Blizzard has detailed plans for a number of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria launch events.
Official events will be held in conjunction with retail partners in the UK, US, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Brazil, Mexico, Chile and Taiwan on the evening of September 24.
Members of the World of Warcraft development team will be in attendance at many of the events to meet players and sign copies of the game.
In the UK, the launch event will take place at Café de Paris in Coventry Street, London in partnership with GAME.
Kicking off at 8pm, "attendees will be treated to a stage presentation featuring an evening of activities, special guests, giveaways, and entertainment - including a Mists of Pandaria procession - before the expansion goes on sale at 11pm".
Further details on each of the global launch events can be found here.
Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime said: "A lot of hard work and long hours went into making Mists of Pandaria a truly epic expansion, so we're really looking forward to coming together and having some fun with the community before everyone takes off for the new continent."
The developer confirmed a World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria release date of September 25 back in July, when it also detailed the various ways you'll be able to pick up the game's fourth expansion, which will come in a number of editions both digitally and at retail.
