Blizzard Announced Shadowlands Beta Coming Soon
During a recent World of Warcraft livestream, Blizzard announced an upcoming beta for the latest expansion to the MMO, Shadowlands. The expansion has been in alpha for a few months, but more WoW fans will be able to get their hands on the new content when the beta comes out next week. In order to be accepted into the beta, gamers will have to opt into it through their Battle.net account. Invites will be rolled out from next week until the end of summer. World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is coming out for PC and Mac towards the end of the year, with Battle For Azeroth coming to a close.
During the recent livestream, Blizzard gave World of Warcraft fans an idea of what to expect from the beta with a roadmap which includes Castle Nathria raid testing, legendary rune crafting, covenant campaigns, PvP testing and more. While Blizzard will still be ironing out some kinks with the Shadowlands beta, it will be feature-complete, with WoW gamers able to level their way to the new level cap of 60. The Shadowlands content included in the beta has a first-look at endgame systems with sanctums, covenants, soul binds and more.
The invites for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands’ beta will be rolling out throughout summer, so if you aren’t able to access it right away, be patient and make sure you’ve opted in to beta testing. Alongside the beta news, the livestream showed off the Theater of War dungeon, Covenant sanctums, minigame activities which will be different for each covenant, the collectors edition of Shadowlands which includes an art book, pins, a soundtrack and a mouse pad. More details about Shadowlands will be unveiled as the Summer continues according to Blizzard.
