‘World of Warcraft: Shadowlands’ Cinematic Trailer: That Power Will Be Your Prison!

Even if they don’t make me super horny like they used to, I’m always excited by the announcement of a new World of Warcraft expansion. Shadowlands, baby!


BlizzCon 2019 brought a host of announcements for Blizzard games, including the long-running fantasy MMO World of Warcraft. Blizzard showed off a CGI cinematic for the next expansion, Shadowlands, and we got to see Bolvar Fordragon take center stage … along with Sylvanas Windrunner.

The World of Warcraft lore has been hinting that we would be heading to the Shadowlands for quite some time now. A recent leak from the Blizzard Gear store lent further credibility to the speculation, but there was lots of in-game evidence as well. The former Horde Warchief, Vol’jin is in a state between life and death, and there was a long questline investigating who whispered in his ear as he died. Sylvanas Windrunner, his successor, was also very interested in death. Bolvar’s been very active — and up to no good — since Legion, so it’ll be interesting to see how this shakes out.
