Blizzard Offers 75% Off World of Warcraft Prices

With World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria coming next month, Blizzard hopes to reel more players in with a World of Warcraft mega-sale. From now until August 27th, players can purchase the World of Warcraft Battle Chest for $5, Wrath of the Lich King for $5, and Cataclysm for $10 when purchased directly from Blizzard.

With the limited sale, players that are completely new to the World of Warcraft universe will be able to create their own Panda character for a total of $59.99. If you haven't seen it yet, Blizzard also recently released the game's first opening sequence. With Mists of Pandaria coming in as the franchise's fourth expansion, it's no surprise Blizzard is offering these discounted prices.

Of course, it may also have something to do with the fact that the game has lost millions of subscribers since its first expansion. Will you be joining in on the pandamonium September 25th? Or are you still anxiously waiting for a Titan announcement?

    People still play that?
    More importantly, would NEW players get into that old game? Start from scratch AND pay a monthly fee for that?
    IDK, just legitimate questions here, because I for one would not even consider doing that. If they made it free-to-play, I might consider it, although given that the game is ancient, I doubt it.

    I have to admit, I loved the trailer.

    Still Blizz will probably pick up more new subscribers with this deal than some MMOs ever get in their lifetime.
