Blizzard has accidentally released its press kits for BlizzCon 2021, or BlizzCon Online, ahead of the digital event. According to the leak, which is currently unverified, the content is specific to the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands and World of Warcraft: Classic games, so if you want to avoid spoilers until the official announcement then avoid the below information dump.
No confirmed information has been leaked regarding Blizzard's other titles, so we're keeping our fingers crossed that content for Diablo, Overwatch, and more to look forward to during the live streamed event.

Our first major content patch for the Shadowlands expansion has been confirmed. 'Chains of Domination' will provide a plethora of new features, from additional raid and dungeon content to new cosmetic armor sets. You may also be glad to know that this content upgrade will finally allow you to fly your mounts through the skies of the shadowlands along with some artwork that all but confirms Anduin's reappearance in the series
A new area is being introduced – the ancient 'City of Secrets' Korthia, which promises to provide new quests and activities. New content is also coming for your covenants, with a united front across the kyrian, night fae, necrolords, and venthyr to take the fight directly to the Jailer.
A new eight boss mythic mega-dungeon known as Tazavesh, the Veiled Market Gather is being introduced alongside an expansion to Torghast in the form of a new raid called the Sanctum of Domination that will allegedly pit you against the nefarious Sylvanas Windrunner herself.
Season 2 for Shadowlands Raid, Dungeon, and PvP is set to begin, as well as new covenant cosmetic armor sets, Soulbinds and Conduits, mounts and pets being introduced. The leaked features list is truly expansive and should keep anyone exploring the afterlife realms busy until the next big content drop. Did we mention you can finally unlock your flying mounts?
World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic
Speculation for the release of World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic has been present on the internet for some time, but this leaked press kit finally confirms that it'll be coming to PC once again. Anyone who subscribes to the standard version of World of Warcraft can also play WoW: Classic without paying an additional subscription, meaning you can enjoy the upcoming Burning Crusade Classic at no additional cost.
Prior to Burning Crusade Classic’s release, WoW Classic players can decide whether to advance each of their characters to the Burning Crusade era with the rest of their realm, or to continue playing the original WoW Classic content on new Classic Era servers. It isn't clear if this means you can change your choice after you have made the decision to remain in vanilla or jump into the new content. You can also now play as a Blood Elf or Draenei, should you choose to play the Burning Crusade expansion.
