World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is releasing later in October, but it’s likely that the Shadowlands pre-patch will go live a couple of weeks ahead of its release like previous expansions. Considering the pre-patch has joined the background downloader for the live version of the game, it’s apparently beyond the beta testing phase and is ready for prime time. Newcomers to World of Warcraft will receive their own chat with the Shadowlands pre-patch, joining regular chat upon reaching level 20. The Shadowlands pre-patch will end the current season of PvP, so WoW fans grinding out honor should get where they want to as soon as possible.

The guild recruiter is a bit of content being added to World of Warcraft with the Shadowlands pre-patch, making it easier for veteran players to find a guild that’s suitable for them. Timewalking campaigns will take gamers from level 10-50 to their favorite expansions content, from Wrath of the Lich King to Battle for Azeroth, and everything in between. Gamers will no longer need exalted reputation with Allied Races to unlock them once the pre-patch goes live, however, they’ll still have to complete the necessary Achievements to unlock them.
