'Warhammer Online' Gives Returning Veterans an Emperor's Welcome

by Rainier on March 12, 2009 @ 3:11 p.m. PDT

After two years of development Climax's Warhammer Online was cancelled after which Games Workshop granted its license to Mythic Entertainment. Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning is an MMO game for PC and console set in the fantasy world of Warhammer.

Based on Games Workshop's epic and longstanding tabletop fantasy war game, WAR is a unique MMORPG that features revolutionary Realm vs. Realm (RvR) gameplay that will immerse players in a world of perpetual conflict for years to come. WAR has been recognized for its unique play style that appeals to novice MMO players while offering incredible depth for more seasoned players.

Join one of six Armies and fight for the Armies of Order (Dwarf, High Elf and Empire) or the Armies of Destruction (Greenskin, Dark Elf, or Chaos). Wage war across three unique battlefronts.

Returning players will discover a plethora of updates and changes waiting for them, including:

  • The recently added Knight of the Blazing Sun and Black Guard tank careers
  • New easy, medium, and hard PQs designed for different group sizes and skill levels
  • Increased experience gain in Tiers 3 and 4
  • New Influence rewards earned in Open RvR
  • A new Domination system to determine Tier 4 zone control
  • Frequent, fun and rewarding live events
  • New and improved Guild rewards
  • Improvements to overall performance and server stability
  • Official WAR Forums

As if that weren't enough, the head bashin' Orc Choppa and the oath-sworn Dwarf Slayer are entering the fray as playable careers. The time has never been better to step back into the Age of Reckoning and re-join the WAR!
