Those within the World of Warcraft community have already been pondering what the next expansion for the MMORPG is, whether it’s something like Shadowlands that we’ve touched on a couple of times or whatever Age of Darkness is supposed to be. Or maybe, as Eliot wrote in his WoW Factor last week, it’s a new spin on something relating to Wrath of the Lich King. Well, now there’s another supposed leak, and if it’s a con, it’s easily the most convincing yet.
An image posted on the WoW subreddit appears to be from an ad selling a fine art print of Shadowlands featuring a Bolvar Fordragon that has fully succumbed to the throes of the Helm of Domination and become the next Lich King, complete with a new hammer that’s all skull-ified because that’s just how Death Knights roll.
Naturally, this should all be taken with your favorite salt grains, but it certainly does seem accurate, and it even furthers our own pondering about the next expansion; you can read about that (and just why a sequel to Wrath is probably not a great idea) in last week’s WoW Factor.
