World Of Warcraft: Mists Of Pandaria looks like it has a lot riding on it. With reports that numbers are down on Blizzard’s MMO, the developer is hoping its new expansion pack will draw players back to its game in droves.
World Of Warcraft Mists Of Pandaria: Characters
It also arrives off the back of World Of Warcraft Cataclysm, which is a tough act to follow – when you’ve had a dragon destroy most of your world, what do you do for an encore? The answer seems to be to introduce your players to hominid Pandas and then teach them Kung Fu.
Unlike many of the other player classes, the Monk mixes magic attacks with martial arts, allowing players to perform a whole host of moves reminiscent of the Street Fighter games.
World Of Warcraft Mists Of Pandaria: Plot
Of course, the expansion will offer far more content than a new race and new character class. The Blizzard scribes have been hard at work since Cataclysm writing a story for Pandaria that’s as engrossing and epic as anything World Of Warcraft has been known for.
World Of Warcraft Mists Of Pandaria: Features
Before all this happens, however, the players will have the huge sprawling continent of Pandaria to explore. The map has increased from five new zones to seven since Mists was announced last year, and it's crammed with quests to complete, dungeons to explore and even new activities to engage in.
World Of Warcraft Mists Of Pandaria: Verdict
World of Warcraft Mists Of Pandaria is more inviting and accessible than previous expansion packs. It may sound a little silly, but it boasts the story and superb Blizzard-level of depth to back up its developer’s assertion that it’s set to be a sure-fire hit with the World Of Warcraft faithful.
There’s more to the game than Kung Fu Pandas. The new expansion pack promises oodles of content, a strong storyline and – most importantly - massive amounts of fun. It might be time to renew your WOW subscription.
