Next month Blizzard Entertainment will show off Mists of Pandaria, the fourth expansion pack for World of Warcraft. They're going to hold a three-day sneak peek event. Unfortunately, it's for press only.

"Since the announcement of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria at BlizzCon 2011, we’ve been hard at work on all of the new game features, environments, dungeons, and other content that awaits adventurers," said Blizzard. "Today, we’re inviting members of the press worldwide to get an updated sneak peek and some hands-on time with the latest version of World of Warcraft’s fourth expansion at an event taking place March 13 - 15."

Pandaria will add a new continent for players to explore and raises the level cap to 90. It also introduces a new playable race, Pandarens, and a Monk class. Pet battles, challenge dungeons and combat scenarios are some of the other new features mentioned.

A big press event like this is necessary because there won't be a BlizzCon this year. Blizzard said that they're too busy trying to finish up Pandaria, Diablo III, and StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm. It's possible that Pandaria would've been released before a potential BlizzCon 2012, anyway, as it's expected sometime this year.

Players will eventually get a chance to try out Pandaria before its release. By signing up for a year's subscription to WoW, you can guarantee yourself a spot in the expansion pack's beta.
