World of Warcraft is about to get darker … or, at rather, more shadowy.

Blizzard announced the Shadowlands expansion today during its BlizzCon opening ceremonies in Anaheim, California.

Ion Hazzikostas, World of Warcraft’s game director, was on stage to reveal the expansion.

Blizard showed a CG cinematic to announce the game, taking us back to Icecrown, the fortress of the Lich King.

Sylvanas, the banshee queen, pays the citadel a visit.

She goes to the top, to the Frozen Throne, and has a confrontation with the Lich King himself, Blovar Fordragon.. Sylvanas wins the fight and takes the Lich King’s crown, claiming it for herself.
