world of warcraft mists of pandaria

Blizzard Entertainment confirms that the World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria expansion pack has a release date. It will be out in stores and online on September 25, 2012. This fourth expansion pack for the popular MMORPG adds the lost continent of Pandaria to the game, as well as playable Pandarens (think Kung-Fu Panda), a new monk class, and quite a bit more besides.

Expect to pay $39.99 for digital and physical copies of Mists of Pandaria in its most basic form, though you'll of course be able to spend additional dollars on more bonus-packed releases as well. A Digital Deluxe version of the expansion pack will sell for $59.99 online and a physical Collector's Edition release carries a $79.99 price tag. Players who purchase the basic version (digital or physical, doesn't matter) will also have the option of spending an extra $20 to get the Digital Deluxe bonuses.

So in the words of the late Maurice Sendak, “let the wild rumpus start!”

Rhode Island Governor On Kingdoms of Amalur:

Want to see a trailer for the Kingdoms of Amalur MMO? It's a essentially an early look at an MMO that you will never play. Apparently, this was planned as the launch trailer for the MMO, and judging by the obvious placeholder voice-over, this isn't even a finished trailer. A sad, but somehow fitting, end to the debacle that was 38 Studios.

It was sent to game blog Kotaku by an insider who felt that the effort of the people who spent four years developing Amalur deserves to be seen. Check it out, here.

Age of Wushu

Age of Wushu is the free-to-play MMORPG that plops players in an idealized version of Feudal China. There, you'll train and otherwise live your Kung Fu dreams through the power of MMOs. Here's a snippet from our Age of Wushu preview from Kung Fu master Steve Johnson:

"Once you’ve locked down your skills, combat is timed-cooldown style, with rock-paper-scissor elements--some skills perfectly counter others, while some defenses work poorly against certain kinds of attacks. Standard MMO stuff, but it’s pulled off pretty well here. While the combat is essentially turn-based, it’s frantic and fast enough to feel “real,” and you can even link moves together in combos. Not bad for a free-to-play game; not bad at all."

Grab your katana and head over to our full Age of Wushu preview from E3 2012 now, grasshopper.


In our Elder Scrolls Online gameplay demo from E3 2012 Live, Morgan Webb chats with Paul Sage from Zenimax Studios about this highly anticipated MMO. Here's what we learned: the game takes place a thousand years before Skyrim, players can join three different factions and there will be plenty of combat. Not mentioned was how playing Elder Scrolls can now officially be deemed a "social" activity.

Star Wars: The Old Republic Update 1.2 Rides In On The Back Of A Tauntaun

BioWare is finally launching the much-talked-about Game Update 1.2 for Star Wars: The Old Republic today, April 13, 2012, adding an expanded Legacy system, a new Operation, a new PvP Warzone, and various other bits to the popular MMO.
