Warhammer Online Goes F2P for Final Few Weeks

Posted Mon, Nov 04, 2013 by Martuk

Make your return to Warhammer Online to fight the war one last time before the MMORPG is sunset next month. Mythic recently announced that the subscription fee for Warhammer Online has been dropped for all players, allowing anyone currently subscribing or with an account in good standing to return and play for free until the MMORPG closes on December 18th.

As part of the final sendoff event, Mythic will also be adding new NPCs to the game to power up players and provide “other unique experiences.”  Read the full announcement below.

Greetings Warhammer players,

Effective immediately we will be turning off the ability to apply one month subscriptions and game time codes to Warhammer Online accounts and removing the ability to open new Warhammer Online accounts. 

To give Warhammer Online a proper sendoff we are opening the game to anyone free of charge that has or had an account in good standing starting October 31st, 2013.  We will be adding new NPC’s to the game in order to power up your characters as well as other unique experiences for everyone to enjoy as we say goodbye to Warhammer Online over the next few weeks.  So please join us and help say goodbye to Warhammer Online in one last big WAAAGH!

See you soon!

Well, that's just cruel. WAR was one of my favorite all time MMO's, regardless of all the hate on forums etc, when the game was in its first year I had a fantastic time. So logging in now, getting flashbacks to the fun times and having to give it all up is more then I can take. Secondly, for many months the community wanted WAR to go FTP as a way to save the game. To do this now in its final throws is just mocking the community.
