Ten Ton Hammer Interviews Jeff Hickman!

10 Minutes with Jeff Hickman

Ten Ton Hammer sat down with Jeff Hickman, Senior Producer for EA Mythic's Warhammer Online. Mr. Hickman answered a number of questions, ranging from his comfortability with side-by-side comparisons to WoW to how open Warhammer Online will be to mainstream gamers who may not immediately identify with WAR's brand of player vs. player combat and the dark, gritty overtones of the license.

"(Regarding comparisons to World of Warcraft's art style) I prefer to stand on our own two feet. It's definitely difficult because we don't choose to look like anybody but Warhammer. We say that and some people kinda go "ohohoho, you're just saying that." And, no. Games Workshop has input in everything that we do. We look like Warhammer, and it just so happens that other games kind of look like Warhammer too. I don't say that to be crappy to other games, it's just a fact."
