But they’re not invading us oh no it’s US invading THEM! Eeep! Anyways on to the goodies. The game will be available for the first time ever in 3 flavors!:
Standard Box/Standard Digital: for 39.99 you will get the standard edition game just the content with no fluff in your choice of a digital download or a box copy if you prefer the retail route.
Digital Deluxe: New for the first time it’s basically a digital version of the collectors edition. For 59.99 you’ll get the standard game via digital download as well as the Imperial Quilen flying Mount (WoW’s version of a Fu dog + wings if you ask me), the Lucky Quilen cub vanity pet a smaller way too cute version of the mount to follow you around. Also included are other Blizzard game bonuses a banner accent and sigil set for Diablo III and a set of profile pictures for Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty, Infested Orc and Night Elf Templar.
Collectors Edition: Finally ringing in at 79.99 (and my box of choice since I started, can’t help it) the boxed collectors edition gives you everything listed above as well as : A dvd/blu-ray behind the scenes and making of info, a CD soundtrack (worth the price of admission alone here, seriously always good music on this) and a mouse mat featuring my favorite Pandaren and yours, Chen Stormstout.
Good to finally have the details on all this. Now navigate either physically or via the interwebs to your store of choice and make your preorder!
Keep tuned in for more Mists of Pandaria news here. August 16th will see the premier of the games cinematic at Gamescon! I’ll be sure to cover that and I’m slowly working on an ongoing feature for the game as best I can with my currently gimped beta access. Hoping to have more out soon!
