World of Warcraft is going to the pandas

The most violent panda we have ever posted

Game developer Blizzard has revealed the fourth expansion pack for “World of Warcraft” — an expansion that will let people play the massively popular online game as a race of giant humanoid pandas known as the Pandaren.

Blizzard unveiled the forthcoming “Mists of Pandaria” expansion Friday at its annual BlizzCon convention in California. And no, this is not a joke

“Mists of Pandaria” will introduce the continent of Pandaria to “WoW” — a place inspired by real-world Asia, home of the real-world pandas — as well as a new martial-arts-focused Monk class.

Uh, OK.
