World of Warcraft: Shadowlands — which was announced at BlizzCon 2019 — will be released on October 26, 2020, Blizzard officially revealed during Geoff Keighley's gamescom: Opening Night Live digital show.
To cerebrate the announcement of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands' release date, Blizzard also shared two action-packed trailers: one serving as an overview of the DLC's core features, and the other focusing solely on the story of Uther the Lightbringer, one of the rulers of the four new zones in the titular Shadowlands.
The Uther-focused video shines a new light on his post-Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne fate. In the upcoming expansion, his "service is not done. When he passes into the afterlife, Devos – a Paragon of Bastion – takes Uther under her wing, only to learn that some [...] wounds run deeper than she could imagine."
Those who would like to learn more about the other Covenants should keep an eye on the game's YouTube channel, as the Shadowlands Afterlives: Maldraxxus animated short will arrive on September 3, Shadowlands Afterlives: Ardenweald on September 10, and finally Shadowlands Afterlives: Revendreth on September 17.
Be sure to take a look at Shadowlands' release date trailer and Terran Gregory's animated short down below:
Sylvanas Windrunner, fallen leader of the Horde, has pierced the veil between Azeroth and the realm of the dead, setting in motion a series of events that threaten to upset the cosmic balance between life and death. Azeroth’s heroes will confront the wonders and horrors of the afterlife as they deal with the consequences of Sylvanas’ actions.
World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is coming to PC on October 26, 2020.
