  • ...aaaaaand we're back.

    Beta testing resumes next week with a special sneak peek at the new Dark Elf lands and careers. Thanks to the tremendous response from fans around the world, the development team has a strong pool of gamers to engage in WAR's final tuning stages.

  • Hi, everyone! I'm Bob.

    There's a new community guy in the Warhammer Online community, and his name is Bob Mull. He introduces himself and talks a bit about his background in this open letter to the WAR community.

    I’m Robert Mull, the new Community Relations Director for EA Mythic. I oversee the work our team of Community Coordinators do for Warhammer Online (James Nichols), Dark Age of Camelot (Missy Hatch and Joanne Laroche) and Ultima Online (Jeremy Dalberg). They are a great team and I am lucky to have inherited them.

  • New mounts, classes, and zones! Excellent.

    If you're not subscribed to the Warhammer newsletter, you probably missed the wealth of information that can be found in the November edition.

    We’re almost ready to re-open the WAR Beta, and I know that our Beta Community has been gnashing their teeth in anticipation. Guess what? They should be giddy with excitement because we’ll have an amazing amount of new features and enhancements in the game for them to test, as well as brand new Elf content for them to experience.

  • Simmer down now!

    Mark Jacobs commented in an ongoing Warhammer Online thread today to ask buzzing fans to calm down a bit, and to reassure the player base that no drastic changes had yet been made.

    Folks,

    Hey, I have a good idea. Why doesn't everyone wait till we reopen the Beta before passing judgment? Foolish, I know, it's much, much more fun to pass judgment on us before you have all the facts...
