Mists of Pandaria Release Date Announced Alongside Collector’s Edition

The long awaited expansion is finally getting a release in just two months!

That’s right, folks. Blizzard have finally spilled the beans on when Mists of Pandaria will be coming to World of Warcraft and the official street date is September 25th, putting it at exactly two months from today’s announcement.

Alongside the release date, Blizz also showed off the fancy new collector’s edition and digital deluxe edition.

The digital deluxe edition will retail at $59.99 and the collector’s edition will cost only $79.99. That’s pretty cheap, meaning it’s only £59.99 for you UK players.

I’m not sold on the collector’s edition myself. I only bought the previous ones because I’m an avid player of the Warcraft TCG, and Blizz like to put exclusive cards in the collector’s editions, but they’ve forgone that this time. All I really want is the digital content, I’m sure I can live without another mouse mat and a blu-ray disc.

How about you? Which edition of Mists of Pandaria are you going to be buying?
