Will I be able to play Shadowlands if I pre-order Dragonflight?

Just wanted to know if I could play Shadowlands if I pre-order the Dragonflight expansion or if I have to buy Shadowlands in order to play retail now.

If you don’t have the Shadowlands expansion and want to experience that content now, you currently need to purchase it.

It is currently on sale.

The previous expansion is usually added to the base game around the time of the next expansion’s launch, but I don’t have any specifics on that yet.


Blizzard also released a bundle that includes both SL and DF.
Comes with 60 days of game time with the epic edition and both a level 50 and a level 60 boost.
