'Warhammer Online' Forges 3rd Novel in Chaos

by Rainier on Sept. 3, 2009 @ 9:03 a.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.

Experience the glory of Realm vs. Realm! Declare your allegiance and join hundreds of thousands of mighty heroes on the battlefields of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, the new MMORPG from Mythic Entertainment, the creators of Dark Age of Camelot. Enter a grim fantasy world of perpetual conflict to fight for the Realms of Order (Dwarfs, High Elves, and Empire) or Destruction (Greenskins, Dark Elves, and Chaos). Invade enemy lands, besiege imposing fortresses, and sack sprawling capital cities for the glory of your Realm. Wield devastating magic and deadly weapons, battle monstrous creatures, and join your brothers-in-arms in epic Public Quests™. Climb the Bastion Stair, carry your Guild Banner into battle, and unlock the infinite secrets of the Tome of Knowledge as you travel the world. Sharpen your blade and unleash your inner mutation; the Age of Reckoning has begun and WAR is everywhere!

Forged in Chaos, by Black Library author C.L. Werner, provides an epic and gripping account of Destruction's incursion into the infinitely massive and decidedly deadly Bastion Stair in search of the legendary Spear of Myrmidia. As the armies of Destruction continue their war upon the civilized lands, the Raven Host of Chaos is poised to march upon the Empire of Man in an unstoppable tide. To ensure victory against the Emperor's Order of the Griffon, an elite party of Chaos warriors is tasked with the quest to find the Spear of Myrmidia and fully unleash the power of the Winds of Chaos. To work such awesome magic, the marauder Kormak must dare venture into the Bastion Stair, portal to the Realm of Khorne, and defy the Blood God's wrath.However, the warriors of the Raven Host are not the only ones with an interest in harnessing the powers of Chaos; Treacherous Dark Elves and brutish Orcs each look to seize the power for themselves, while a desperate Imperial army races to deny all of their foes the dreaded might of Chaos.

"With the first two Warhammer Online novels, Empire in Chaos and DArk Storm Gathering, we saw the Realm vs. Realm conflict from the besieged viewpoint of Order," said Jeff Hickman, Executive Producer for Mythic Entertainment. "Forged in Chaos provides readers with their first look into the dark, megalomaniacal minds of the forces of Destruction. Rife with internal conflict, shifting allegiances, and a never-ending lust for murder, we see firsthand how this unholy alliance of Destruction is just as deadly to each other as they are to the armies of Order."

"Mythic Entertainment have done an amazing job capturing the twisted morality and mindset of the Forces of Destruction in Warhammer Online and it was a pleasure to tap into that for Forged in Chaos," said C.L. Werner. "From the grim Chaos northmen, to the treacherous dark elves and bloodthirsty greenskins, the villains in Forged in Chaos represent in-game characters I think readers will find both engaging and disturbing. The Bastion Stair, as envisioned for WAR is a truly infernal setting, a hellish crucible to try the most powerful of heroes and a fitting obstacle for the cast to overcome. Recreating this nightmarish place from the designs of the game developers was a daunting, but extremely rewarding labor."

Based on the popular tabletop war game from Games Workshop, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning features revolutionary Realm vs. Realm conflict that will provide players with an engaging battleground for years to come. Available now for PC, WAR is rated “T” for Teen by the ESRB.
