Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning

  • EA Mythic Media Event Report

    RPG Vault offers their views form the EA/Mythic Media Event.

    Perhaps most interesting was a new feature called Camelot Campaigns. These are described as in-game story arcs that will last six months, with new content being added every two weeks. The first one is titled A Dragon's Revenge. Further details were somewhat sketchy, but it looks like each of the three realms will have a different dragon.

  • Ten Ton Hammer Reports on the EA Mythic / Warhammer Online Press Event

    Ten Ton Hammer travelled to the EA Mythic Press Event in Fairfax, VA last week, where the full cast of lead devs brought us up to speed on Warhammer Online's recent progress. Included was a first-ever public demo of the Chaos starting area, plus a look at the Empire starting area and more than a few sessions of WAR's highly addictive RvR scenarios. Also, for the first time ever, a Ton Ton Hammer article includes streaming video, and you'll want to check out Creative Director Paul Barnett's energetic descriptions of the Empire and Chaos classes!

    "Members of the press were invited to EA Mythic's studios in Fairfax, VA to get a first-hand glimpse of the latest developments in Warhammer Online. It might have seemed odd that EA Mythic had set aside 4 hours for a game still deep in development- almost the entire afternoon, in fact - but as afternoon turned to evening no one could believe how much time had passed, and more than a few of us wanted to keep playing and asking questions."

  • 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.

    " 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."

  • Bestiary Update

    Today we have seven new additions to our Warhammer Online Bestiary. Ranging from the simple Boar all the way to the stinky River Troll, this update shows some of the strange and mundane creatures in the Warhammer World. Updates Include...

    -Boar
    -Chaos Spawn
    -Squig
    -Giant Spider
    -Harpy
    -Giant
    -Troll

    The gifts of Chaos come at a high price, and sometimes that price can be too high. For those who fail the test of the Chaos Gods, or try to take too much power too quickly, their eventual fate is to be turned into a Spawn...

    Today we've updated our Location Overview page to include links and information on the two recently added zones of Karak Eight Peaks & Karaz A Karak. If you're looking for information on the two main capitals of the Greenskin and Dwarf forces then look no further then our Location page.

    The now conquered Dwarf city of Karak Eight Peaks acts as the capital of the oncoming Greenskin horde...

  • Karaz A Karak

    Today we present the last location of the Dwarf/Greenskin conflict; Karaz A Karak; the Dwarf Capital city. With our own TenTonThought as well as associated images you can get a feel for the concept behind the Dwarf capital city.

    As the capital of the stoic Dwarfs, it is in this mountain stronghold where players of that race will find their home.

  • Warhammer Online Update

    WarCry.com posted this interview with Assistant Producer Josh Drescher. Don't miss out on a thing, keep reading to see what they were able to learn.

    WarCry Network:: Each race you chose for Warhammer (Dark Elves, High Elves, Greenskins, Dwarfs, Empire and Chaos) carries a distinct flavor. What types of players do you think each one will appeal to?

    Josh Drescher: Smart, savvy folks who like having a great time.

    Honestly, I think it's impossible to guess what will attract certain players to certain races or careers. I, personally, have hated elves in every other game I've ever played, but I'll be rolling a Dark Elf on launch day because I just love the crazy Lord Byron-in-and-evil-opium-den vibe. And they look really cool. And... well, you'll have to wait a bit longer to see what we're doing with their careers, but I think people will be very excited.

  • Games Workshop Interview - Part 2

    Warhammer Alliance has posted part II of thier interview with Erik Mogensen of Games Workshop.

    If it's Warhammer and it's on anything other than paper or a tabletop, odds are Erik Mogensen of Games Workshop is involved with it. Erik is the Licensing Manager for Games Workshop, a title that really does little justice for just how involved he is. Early last year Erik gave us a great interview in which he laid out just how involved Games Workshop was in the development of Warhammer Online. This time Erik spends a little more time and updates with what is new in his neck of the woods. Thanks for the update Erik..
