It’s evident that Blizzard’s upcoming expansion for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, has offerings that will deliver new framerate options and a new feature—a character creation screen.

Earlier this month, Blizzard seemingly integrated raytraced shadows and Variable Rate Shading (VRS) to the game—World of Warcraft, and also spotted on the WoW information website Icy Veins. As stated earlier, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands will also offer an enhanced character creation screen to build characters at will and two new framerate options.

These newly added framerate options have built-in the option to mark the target FPS. Note: From the description, this particular framerate is—the ideal one gamers— should play at. The reason is simple. If the framerate is below the number, dynamic systems will drop down the graphics quality to try and hit the framerate.

The other new framerate option is the ‘Spell Density.’ This helps players in controlling and managing the desired framerate. Listed below are settings players can pick from:

• Essential – Only shows vital spells. Your spells are always shown.
• Some – Reduces non-essential spells shown by around 75%.
• Half – Reduces non-essential spells by around 50%.
• Most – Reduces non-essential spells by around 25%.
• Dynamic -Reduces non-essential spells shown based on framerate. If you are above your desired framerate, everything will be shown.
• Everything – Always show all spells.

World of Warcraft players entering the fabled Shadowlands will find the realms of the dead in upheaval. Under the standard order, lost souls were delivered to a domain appropriate to the lives they led, however, all souls are being funneled into the Maw, where the most wicked are damned to suffer for eternity. As they seek to correct the cycle and uncover the extent of Sylvanas’ designs, players will forge bonds with the Covenants who hold domain over different planes within the Shadowlands:

• The steadfast Kyrian of Bastion, whose discipline and duty compels them to safeguard souls from the mortal realm as they pass into the Shadowlands.
• The mysterious Night Fae of Ardenweald, who fiercely defend the spirits of nature from those who would deprive them of rebirth.
• The cunning Venthyr of Revendreth, who feast on souls of the prideful and vain in a mysterious realm of opulence and torment.
• The warlike Necrolords of Maldraxxus, who forge the undead armies that serve as the first line of defense for the Shadowlands and honor those who seek power and glory in battle.’

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands drops later this year. However, the official release date is yet to be announced. Check back for more details as the details unfold.
