Wow, what a fail! One day before BlizzCon 2021, Blizzard managed to leak their own press kit and spoil the upcoming announcement for World of Warcraft Shadowlands and its new content update Chains of Dominion.

Everywhere I go, leaks always know... These days, nothing seems safe from being leaked. Not even from their own company! Blizzard just leaked their own update for World of Warcraft Shadowlands. What do you think, how many employees will get fired for that? At least one, right? Anyway, here's everything we know about Chains of Dominion now, thanks to the leak.

WoW Shadowlands Leak: Chains of Dominion

The traitorous Sire Denathrius has been defeated . . . but the power of the Maw still grows. In Chains of Domination, the upcoming first major content update for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, players will delve into new depths of the Jailer’s hopeless domain, seeking to understand the true nature of his malignant plans. Backed by the renewed might of the four Covenants, the champions of the Horde and the Alliance will take the fight for the Shadowlands to the seat of the Jailer’s power. But the Banished One has a terrible new champion in his service—a cruel instrument of despair conscripted by Sylvanas Windrunner, capable of instilling dread into the hearts of Azeroth’s heroes like no creature of the Shadowlands.

The new content update for Shadowlands is ready to go, and so are we!

New Region: Korthia

The Jailer is searching for the key to fulfill his twisted designs—and he has pulled a fragment of a long-lost domain into the Maw itself to find it. Seek answers in ancient Korthia, the City of Secrets, and engage in new quests and outdoor activities.

Sounds fun, count me in! At least if "outdoor activities" doesn't refer to boring fetch quests like harvesting flowers or something.

New Story: The Covenants Strike Back

With the strength of the kyrian, night fae, necrolords, and venthyr restored, embark on a campaign to unite the four covenants—and together, launch an assault against the Jailer in his home territory.

Mysterious and dangerous. Exactly my type!

New Raid: Sanctum of Domination

Brave treacherous, unexplored reaches of Torghast in a new 10-boss raid: the Sanctum of Domination. Encounter the true Eye of the Jailer, turn the tide against the Tarragrue, and come face-to-face with the Banshee Queen herself in a fateful confrontation.

New Dungeon: Tazavesh, The Veiled Market

Gather your party and discover exotic wares and strange creatures in an eight-boss Mythic mega-dungeon set in a bazaar of the mysterious Brokers, and culminating in a high-stakes heist to steal powerful artifacts from Azeroth.

Oh my God, this looks amazing! I can't wait to explore this dungeon. Anyone want to party up with me?

Flying Mounts!

Gear up for Shadowlands Raid, Dungeon, and PvP Season 2, with a seasonal Mythic Keystone dungeon affix themed around the Jailer’s power; don new Covenant cosmetic armor sets that any class can wear; expand the powers of your Soulbinds and Conduits; add new mounts and pets to your menagerie; Unlock flying in the Covenants’ four domains; and much more.

Did I just read... flying mounts? Holy cow, look at those! Can't have too many of those, if you ask me.

This leak got us seriously hyped for the new update. Still, it's kinda hilarious to see this happen to a huge company like Blizzard. Remember kids, nobody is safe from the big bad leak!
