Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning

  • Erik Mogensen Games Workshop Interview

    MMORPG.com has posted this interview today. Keep reading to get a glimpse into this upcoming game.

    MMORPG.com: 2006 was a big year for Games Workshop with the launch of Mark of Chaos, the Dawn of War expansions, and of course the development of Warhammer Online. Can you give us some insight into what is on the plate for 2007?

    Erik Mogensen: First of all, I’d like to wish you and all the MMORPG.com fans out there a very happy New Year. 2007 is going to be very exciting for all of us!

    Obviously, the big news for MMO fans is that there is now less than a year to wait until Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning’s release date. We all know how fast a year can go by! I’m afraid I’m going to have to resort to the old ‘nothing’s been announced yet’ regarding other projects. Sorry. Our other licensees THQ and Namco Bandai Games have plans in the works, but I’m going to leave it to them to reveal what’s cooking when they think the time is right. I’ll tell you this much: I’m very busy these days!

  • Karak Eight Peaks Zone Overview

    Today here at Ten Ton Hammer we release the Zone Overview page for the conquered city of Karak Eight Peaks. If you're a Dwarf who wants to see your once glorious city, or a Greenskin who likes gloating about your latest conquest, this page is for you! Filled with official lore, TenTonThoughts and screenshots this page has Karak Eight Peaks written all over it (it's even in the title!).

    The current capital of the Greenskins; Karak Eight Peaks was a former city of the Dwarfs. As a Dwarf city Karak Eight Peaks is filled with impressive architecture at a sizeable scale, the problem of course is the fact that it is now inhabited by the Greenskins.

  • Old World Bestiary

    Today at TenTonHammer we present the beginning of our newest page; the Old World Bestiary. Not to be confused with any sort of dirty internet animal site, this page details the inhabitants of the Old World that we can expect to see in WAR. With twenty different species to start ranging from Banshee's to Yhetee's (no relation) this page is what you need to read if you want to know about what to expect in WAR.

    Banshee: When evil women die their spirits can be brought back to haunt the mortal realm, typically returning in the form of a banshee these undead have the ability to kill with their lethal wail. In the Warhammer World Banshees are typically found in the armies of the mysterious Vampire Counts.

  • Get the WAR going!

    GameDaily took time over the weekend to post a one minute preview of the upcoming Warhammer Online.

    People complain that companies build fantasy-based online games pretty much the same way. Gamers level up, kill stuff, get better loot, rinse and repeat. Warhammer: Age of Reckoning (WAR), on the other hand, rips the heart out of that misconception and steps on it. Introducing Realm vs. Realm combat, a combination of Player vs. Player and Player vs. Environment types of game play, this game may rewrite the rules of design for future massively multiplayer online games.

  • Racial Overview Updates

    Just a note, today we've updated our Empire (Human) racial page with more information on the two recently released careers; the Witch Hunter & Knight of the Blazing Sun. As another note we've updated all of our Racial Overview pages to contain the Official EA Mythic description of each faction!

    "The Age of Reckoning begins with a foul Chaos Plague being unleashed throughout the Empire of man. Weakened by the release of this plague; the Empire is only further demoralized by the appearance of a red eclipse in the sky. With its people driven into a panic, the Empire hears news that the Dwarf city of Karak Eight Peaks has fallen to the Orcs, and a great army of chaos masses to the north. As a sign of relief to the dire portents that have befallen the Empire of man, the High Elves appear to lend what assistance they can, however even the Emperor knows his forces are being stretched dangerously thin."

  • Chaos Overview Page

    Today we have yet another Racial Overview Page up, this time for the Chaos Warhosts. Included in this page is links for the three announced careers as well as official EA Mythic information on the faction itself. Be sure to check out this page often as more information is released!

    Composed of the northern tribes of the world; the forces of Chaos are servants of four differing evil gods. In WAR, the forces of Chaos are predominantly allied to the god of Tzeentch; Changer of Ways and god of magic. Long time enemies of the Empire and the forces of Order, Chaos is a tide of well trained and empowered warriors waiting to sweep down from the north and crush all opposition!

  • 2006 In Retrospect

    Well, it seems that 2006 is about to slip right by us. As this year closes, Ratboy takes a moment to look over the finer moments of WAR this year. Ranging from locations to careers, and even E3, all of these topics are touched on.

    It’s been over a year since I took up the reigns as Community Manager for the Warhammer Online TenTonHammer site, and it’s been packed with so much that I’ve been spending the past hour just going over everything that we’ve seen in 2006. With several different news pieces, images, trailers, and other media related updates, 2006 has really been a shining year in the development and “hype raising” of WAR.

  • Career Overview: Empire Witch Hunter & Knight of the Blazing Sun

    Today we here at TenTonHammer have put up our initial pages for the Witch Hunter & Knight of the Blazing Sun. These two newly announced Empire classes have raised quite a stir so we want you to be able to appreciate some glimpses of them just before the New Year.

    If you want to be an armored tank, then this career is for you! Meant to be the typical “Knights in Shining Armor” of the Empire, the Knights of the Blazing Sun are decked out in heavy armor and go around beating things with their sword...
