  • EA Mythic's Paul Barnett (Producer) and Jeff Hickman (Design Manager) answer questions at a telephone press conference.

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

    The call began with Jeff Hickman giving an overview on the game itself. In case you have been in an anti-MMO bubble for the last six months here is the breakdown. 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.

  • Areae means “many places” in Latin.

    Raph Koster has unveiled his new company, Areae.

    Who are we?
    Areae, Inc. was founded in July of 2006. We’re venture-backed now, and run by our President, Raph Koster and John Donham, veterans of the whole “massively multiplayer” scene. We’re working on some new tech that will literally change how virtual worlds are made. We’ve got a cool world or two incubating on the back burner. And we’re hiring, so if any of this sounds exciting, drop us a line. We’ll be running quiet for a while — check back in a few months to see how far we’ve come.

  • New Battleground

    The official site for Final Fantasy XI has been updated with details for a new PvP Battlefield.

    The Aht Urhgan expansion pack has introduced a myriad of new battles--from the quick, SWAT-style Assault missions to the citywide skirmishes experienced in Besieged. Salvage continues in this tradition by offering several new exploratory missions designed for alliances. While similar to Limbus battles in that up to 18 adventurers can participate, Salvage battles are more than a relentless assault on a seemingly never-ending wave of enemies—they will require precise teamwork and impeccable strategy to complete.
