Last year at BlizzCon 2019, Blizzard announced the next expansion for the World of Warcraft MMORPG in the form of Shadowlands. This essentially picks up where the previous expansion, Battle of Azeroth, left off and introduces a bunch of new zones, new raids, dungeons, and of course a new end boss in the form of the Jailer.
The game did not have a release date back then, but for those who are interested, Shadowlands will be officially going live on the 26th of October (or 27th, depending on where you live). Blizzard has shared the various times that the game’s servers will be going live, so you can check it out below to see when you’ll be able to start playing the game.
Shadowlands will be the eighth expansion to Blizzard’s World of Warcraft MMORPG, which is actually really impressive given that World of Warcraft is still one of the more active MMOs today, despite the game being rather old and with there being a lot more options to choose from these days.

Gamers who want to get their hands on the game might want to take note that there are three versions that you can choose: the base version priced at $40, the Heroic Edition priced at $60, and the Epic Edition priced at $80. Each version has its own perks, but the base version is rather interesting as it makes Shadowlands one of the cheapest World of Warcraft expansions to date.
