The long-awaited Pandarens are finally coming to World of Warcraft, along with their stunning Pandaria continent reminiscent of ancient China. The announcement was made during BlizzCon, and includes Panderans as playable characters, the Panderia continent with new zones, a new “Monk” class, a level cap of 90, and a Pokemon-like battle system for pets.

The Pandarens, a race of giant pandas, made their original debut as an April Fool’s joke with Warcraft 3, but won the hearts of many gamers. It was stated they were a race “driven from their tranquil lands by the marauding centaurs, fight ceaselessly to find a new homeland amongst the warring civilizations of southern Kalimdor.” The new video from Blizzard seems to hold true to this lore.
