World of Warcraft trailer teases the Thunder King's arrival with its newest patch

Blizzard released a new teaser trailer for World of Warcraft today, offering a quick look at the new environments and creatures as well as a glimpse at the mysterious Thunder King available in patch 5.2 today.

The patch grants players access to the Island of the Thunder King in Pandaria, where players can aid the charge to conquer the lands surrounding Emperor Lei Shen's palace, start new questlines and fight for the right to enter the King's Treasure Room and raid it for powerful goodies.

The update includes the new raid instance Throne of Thunder, in which players will face off directly with the Thunder King himself. Successfully defeating Lei Shen will reward players with Valor items.

Check out the video above for a closer look at what players will find in patch 5.2.
