World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Developer Diary Discusses Story, Art and Community

on September 24, 2012 2:00 PM

Mists of Pandaria, the new expansion of World of Warcraft, will be released tomorrow, and Blizzard is hoping for the recently dieting ten ton gorilla of MMORPGs to regain some weight.

Today the developer published a new developer diary video featuring Chief Storyteller Chris Metzen and Art Director Chris Robinson as they discuss the story that leads to the parting of the mists hiding Pandaria and the new artistic direction behind the expansion. They also pay homage to the community of the game.

You can watch the dev diary below. If you’re one of the millions that departed World of Warcraft since Cataclysm, are you going to resub for Mists?

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
