Remember that alleged World of Warcraft: Shadowlands expansion leak back in July? This one is picking up steam, as MMO Champion posted a screenshot from 4chan from an alleged cinematic of this afterlife-themed pack. The screenshot in question shows a number of ghostly ships coming to dock, with a few previously deceased characters returning as spirits.
According to the source on this, Shadowlands “isn’t all dark and gloomy” but rather colorful and even psychedelic with one area taking place in a pocket universe.
Here’s the supposed leaked storyline leading up to this expansion, if you don’t mind spoilers and possible (likely?) fabrication: Sylvanas is going to attack Thunder Bluff as a feint for her real objective, which is a full-scale invasion of Stormwind. This fight will take place as a 10-boss raid and 40-player battleground in Patch 8.3. Pretty much all major factional leaders will die during this battle — including characters — and everyone will wake up in the Shadowlands. Gnomes are going to come up with a device to let players leave and enter the Shadowlands as they fight for the future of the planet against the Old Gods.
