Published on Jul 2, 2012
Blizzard has revealed its line up for this year's Gamescom and it will include the world premiere of the opening cinematic of WoW expansion Mists Of Pandaria.
The cinematic will be shown on 15 August, while visitors will also be able to sample Mists Of Pandaria for themselves, with a hands-on demo that will encompass the panderian race's starting zone and enable them to play as the game's newest class, the monk.
Mists of Pandaria will focus on the conflict between WoW's Horde and Alliance factions, vying for control over a new continent.
StarCraft 2's Heart of the Swarm expansion will also be on show; players will be able sample the new units for the zerg, protoss and terran factions.
Blizzard will also be hosting a number of other events at Gamescom including live pro-gamer StarCraft 2 matches, quizzes, dance competitions (?) and developer meet-and-greets. There will also be an orchestral performance of Blizzard game music during the show.
