New World of Warcraft expansion Shadowlands announced

WOW!

World of Warcraft's eighth expansion has been announced by Blizzard during the company's BlizzCon 2019 Opening Ceremony. It's called Shadowlands and it'll launch in 2020.

A typically snazzy cinematic saw Sylvanus crack open the sky and create a portal to the Shadowlands - the afterlife for the Warcraft universe. It's here the new chapter of WOW's story will be set.

Battle for Azeroth, WOW's seventh expansion, launched back in August 2018.
