World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is the eighth expansion for the popular 2004 MMORPG developed by Blizzard Entertainment, the creators of the base game, as well as such titles as Overwatch, Hearthstone, Starcraft and the Diablo series.
The story of the expansion begins when Sylvanas wins the battle against Lich King and then destroys the barrier that separates Azeroth and The Shadowlands.
The realm's greatest heroes embark on an expedition to the other side of the world, to the title Shadowlands, to discover the secrets of a conspiracy that may destroy all existence, as well as save the souls of the legends of the Warcraft universe, so that they can fulfill their destiny.
Shadowlands is a typical expansion. The add-on does not fundamentally change the gameplay mechanics of World of Warcraft, focusing on expanding the game's content.
The biggest attraction of the expansion is the possibility to visit the Shadowlands. The expansion enriches the game with four new exploration zones (Revendreth, Ardenweald, Maldrauxxus, Bastion), with unique dungeons and raids. There add-on also introduces numerous new items.
In the Shadowlands we can also find four groups taking care of the dead. Players can ally with one of them under Covenants, so that they can gain access to new powers.
An additional attraction is the condemned tower in Shadowlands, known as Torghast. It is a big dungeon, whose architecture is constantly changing, so we can explore it many times, each time encountering fresh challenges.
World of Warcraft: Shadowlands also abolishes the limitations of the Death Knight class and now all races can become Death Knights.
