered sky, a realm of infinite afterlives awaits: the Shadowlands, where mortal souls go to reckon with their pasts, discover new purpose . . . or suffer an eternity of torment.”
As part of this expansion, WoW will be getting ray-traced shadows, new loot and gear, faction reputation, new abilities etc. It will also be getting changes to the maximum character level and even a completely overhauled new player experience for those jumping into the MMO for the first time, or simply starting a new character from scratch.
KitGuru Says: World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is just two months away. Will any of you be returning for the latest expansion?
