today announced the development of Mists of Pandaria
, the fourth expansion to World of Warcraft
that lifts the fog of mystery surrounding a long-lost continent that has been newly rediscovered following the events of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm
. The new expansion reintroduces as a playable race the elusive pandaren, originally seen in Blizzard's real-time strategy game Warcraft III
, and adds a brand-new player class: the martial-arts-focused Monk. While exploring the mysteries of an exotic new land and advancing to the new level cap of 90, players will experience a range of new content and game features, including new quests and dungeons, group scenarios and "challenge" modes, pet battles, and more.
