Blizzard Entertainment has sent out the first official image and teaser for World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria's second major update. Patch 5.2, dealing with Thunder Isle, is due to hit the public test realms in early January.
The image attached below confirms the next major raid coming to Azeroth, known as Thunder Isle. This is also, obviously, an outside shot from that new location.
There are not many details yet, but only this official statement:
"Happy Holidays from the World of Warcraft team! Here’s a small present to tide you over until the new year."
Look out for more information later today, as Blizzard pulls back the curtain a little more.
