The dead speak! Or they will be in World of Warcraft’s upcoming expansion.
The MMORPG that won’t stay dead will be releasing the Shadowlands expansion, which is basically the Alliance and Horde folks dealing with the afterlife and some machinery of souls, later this year on 24rd November 6am GMT+8. Because when your 2004 MMORPG is tapped out of story ideas, it’s eventually going the afterlife route that’s pretty common in online RPG titles.

Blizzard has also released a pre-patch in lieu of this, which allows players to re-customize their characters with new options and experience the Chromie Time leveling system. And once Shadowlands is launched, the first raid of Castle Nathria will be available on 8th December.
If you can’t wait, there’s going to be a 10th November in-game event called Scourge Invasions. Acting as a prelude to Shadowlands, players will be killing zombies and undead hordes for two weeks leading up to the expansion.
