Black, White And Free All Over: Mists Of Pandaria

Preparations for the Warlords of Draenor expansion to World of Warcraft continues. Yesterday brought The Iron Tide, the traditional pre-expansion patch with all its many changes. Now Blizzard have done the other now-traditional thing and folded the last expansion's content into the base World of Warcraft game. That means subscribers who never bought Mists of Pandaria no longer need to, as its landmass and quests…

World Of Warcraft Player Reaches 90 Without Picking A Side

In case you'd forgotten, MMO players are crazy. I know: I used to be one. This, though, is a whole new level of dedication to a mind-numbingly repetitive task. A World of Warcraft player named "Doubleagent" (get it?) rolled a Pandaren character and never left the neutral starting zone. Somehow, though, they found a way to hit WoW's current level cap of 90. And by somehow,…

WoW’s J. Allen Brack On What Lies Beyond Pandaria

Whether you're a sucker for their furry brand of kung-fury or not, World of Warcraft's pandas are officially here to stay. Fortunately, Pandaria's mysterious de-misting actually revealed one of the better WoW expansions in recent memory, so life goes on – and quite merrily at that. But while fresh competitors like Guild Wars 2 continue to be the talk of the town, MoP didn't quite…

Pandaria’s First Big Patch Brings War Back To Warcraft

As a child, one of my first Real Person (read: PC) games was Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness. Back in those days, the Horde and Alliance, well, they didn't like each other so much. There was, I suppose you could say, a whole lot less crafting and a rather sizable helping of war. But times have changed, and so has the world of Warcraft. For…

A Gryphon’s-Eye View of Mists of Pandaria

We know World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria has kung-fun pandas in it. I've seen it on adverts on the telly and everything. What else does it have in it? Well, if you've got seven minutes you can find out, with the below flyover trailer that runs through some of the new zones, enemies, abilities and dungeons to be found in WoW's fourth expansion. It's…

Good News Bears: WoW’s Pandaren To Be Playable By All

Want to have a panda of your very own without any of the typical muss, fuss, or mists traditionally associated with exotic cow-colored bear ownership? Well, you have two options: 1) foist responsibility onto someone else every time it needs anything other than a warm, fluffy hug or 2) play World of Warcraft. I, of course, prefer the first option, but WoW's offering isn't half-bad…

Pandaring To The Crowds: Mists Of Pandaria’s Intro

Blizzard have spent thirteenty-billion dollars on an opening cinematic for their forthcoming Mists Of Pandaria expansion, so I suppose it's only fair that we all watch it. Then go, "Huh." And then think, "Wouldn't it be great if the game looked like that?" And then go back to picking our nails.

WOW Loses 1.1m Subs In One Quarter, Blames Diablo

World of Warcraft had 10.2 million subscribers in February and now it has 9.1 million. Blizzard have been quick to point out that their ageing behemoth is still the most popular subscription MMO in existence and also to reiterate the cyclical nature of peak subscriptions. They fell before Cataclysm and the fall before Pandaria was expected. It makes sense that people would drop out when…

Panda Ayes: Sign-Up For WoW Mists Of Pandaria Beta

Blizzard likes betas. I've never known a company to be quite so willing to let people prod at their work-in-progress game stuff. It's almost as if they get something out of it in return! My theory is while you play, they take the vast amounts of data that you generate and output it as raw code. That code is then tinted green and displayed on…

Ponder Pandas In This Mists Of Pandaria Footage

The chaps at Wowhead's coverage of a secret press peek at World Of Warcraft's Mists of Pandaria is 100% better than RPS's coverage. The trivial detail of us not actually seeing the game is only a technicality: touche, Wowhead. Our coverage of the Terrible Night Of Sleep expansion to Craig's Weekend is clearly better than yours, though: I was AFK for two hours, but after…

Diablo III Free To Twelve Month WoW Subs

If you're a registered World of Warcraft player, and are willing to commit to a 12 month contract to the game, you can get Diablo III for free. In one of the more confusing offers I've seen, Blizzard seem to be rewarding ongoing loyalty to WoW players, rather than actually trying to get new customers, as this is an offer open only to those who…

Numbers Game: Pre-Build Your WoW Panda

The forthcoming Mists of Pandaria expansion for World of Warcraft will be bringing along a revamped talent tree as well as fluffykins up there. Not happy with how players built identically specced characters at their most statistically efficient, Blizzard are hoping their new system will make it more tempting for players to forge their own path through the levels. Three specilisations will be available for…

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Trailer

I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that WoW's pandas look quite good in motion, but, well, they do. You can see them frolicking in their Asia-themed themepark world below in the Mists of Pandaria trailer. Cute hot air balloons, too. These Panda types will apparently be a neutral race, with players deciding between alliance and horde once they get past the starting stuff. The pandaren…
