Blizzard's latest major addition to their hit fantasy MMO World of Warcraft now has a release date. The company announced today that the fourth commercial expansion pack for the game, Mists of Pandaria, will be released on September 25th.

In a post on the game's official website, Blizzard announced that it is now taking pre-sale orders for the two digital editions of Mists of Pandaria. The regular version will cost $39.99 but the Digital Deluxe edition will cost $59.99. In addition to the game itself, the Digital Deluxe edition of Mists of Pandaria gets some exclusive in-game items, such as a Imperial Quilen mount, a Diablo III banner sigil and accent, and two StarCraft II portraits.

Blizzard will also release a retail Collector's Edition of Mists of Pandaria for $79.99. It will contain all of the in-game exclusives found in the Digital Deluxe version, plus real world extras such as a 208-page art book, a CD soundtrack of the expansion pack's music, a DVD/Blu-Ray set with behind-the-scenes info, and a mouse pad.

Can't go on much longer after this, can it? o.o

With 10million+ subscribers, they're on the verge of bankruptcy while you're almost making it to #1 on Forbes list of the mentally advanced.

Has Blizzard jumped the shark with kung-fu pandas? What's next, land sharks with frickin' laser beams on their heads? lulz

Because cows and space ghosts(draenei) wielding shields and casting bolts is very normal as it is.

Your comment fails, blizzard had Pandas in Warcraft3. So if you ask me i think the movie kung-fu panda was stolen from blizzard.

Yes, they appeared in WC3...as an April Fool's joke.

After the immense fail that is Diablo 3, and the fact that WoW has lost its edge and its all burnt out players wanting something new that ISNT WoW...ill pass. WoW used tobe fun, now its just painful to even think about due to how repetitive and boring it became.

I'm not sure I'll even get it. Diablo III was such a terrible disappointment and now they are adding Pandas and Pokemon battles to WoW, what has happened? This just isn't the same company we used to know.

The company/game was never exactly cool though, was it.

Really? Warcraft I, II and III and Diablo I and II weren't awesome? That's news to me, I even loved The Lost Vikings. Of course the first two Diablo games were not made by Blizzard but by Condor (Blizzard North). As for WoW I enjoyed it years ago but they won't stop dumbing it down; without any challenge it's just a boring grind now.

Finally a release date, can't wait!. Hopefully this will be more fun than the borefest that is/was Cataclysm.

Lol, it has been boring far longer than that.

Cataclysm just kept bring back old things is probably why. 4.1 for example is where I quit playing. Then they announced Ragnaros' return which didn't interest me any, then the yawnfest as Deathwing's fight came about, by which point much of my guild had already stopped playing altogether...

You only represent yourself and your own personal opinion, well you don't if you're 13 years of age or below.

Wrath of the Lich King got nothing but positive feedback by the general, so does the Burning Crusade(when I started) and Classic for that matter. The statistics are clear, subscriptions only started to go downhill in Cataclysm for obvious reasons.

Pandarific. Ill probably play this until Aug 28th when GW2 hits lol

As above you have your dates wrong.

I won't be buying this because I will be playing GW2 instead. Maybe in the future but for now I stopped playing as paying subs for a game I only get a few hours on is a waste of money. As with GW1 no subs means I don't have that problem.
The only time I go onto wow now is to play my free level 20 char. Sad I know...

I think people are being a little harsh or maybe they just hold Blizzard to this unobtainable high standard. I'll probably get Mists of Pandaria and at least level my guys up to level 90 and play through the 5-man dungeon content. It will amuse me for about a month, and then I'll get bored and move on. I don't see WoW ever capturing my interest like it did 6 years ago, but I do enjoy playing through the new content when they bring it.

Diablo 3 - I bet most of you people saying it was a complete and utter failure STILL put more hours into than you do most games that you spend $60 for. They made some bad design decisions, don't get me wrong, but it isn't the complete and utter piece of **** you are making it out to be...stop being so dramatic.

Its weird how sudden bash blizzard is kind of cool. WoW was years ahead of competition and probably will have at least one more xpac.

Now its GW2, 6 months ago was SWTOR, we will see 6 months from now.
