World of Warcraft concept artwork for the zone in Eternity's End

[Update #2]: World of Warcraft: Shadowlands' final major Update 9.2 - Eternity's End has now been unleashed!

[Update]: Blizzard has now detailed all of the changes and additions coming in with Patch 9.2!

Given how long we had to wait for Patch 9.1 - Chains of Domination, I fully expected the seemingly final content Patch 9.2 - Eternity's End to arrive with a massive delay as well. However, in a surprising announcement Blizzard has just revealed that Eternity's End will be launching with next week's server reset, on February 22nd or 23rd depending on your region.

Once it arrives, Eternity's End will bring with it Zareth Mortis as a brand new zone to explore, a chunky new raid with 11 bosses to tackle, as well as a brand new Torghast wing to toy around with. You can also expect to see a new progression system that lets you slowly unravel the language of the First Ones, the ability to equip two legendary items at once, the return of the much-beloved tier sets, and naturally, a whole host of new pets, mounts and other cosmetic items to collect.

If you're curious what all of this looks like in-game, as well as what Blizzard is even going for with the story, you'll find your answers in the original developer preview for the update. Have a peek:

While this will only be coming with Patch 9.2.5 at some point in the future, it's also worth mentioning that Blizzard is currently working on adding cross-faction dungeons, raids and rated PvP! The system will have some unfortunate drawbacks that are likely going to take a while to fully remove, things like the inability to join cross-realm guilds, but even with those flaws I still expect this to be the best new addition to World of Warcraft in years!

Once Eternity's End lands onto the live servers, or we get more information about Patch 9.2.5, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can read a few more tidbits about the update over at the World of Warcraft website.
