MYTHIC AND GOA PARTNER TO STORM EUROPE WITH WARHAMMER® ONLINE: AGE OF RECKONING™
France Telecom Online Publisher to publish and operate WAR across Europe
FAIRFAX, VA - JUNE 6, 2006 - Mythic Entertainment, a leading developer and publisher of massively-multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPG’s), today announced Warhammer® Online: Age of Reckoning™ (WAR) will be published and operated across Europe by GOA, the France Telecom-owned publisher of online games. GOA has successfully operated Dark Age of Camelot in Europe with Mythic since 2001. WAR is based on Games Workshop’s popular Warhammer® fantasy war game and features next generation Realm vs. Realm™ (RvR) game play that will immerse players in a world of perpetual conflict. WAR will arrive on the PC simultaneously in the US and Europe in the fall of 2007.
“The initial partnership between Mythic and GOA resulted in Dark Age of Camelot being the number one MMORPG in Europe for many years,” said Mark Jacobs, CEO and President of Mythic Entertainment. “With WAR our goal is nothing less than to take Europe by storm and regain that leadership position in the European market.”
“We are thrilled to be partners with Mythic again and build on the five-year relationship and experience that we’ve been enjoying with their team,” commented Ghislaine Le Rhun, Senior Vice President of GOA. “Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning has tremendous potential and we intend to treat the game with all the care it deserves. We look forward to introducing the game to European players.”
