The so-called Shadowlands of the next WoW expansion will include six main zones - Bastion, Maldraxxus, Ardenwald, Revendreth, the Maw, and the metropolis Oribos. Oribos in the center will function as a player gathering point, similar to Shattrath in Burning Crusade or Dalaran in Wrath of the Lich King and Legion. There are four new dungeons to level, four more at the new max level, and a new raid. In addition, a new "endless dungeon" called Torghast, Tower of the Damned, is introduced for both single and group play.

The introductory plot in brief: After Sylvanas Windrunner is deposed as Warchief of the Horde and N'Zoth is defeated in the Battle for Azeroth, she heads to Icecrown Citadel in Scourge-ridden Northrend and confronts the reigning Lich King, Bolvar Fordragon. She takes the Helm of Dominance from him and breaks it, tearing the veil between realities. A portal to the Shadowlands, the afterlife in the Warcraft universe, opens. However, the Shadowlands have not been functioning properly lately, because the Maw, a place in the afterlife reserved for the most sinful of souls, now absorbs all souls. Your task will be to unravel the dark secret.

In the following gallery we show you the final beta version of the six zones on great pictures. Have fun!
