The pre-patch was originally supposed to come with a pre-expansion event called Death Rising. Here players have to defend the world from the undead.
In the trailer for the new expansion, Sylvanas defeated the Lich King and took the helm of domination that controls the dead. Without someone to control the Scourge, they would undoubtedly ravage the world.
However, Blizzard has decided to postpone this event as well until a specific date for the launch of the new expansion is released.
What to expect in the pre-patch
Blizzard had previously released the patch notes for the Shadowlands Pre-patch. One of the most noticeable changes in the game would be a level squish, the first time the game has done this.
This level squish has a maximum level cap of 60. This means that players will reach the maximum level in BFA is squeezed to level 50 in the new expansion.
