Blizzard has today revealed the release date for the new expansion for World of Warcraft, Mists of Pandaria. Details on the various collector’s edition have been made available which will be available with the regular versions. Mists of Pandaria will be released on the 25th September for the PC and Mac, and will cost around £29.99 whether from shops or via digital download.
From eu.blizzard.com: “During the pre-purchase process, you’ll have the option to grab either the Mists of Pandaria Standard Edition for €34.99/£29.99 or the all-new Digital Deluxe edition for €49.99/£39.99 — or, if you snag the standard edition now and decide you want to upgrade to Digital Deluxe later, you’ll have the opportunity to do so for an additional €15/£10.”
“The Digital Deluxe edition includes a full digital copy of the expansion, as well as a selection of Pandaria-inspired in-game content for World of Warcraft, Diablo III, and StarCraft II. If you’re looking for even more plunder, a special Mists of Pandaria Collector’s Edition with additional bonus items will also be available exclusively at select retail locations for a suggested retail price of €69.99/£59.99.”

I though the World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria would be out around October time so it coming out early than that is even better I guess? I will likely buy it sometime around its release date. I have two level 85 characters after all.
