Blizzard Entertainment recently conducted the live stream where World of Warcraft Executive Producer John Hight discussed the details of the upcoming expansion, Shadowlands. Game Director Ion Hazzikostas also joined the live stream titled ‘Shadowlands Developer Update’ and dropped the release date of next big expansion.
World of Warcraft launched originally in 2004 and is one of the few longest-running massively multiplayer online games. Blizzard opted to come up with expansions rather than sequels for the popular role-playing game. While only seven expansions—after 16 years of release—looks a bit lazy, fans are still equally hyped for the game as they were back in time.
The video game company announced that the eighth expansion is scheduled for the 2020 release date. However, there hasn’t been news regarding the exact release date of the new expansion. The epic addition will reportedly open the gates of the realm of the dead. The new expansion has become a need for modern time players because several studios have been developing next-gen games with mind-blowing graphics.
The recent expansion or the seventh expansion was Battle for Azeroth. Battle for Azeroth debuted for MMORPG on August 14, 2018. The seventh expansion added a couple of new features, including four allied races, dungeons, raids, Zandalar, and the Kul Tiras continents. The president of Blizzard Entertainment already announced that the new expansion would release in November 2020. However, the coronavirus pandemic hit the world, and we didn’t hear anything from the developer.
Shadowlands would be enormous…
Now, in the recent live stream, Executive producer John Hight confirmed that they are sticking with a similar plan. He promised that the new expansion would release in the same time frame. Blizzard previously announced the devs update Livestream would take place in June, but they had to postpone out of respect to Black Lives Matter protest. The devs will also release a feature-complete Beta. The Beta version will be available as early as next week.
Shadowlands will feature level squish for the first time in World of Warcraft MMORPG history. The races that couldn’t access the Death Knight class in previous expansions will be able to access now. Shadowlands will be the greatest expansion the game had had in years. So, if you don’t want to miss the new gaming experience, pre-order World of Warcraft: Shadowlands here.
