UPDATE June 18: WoW: Shadowlands Update 9.1 release date revealed
When World of Warcraft: Shadowlands' Update 9.1 was announced earlier this year during BlizzConline, Blizzard shared how it would build upon the expansion's foundations but did not mention any release date or at least a broader window when we might expect it.
Called Chains of Domination, it brings about the expected new raid and dungeon, while expanding upon WoW: Shadowlands' Covenants core feature. The Maw is growing and will be traversable via mounts, our allies in the afterlife gain renewed strength, and, courtesy of a blue post on the game's forums, we now know when it will land on the PTR.
"In about 2 weeks, we will have Chains of Domination available for the community on the PTR. Also, raid testing details will be posted a week or so after the PTR is online," Community Manager Bornakk said on March 30.
WoW: Shadowlands Update 9.1's PTR release date occurred on April 13, after which players could dig their teeth into its new features and test upcoming content.
Since PTR cycles usually last around 2.5 to 3 months, we were looking at a World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Update 9.1 release date set towards the end of June or early July. We predicted that it would go live on June 29, and Blizzard has since confirmed that this will, indeed, be the case.
Expected Release Date
- WoW: Shadowlands Update 9.1 Release Date: June 29 (US)/June 30 (EU)
While, Update 9.0.5 did release in early March, albeit without any significant content additions, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands' Chains of Domination Update 9.1 comes after one of the longer content gaps in the MMORPGs history, a whole 245 days after its launch. Here's hoping it will be as good as it sounds.
