Blizzard provided a look at some of the newest content in development for World of Warcraft expansion Shadowlands during a live stream today.
The stream was hosted by World of Warcraft executive producer John Hight and game director Ion Hazzikostas.
Previously scheduled to air on June 9 but postponed in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, today’s stream was used to announce that Shadowlands will enter beta next week ahead of a fall 2020 release.
Blizzard also revealed a limited Shadowlands Collector’s Edition which includes an art book, mouse pad, soundtrack and in-game content.
According to the official announcement: “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 threatens to upset the cosmic balance between life and death.”
Key features of the expansion include five fresh zones to explore and the introduction of a new levelling system.
Blizzard cancelled BlizzCon 2020 in May due to challenges caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
