Blizzard has announced that some information is coming about the highly anticipated Mists of Pandaria, World of Warcraft's
fourth expansion -- well, information with regards to when there will be information about Mists of Pandaria
. In the middle of March, Blizzard will hold a special press event for members of the media to see what kind of progress has been made, in showable form, since BlizzCon 2011's impressively far-along demo.
As Nethaera posted, information is coming, and we now have a date. This feels like Blizzard's taking a page from the Apple book. Pressers and hype events like these work incredibly well for a company like Blizzard that is very much an Apple of its industry. By calling its own press conferences, conventions, and press trips rather than announcing information amongst the rest of the gaming industry at conventions like PAX, the message is much more focused and clear -- the cacophony is removed. I'm excited to know when new information will be available. Of course, I'd rather have the information, but a day to hope for is better than nothing. It's gonna get busy in March.
Mists of Pandaria information coming in March
Is there going to be any updates coming in the next 10 months in the way of MOP articles or anything like that?
Any dev interviews or previews or videos or anything?
Or is there perhaps a big content patch on the way soon?
My sub is about to expire and I just want to know if theres any new articles coming to the site or content coming to the game - or if I should just let my sub expire until the next expansion.
Thanks for your time.
Yes. (Information wise.) We have more planned for the near future in regard to Mists of Pandaria information. We are in the process of contacting media about an event we have planned for March. We posted the following on Facebook-
A Break in the Mists: Alert the Press!
Since the announcement of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria at BlizzCon 2011, we've been hard at work on all of the new game features, environments, dungeons, and other content that awaits adventurers. Today, we're inviting members of the press worldwide to get an updated sneak peek and some hands-on time with the latest version of World of Warcraft's fourth expansion at an event taking place March 13 - 15.
If you want to know more about what lies hidden within the mists of Pandaria, wait for the season's end....
You can bet that there will be plenty of coverage by the media and fansites plus we'll also have our own releases we are planning to do as well that will get everyone more in the know of our plans and development of Mists of Pandaria.
*Updated to make it clear that the "Yes" is in reference to more information being on its way in regard to Mists of Pandaria.
World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria is the next expansion, raising the level cap to 90, introducing a brand new talent system, and bringing forth the long-lost pandaren race to both Horde and Alliance. Check out the trailer and follow us for all the latest
