Shadowlands Expansion Coming in 2020

After the events of Wrath of the Lich King, former Alliance Regent Bolvar Fordragon took the mantle of the Lich King in secret.

What is World of Warcraft: Shadowlands? As you would expect, the new expansion contains new dungeons, raids, and zones.

During BlizzCon 2019, the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion was announced. The realm is the home of the power for Death Knights and numerous spirits in the world of Azeroth.

The steadfast Kyrian of Bastion, whose discipline and duty compels them to safeguard souls from the mortal realm as they pass into the Shadowlands. The expansion has been "built around choice" according to Blizzard, and players will have to choose a Covenant to join within the Shadowlands.

This announcement comes at a tumultuous time for both World of Warcraft and Blizzard on the whole.

The warlike Necrolords of Maldraxxus, who forge the undead armies that serve as the first line of defense for the Shadowlands and honor those who seek power and glory in battle.

There's also three new zones to explore: Ardenweald, Maldraxxus, and Bastion. By the end of the trailer, Sylvanas destroys the Lich King's helmet and opens a rift between the world of the living and the Shadowlands, which is effectively the afterlife for characters in the Warcraft universe. The expansion is set to launch sometime in 2020.

Players will be able to go to the Shadowlands and meet fallen heroes and villains, continuing the story that Blizzard has been telling since the previous expansion. A physical Collector's Edition of the game will be revealed at a later date.
