WoW: Mists of Pandaria ‘Siege of Orgrimmar’ trailer

A four-minute cinematic sets the scene for new Patch 5.4 raid

Blizzard has released a new cinematic trailer for World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria’s Siege of Orgrimmar raid coming in Patch 5.4.

“Siege of Orgrimmar is a 3-wing, 14-boss raid for max-level players, which will call you to take down Warchief Garrosh Hellscream at the head of a host of Azeroth’s finest,” explains Blizzard.

The update also adds new Proving Grounds and Connected Realms features, new zones and a list of other tweaks.

Here’s are the highlights of the update:

New Raid: The Siege of Orgrimmar
– The Siege of Orgrimmar is a 3-wing, 14-boss raid for max-level players, which will call you to take down Warchief Garrosh Hellscream at the head of a host of Azeroth’s finest.

New Raid Mode: Flexible
– Raid with a group of friends and guild mates regardless of server, and with any group size from 10 to 25, and the difficulty will automatically adjust to provide an appropriately challenging experience.

New Feature: Proving Grounds
– Undertake solo trials to practice or learn a new class role (Tank, Healer, or Damage). Each trial is available in multiple difficulties — Bronze through Gold and the challenging ‘Endless’ mode.

New Zone: The Timeless Isle
– Giant outdoor zone promoting open-world adventuring with tons of hidden treasures, giant creatures to defeat, five world bosses, a pet battle tournament, and much more!

Legendary Quest: Judgment of the Black Prince
– The epic conclusion to the Legendary quest line will see players rewarded with unique cloaks imbued with powerful new abilities.

New Feature: Connected Realms
– Lower population realms will be permanently and seamlessly “linked.” Players on the same Connected Realm will be able to trade, send and receive mail, join the same guilds, access a single Auction House, run the same Raids and Dungeons, and join other adventurers to complete quests.

PvP: Redesigned Arena System
– Arenas are no longer tied to specific Battlegroups, and players no longer need to create or join an Arena team to compete. Similar to the Rated Battleground system, players in a party of the appropriate size can queue.

The patch, which is available for testing on the Public Test Realms now, is detailed in full in a huge list of patch notes on the official site.

Sony Releases Mysterious ‘The Reload’ Teaser Trailer

Sony has just launched a new teaser trailer called The Reload on their YouTube channel. The trailer doesn’t show much at all, other than teasing a date of October 23rd sending the internet into speculation mode.

While users on YouTube’s imaginations are running wild, suggesting everything from Syphon Filter to a new inFamous game (there is an odd lighting effect going on at the end of the teaser), we’re playing it safe and assuming it’s another “Michael” video.

The music and filming is very similar, and the female behind the counter is the same person as the Michael ad.

October 23rd is also the relaunch of the newly redesigned PlayStation Store, coincidentally, so it could be related to that. However, our gut says another Long Live Play commercial.

Check out the new teaser below, and then below that, the Michael ad for comparison. If you recall, the Michael ad was originally teased in a similar fashion.
