Blizzard Entertainment today announced that World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria will be available in stores and online starting from September 25, 2012.

The fourth expansion for Blizzard's massively multiplayer online role-playing game will allow explorers of the Alliance and the Horde to set foot upon the shores of the long-lost continent of Pandaria and embark on a journey to uncover its ancient mysteries.

“Mists of Pandaria contains the biggest variety of new content we’ve ever created for a World of Warcraft expansion, with features that will appeal to new players, veterans, and everyone in between,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment.

“We’ve received a lot of great feedback from players during our most extensive beta test yet, and we hope they enjoy exploring everything Pandaria has to offer when the expansion comes out in September.”
