WoW: Mists of Pandaria In-Game Cinematics Revealed

By - Source: MMO Champion | B 32 comments

MMO-Champion shows off several in-game cinematics from the latest beta build.

With just one month left until the controversial release of Blizzard's fourth World of Warcraft installment, a handful of in game cinematics unravel the mysteries surrounding the mists of Pandaria. Although the franchise has been ridiculed for its introduction of the pandaren race, it looks as though there may be more to this expansion than sunshine and jolly kung fu pandas.

Check out a few of the cinematics below, and let us know what you think!

Alliance Pandaria Prologue Cinematic

Horde Pandaria Prologue Cinematic

Shen-zin Su's Thorn

Battle at Serpent's Heart

Wandering Isle Departure

    Me neither man. I've played since TBC and the whole Pandaria Lore is just awesome for me, seriously.
    But since they changed the talent trees in Cata, I lost intereset. A lot. The game has no more calculations or actual thought involved in tactics and stat researching.

    Old news, I play on one those "other" servers and these were already leaked out last week or so. I personally think MoP is crap due to how they scrapped the talent trees down enough to even a toddler could play. As for other things I am almost convinced that this will be the last expansion for the game given how badly Blizz has done with cata and how much worse mop will be. So I am expecting that a lot will either quit the game for good or go to a TBC or wotlk p.server.

    I played WoW when it first came and played all vainilla content but blizz destroyed the community. This expansion is a joke, kung-fu panda + pokemon..... no thanks.

    Im waiting for Guild Wars 2 which will bring a fresh perspective without WoW problems.

    Lots of advertising of WoW Kung Fu Panda expansion recently on Toms....

    When Guild Wars 2 comes on the 25 I want to see headlines news about breaking records and how good it is. :)

    cinematics look good but in the actual gameplay the combat is boring, attacks with a sword are basically the character doing the same swinging motion over and over (not even touching the enemy) and the enemy life bar going down slightly each time as the only reaction to the hit.

    it is basically the combat system of the pokemon games for the gameboy but with slightly better animation.

    There's a very good chance that the next expansion will be about chipmunks.

    Personally not a big fan of MMORPG but WoW is still the king, So many came to dethrone it... Rift, SWTOR... all failed. Great things were said about SWTOR and yet it failed... People are saying great things about GW2 and it will fail as well.

    Hahaha, it's comical to see WoW players complaining that WoW is being "dumbed down," and that "a toddler could play."

    Welcome to everyone else's world! Your game has been at the cutting edge of pandering to casual players since shortly after its inception into gaming culture.
    Somehow, this is bitterly satisfying.

    From Blizzard yes, from Activision Blizzard (what they are now) absolutely NOT.

    Killed Diablo 3 and WoW with the Cata xpan.

    Played since vanilla and WoW is still alive and kicking (2 more expansions likely). As a casual gamer, I've got to give it to Blizzard for giving me a game that I can just re-up by subscription and have fun with a few BGs or whatever your pleasure is. I've been through way too many competitors to even bother with any new releases, if I feel like smacking down some 8th graders and housewives, I always have an outlet in WoW ;D.

    Haven't played in over a year now (after five years). I have no desire to start again after watching these. Cata was the last nail in the coffin and Kung Fu panda can't pull it out.

    Can't wait for this, i've played wow on and off since vanilla, and i've enjoyed each expansion, maybe not each as much as the other, but still enjoyed it nevertheless.I've tried other mmo's like guild wars, but the game play is never as good. The new up and coming GW2 looks amazing, the gameplay doesn't look great at all, I will rather spend my money on a subscription game like wow that has never let me down before than waste money on a great looking game that has poor gameplay.Personally I don't think "dumbing down" a game takes anything away from it, rather it enables someone to log in and play and let it come down to skill , instead of crunching numbers on a calculator every tme u think about changing something, and letting that become the deciding factor,that's no fun.At least to most people.
