World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria beta trial launches soon

A select few World of Warcraft players will soon be given the chance to try out Mists of Pandaria, the newest expansion pack for the hugely popular MMO title.

Annual Pass holders, press, fansites and opt-in beta testers are being sent invitations to try out the latest add-on, in order to help iron out the bugs ahead of its commercial release on PC later this year.

In addition to providing feedback on performance, participants will be permitted to take as many screenshots and videos as they wish, meaning fans will soon be able to share all sorts of juicy details on the new content soon.

Mists of Pandaria is the fourth expansion pack for World of Warcraft and introduces an entirely new continent, populated by a mystical race of martial arts-trained panda bears called the Pandaren.

The new add-on allows players to play as the noble Pandaren and unlock a new Monk character class as they explore new areas, embark on hundreds of extra quests and train their characters up to level 90.

Other fresh features include the all-new Challenge Mode and Pet Battle system, which lets players train up their vanity pets and pit them against each other.
