The in-game items will also be included in the Digital Deluxe edition, which will be available to download directly from for $59.99.

"Mists of Pandaria contains the biggest variety of new content we've ever created for a World of Warcraft expansion, with features that will appeal to new players, veterans, and everyone in between," said Blizzard CEO and co-founder Mike Morhaime.

"We've received a lot of great feedback from players during our most extensive beta test yet, and we hope they enjoy exploring everything Pandaria hasto offer when the expansion comes out in September."

Mists of Pandaria gives WoW players access to the lost continent of Pandaria, as well as the ability to play as the panda-like Pandarens. It was first announced back in October last year.
