The one thing that basically everyone playing World of Warcraft wants to know right now is when the prepatch for Shadowlands will arrive. Thus, it makes perfect sense that the latest update from Blizzard is lacking exactly that information. Instead, players will just have to guess that “soon” means “next week or the week after,” since most of the information is focused on what will actually change with the prepatch rather than giving an actual date.
Players can rest assured that “soon” in this case will be slightly sooner than the promised BlizzConline event happening in February of 2021, which has just been announced. Clearly, there’s a lot of planning still being done on Blizzard’s end, but they’re already planning ways to keep the community spotlight of the event active with cosplay competitions and art showcases. If you’ve been keenly feeling the lack of a proper BlizzCon this year… well, the online event isn’t that far away, right?
📢 BlizzConline is set to take place February 19-20, 2021!
There's lots of planning left to do, but we wanted to provide an early heads-up on how you can take part in the online festivities! 🎉
Check out the blog for more details on the fun! 👀
