Blizzard revealed this morning that after being delayed, they will now release World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands on November 23rd. The latest expansion was originally scheduled for release in late October, but according to the devs, they needed to delay the game to "allow more time for fine-tuning and polish based on feedback from the ongoing beta test". It was a move that frustrated a lot of people, especially in a year where there have been game delays across the board. Along with the news and a new trailer, the company revealed two more content updates to the game that will be coming this year. You can read all about them below.

As players explore this otherworldly frontier, they'll discover the fates of Warcraft legends, forge a bond with one of four Covenants who rule over the Shadowlands' disparate domains, and ultimately confront a threat shrouded in darkness with designs to unmake the cosmos.
