If you like WoW, pandas, or beta testing, today's your lucky day. Blizzard announced that the beta for the next World of Warcraft expansion, Mists of Panderia, is starting today.

According to the Battle.net blog, annual pass-holders will automatically get beta access, along with the press, fan-sites, etc. Monthly subscribers can opt-in for the chance to be added as well, though Blizzard says opt-in beta testers will only be let in as needed.

There's no non-disclosure agreement, so expect images and video to start popping up all over the place. That said, Blizzard has made it very clear that Mists of Panderia is still very much a work in progress, so don't be surprised some of those images look a little janky.
