Blizzard posted a bit of clarification on the exact time the MoP
cinematic will finally be revealed.
The blog posts says that the cinematic will debut at 14:00 (2:00 p.m.) on Thursday, Aug. 16 in Cologne, Germany (which is where gamescom is
). According to this handy-dandy time zone converter
, that means that the cinematic will debut states side at 8:00 a.m. Eastern on Thursday, Aug. 16 (7:00 a.m. Central, 6:00 a.m. Mountain, and 5:00 a.m. Pacific).
So while we'll certainly be up bringing it to you as soon as we get a feed of it, you can just roll over out of bed and take a look when you wake up in the morning. Just be sure to get us something from the McDonald's breakfast menu in return, please.
Hopefully, the cinematic comes with a release date (or ideally, that release date will be announced sooner).
If anything more develops, we'll let you know!
