Mists of Pandaria to be Released on September 25

World of Warcraft®: Mists of Pandaria™ is launching on September 25, 2012 and you can be ready to play when the servers go live by pre-purchasing the game digitally. Plus, for the first time ever, players will have the option to upgrade a pre-purchase to the all-new Digital Deluxe Edition which comes with all of the in-game items from the retail Collector’s Edition, including a World of Warcraft pet and mount, banner sigil and accent for Diablo® III, and Battle.net® portraits for StarCraft® II.

Beginning September 25, 2012, World of Warcraft players around the world will be able to set sail for the long-lost continent of Pandaria, where they’ll explore forgotten dungeons, vanquish risen evils, and play their part in the Horde-Alliance conflict as it reaches a critical breaking point.

Whether you plan to level your existing character to 90 or start fresh with a new pandaren monk, it’s never too early to begin preparing for your adventure. Simply log in to your Battle.net® account, and then pre-purchase Mists of Pandaria. You’ll then be flagged to automatically download the expansion content prior to release so you’ll be ready to go when the game launches.

During the pre-purchase process, you’ll have the option to grab either the Mists of Pandaria Standard Edition for $39.99 USD or the all-new Digital Deluxe edition for $59.99 USD -- 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 $20.

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 $79.99 USD.


For more details on the September 25, 2012 release of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, be sure to hit the official press release, or head to our new Mists of Pandaria game page to learn more about the expansion and prepurchase your digital copy.

*When you pre-purchase World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, you will be able to download an encrypted version of the game once it’s available, prior to the game’s release. This content will be unlocked and available

    It has already been stated that the prepatch will last for 2 weeks. The release date is on a Tuesday so that lines up nicely for patch day which would happen on Sept 11th. Also, unlike Cata there is no unlocked content at the prepatch, just a different talent system. Pet battles (like archaeology) won't be unlocked until the xpac is released even though you don't need to buy MoP to take advantage of it.

    If I recall, they said "about" 2 weeks. So it could be a little longer. I wouldn't expect it before the last week of August though.

    I wonder if they'll sell the soundtrack separately (on iTunes mayhaps)? That's the only thing I want from the CE.

    Hmm, a $10 mount? I am an owner of every CE since Vanilla, but the chain breaks here. Someone else can have my CE. I have an extra CE from Cata, wonder if anyone will pay me the carrying cost on it?

    That's 2 months from today, and Cata was only out for 21 months then. I remember another game that was released earlier this year, gave us 2 months notice, same publisher even. What was that called... Diabolical? Hope this next one doesn't suck nearly as bad, Cata was horribly designed and implemented so one can only hope. If they had any love for their fans the Annual Pass would have included Mists for free and not D3.
