World of Warcraft: Shadowlands – the eighth expansion pack for World of Warcraft – has still yet to be released, but meanwhile World of Warcraft players now have the Shadowlands Pre-Patch to keep themselves occupied until then.
After its delay, which Blizzard announced at the beginning of this month, we don’t know when the actual Shadowlands patch will be making its much-anticipated appearance. It’s supposedly going to do so sometime before the end of the year, though.
The Shadowlands is being described as “the resting place for every mortal soul – virtuous or vile – that has ever lived,” which comprises both planes of torment and imprisonment, as well as rebirth and eternal reward. The full expansion pack will introduce new features and character customization, a new player hub, five new zones – Bastion, Ardenweald, Maldraxxus, Revendreth, and The Maw – and a bunch more.
In the meantime, though, the Shadowlands Pre-Patch is certainly nothing to shrug off either. This generous content upgrade already introduces a bunch of the system changes due to come on board in the full patch.
The major changes in the Pre-Patch include the following:
- A character level cap of 50, ahead of the level-60 cap on the way in the full Shadowlands patch.
- Adjustments to items and stats to accompany the new level caps.
- A huge selection of new character customization options for all of game’s races.
- Exile’s Reach – a complete overhaul of the game’s player experience which has its very own story and introduces players to the game’s core elements.

WoW players are no doubt ready to welcome The Shadowlands expansion pack with open arms after having endured the disappointment delivered by the previous one, Battle for Azeroth. Hopefully, the level of polish which Blizzard is adamant about implementing before Shadowlands’ release will pay off.
