Blizzard Entertainment has finally announced the release date of the 4th expansion of World of Warcraft® entitled Mists of Pandaria™. Mark your calendars! The grand date is Tuesday, 25th of September 2012!
For the first time ever (officially that is), we will be able to see and interact with the long-lost continent of Pandaria, the fabled secret kingdom of the Panda race that withdrew from the world after the Kaldorei misused and abused and played with magic (especially the Well of Eternity). Seeing that it will spell trouble, the Pandarens disappeared.
World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria™,will be available for U$79.99 for the North American box, and £29.99 for the European box set. A Digital Deluxe edition is also available for those who prefer to get into the game and avoid the hassles of rushing and fighting your way to get your copy. This edition includes the in-game bonuses that is part of the Collector’s Edition and only costs U$59.99 or £39.99. Additionally, players who bought the standard edition have the option to upgrade to the Digital Deluxe Edition for an additional U$20.00 or £10.00.
“Mists of Pandaria” contains the biggest variety of new content we’ve ever created for a World of Warcraft expansion, with features that will appeal to new players, veterans, and everyone in between,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We’ve received a lot of great feedback from players during our most extensive beta test yet, and we hope they enjoy exploring everything Pandaria has to offer when the expansion comes out in September.”
