Shadowlands Expansion Announced for World of Warcraft

Blizzard Entertainment have announced a new expansion for World of Warcraft at BlizzCon 2019, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands.

Taking place in the afterlife of the warcraft universe, players will meet long departed friends and foes, along with attempting to stop Sylvanas, after she has shattered the barrier between life and death.

While details are scant right now, it seems players are able to join one of several “Covenants”, and are able to earn gear through it. Details will come later in BlizzCon 2019.

You can find the full run-down below:


The veil between life and death is no more.

With a single act of destruction, Sylvanas Windrunner has ripped open the way to the afterlife. Azeroth’s staunchest defenders have been dragged into all-consuming darkness. An ancient force of death threatens to break its bonds and unravel reality.

Hidden realms of wonder and horror await any who would pass to the other side. The Shadowlands is home to an entire realm of the departed; it is a world between worlds whose delicate balance preserves life and death itself.

As one of Azeroth’s greatest champions, you have been granted the power to cross over in body and soul. Now you must investigate a conspiracy to unmake the cosmos, and help Warcraft legends journey back… or fulfill their ultimate destiny.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands will launch in 2020, and is availble for pre-order now.

World of Warcraft is available now on Windows PC and Mac OS.
