  • So You Want to be an MMO Developer? Part 2 of 4

    MMORPG.com has posted the second in a series of four developer logs by Nick Parkinson. He continues his look at the question So You Want to be an MMO Developer.

    Most development studios work with C++ and maybe some C#. Fortunately, more and more schools (high schools included) are offering beginner courses in various forms of computer programming, C++ included. Take those, see if you like it – it’ll be challenging but if you enjoy it keep going. If you find yourself not liking it at all, it’s probably best to focus on some other area of development as it’s only going to get more intense.

    MMORPG.com just posted this article detailing a press conference with EA Mythic...

W.A.R. is set in the Warhammer Universe which was been around about twenty-five years. There are six player races people can choose from: Greenskins (orcs and goblins), Dwarves, Empire Humans (think medieval Germany), Chaos Humans (think crazed Vikings), High Elves, and Dark Elves.
