World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Digital Launch Event

Blizzard recently announced their official retail events, taking place all over Europe to celebrate the launch of Mists of Pandaria. Even though many players won’t be able to make it there, they can still take part by tuning in to the free live stream on YouTube.

This is being referred to as the ‘Digital Launch Event’ – a show that will bring entertainment and insight from the developers to everyone at home via our YouTube channel, live and direct from our launch events all over Europe.

The stream is scheduled to start at  22:30 CEST (21:30 UK time), just an hour and a half before Mists of Pandaria goes live on realms across Europe. What better way to get into the mood for new adventures?

With film crews and live links between the official launch events in Paris, Moscow, Milan, Madrid, London, Stockholm and Cologne, the stream will connect with each event, bringing you the best of the entertainment, including a live orchestral performance of music from the game plus the sensational Manao – Drums of China, along with developer interviews and audience participation going on around Europe. Anyone can tune in to hear Mike Morhaime, Greg Street, Chris Metzen, Tom Chilton, Cory Stockton and many more as we delve into some of the key features and stories behind Mists of Pandaria, as well as getting some behind-the-scenes glimpses of what’s gone into World of Warcraft’s fourth expansion.
