World of Warcraft

The Old God N’Zoth has been unleashed from his titan wrought prison, and an ancient corruption has taken root across Azeroth, turning friends into foes and trapping warriors’ minds in nightmare visions of a hopeless future. As despair and madness consume the land, the heroes of the Horde and the Alliance will need to fight for their sanity—and the fate of their wounded world in this content update.  

ShadowLands is live. Sylvanas and the Jailer in together, to bridge the world of the dead with Azeroth.
