The next World of Warcraft expansion has been announced, “Mists of Pandaria”. It was revealed at BlizzCon over this weekend. Some major new features include: increasing the level cap to level 90, a new race, new Pandaria game zones, and a new pet battle system.
Unfortunately, there isn’t an official Mists of Pandaria release date yet, but based on the previous expansion announcement dates vs. release dates timeline, we can estimate to see a release date sometime in mid-late December (Just in time for the holiday rush). I expected it will be on many gamer’s wish lists this year.
See below for previous expansion release timelines.
- Burning Crusade – Expansion Officially Announced: November 9th, 2006
Release Date: January 16, 2007 (2 months, 7 days apart)
- Wrath of the Lich King – Expansion Officially Announced: September 15th, 2008
Release Date: November 13, 2008 (1 month, 29 days apart)
- Cataclysm – Expansion Officially Announced: October 4th, 2010
Release Date: December 7th, 2010 (2 month, 3 days apart)
As for a price, it should be priced at $39.99 like previous expansions were, with a more expensive collectors edition available as well.
It will be interesting to see what will happen to Wow Gold prices over the upcoming months, be sure to watch. Previous expansions have caused spikes in Wow Gold prices from many gamers returning to World of Warcraft, as well as anticipation for new features.
You can check prices on your server now, by running a search for your realm and faction.
