Blizzard Entertainment today unveiled plans for several official global launch events celebrating the upcoming release of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria on September 25th, 2012 for PC.
Beginning on the evening of September 24, key retail partners in the US, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain, Sweden, the UK, Brazil, Mexico, Chile, and the region of Taiwan will welcome gamers. Members of the World of Warcraft development team will be on hand at many of the official launch events to meet players and sign their copies of the game.
In the US, the launch event will take place in Southern California, near Blizzard headquarters at Giant Wheel Court at the Irvine Spectrum Center with a 9:00 p.m. PDT start.
Attendees will be treated to a stage presentation featuring an evening of activities, special guests, giveaways, and entertainment - including a “challenge-mode challenge” between Blizzard employees and members of the community - before the expansion goes on sale at midnight.
In World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, warships of the Alliance and Horde clash off the coast of a long-lost continent, signaling the start of a new era of discovery and conquest in the history of Azeroth.
