Blizzard has unleashed the cinematic introduction video for fourth World of Warcraft expansion Mists of Pandaria.
Renowned for lavish visual productions, Blizzard pulls no punches here. The Pandaren race and land are introduced in gorgeous fashion.
First, there's a Horde versus Alliance battle at sea. Both boats are wrecked, and a lone survivor from each clambers to shore. They're in unknown territory - a strange, jungle-dense land.
The orc and the human meet and clash at an outdoor temple. They smash statues as they flail wildly.
Then, bamboo - a Pandaren enters the fray.
It may be the prettiest World of Warcraft cinematic I've seen.
