The much-awaited Word of Warcraft Shadowlands expansion is set to release in October 2020, but the expansion’s pre-patch should be arriving any time now. The pre-patch will pack the level squish, new character customization options, and new storylines that pave the path for the Shadowlands storyline.
Starting earlier this week, Blizzard has been pushing the pre-patch. Players might notice a 20 GB update downloading in the background, which happens to be the pre-patch. A number of players have already received warning emails with regards to the lack of space on their memory that’s obstructing the download.
However, the content is still not accessible at the moment. The pre-patch usually debuts about a month before the full patch. As the Shaowlands pack is set to release on October 26, the pre-patch should be available around September 26. As soon as the pre-patch is available, the players of WoW will be able to access the new content almost immediately, since all the content is downloaded beforehand.
World of Warcraft is available now for PC. As per the latest updates, World of Warcraft Shadowlands releases on October 26 for PC.
The official Shadowlands description adds: “Upon entering the Shadowlands, Azeroth’s champions will encounter an otherworld in disarray. Virtuous souls are being wrongfully cast into the eternal darkness of the Maw, while the Covenants—powerful factions who hold dominion over the afterlife’s disparate realms—face ruin and strife as the flow of the Shadowlands’ essential anima mysteriously dwindles.
You’ll gain access to your Covenant’s Sanctum, where you’ll accept unique quests, undertake a sprawling covenant campaign, and call upon your allies to embark on important missions. You‘ll also earn unique abilities based on your Covenant and class, acquire a unique mount and visual appearance, and forge bonds with powerful souls, drawing on their essence to further customize your skills.”
