The fourth add-on adds a new playable race named the Pandaren with its own starting zones and quests, the monk character class, a new continent with a level cap of 90, challenge modes and a pet battle system.

"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 has to offer when the expansion comes out in September."
