Now Playing: World of Warcraft Shadowlands Developer Update Livestream

You can watch it on the World of Warcraft Twitch and YouTube channels. GameSpot will also carry the stream as part of our Play For All event, and you'll be able to watch it in this post. Hight and Hazzikostas will give the presentation from their homes due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Shadowlands is the eighth expansion for WoW, and it is scheduled for release in 2020. As its name suggests, the expansion takes players to the world of the dead. Unlike all the previous expansions, Shadowlands actually reduces the level cap to 60, down from 120, as part of a unique twist. Unlike some other MMOs, World of Warcraft never made the jump to consoles. However, the game is getting controller support with the Shadowlands expansion.

Blizzard typically makes more World of Warcraft announcements during BlizzCon each year, but 2020's show has been canceled due to the pandemic. Blizzard is instead looking to host a virtual BlizzCon in early 2021. The event will likely include new details on games like Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4.
