Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning

  • Career Overview: Chaos Zealot

    If you still hadn't seen it from the December newsletter, we have our own Class overview page for the Chaos Zealot up. This new class has very little information released on it thus far so it's mostly speculation at this point. Expect to see this page updated rather quickly as more information's released.

    Based on the visuals we have so far, it seems that the Zealots of Chaos have little to no armor and use only small arms such as daggers.

  • New Zone Overview: Nordland

    Today we've thrown up our own location page for the newly announced starting zone of Nordland. In this zone new players of the Empire will be pitted against the marauding forces of Chaos in a battle for survival.

    As the “newb” zone for the Empire there is a lot of things going on in Nordland. Hampered by the continual raids of Chaos forces, the men of this northern Empire settlement are constantly on guard and likely the players will have to be as well. While unlike many other zones in WAR there aren’t too many factions aside from the standard battle going on in the zone; Chaos & Empire. This place is a simple starting zone for Empire soldiers and will likely test their mettle against what will no doubt not be their last encounter against the forces of Tzeentch.

    More is just a click away!

  • “You can eventually, if you're good enough, fight and capture the enemy's king and take him back to your own capital city.”

    GameZone has updated their site with Part II of their Warhammer Online interview.

    “The second type is what we call battlefields. Battlefields are objectives within the skirmish areas that are intended to provide a focal point for combat. For example, I might enter a skirmish area, and in the distance I might see a large tower. I know that by going to that tower from my realm, I can gain bonuses for my entire realm. So I go to that tower, capture it for myself and gain those bonuses. The enemy wants the same thing. So the enemy’s going to come and fight with me over this.

  • Attack, Destroy, and Rule the World of “Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning”

    GameZone has posted a Q & A with Senior Producer Jeff Hickman and Creative Director Paul Barnett. find out what they were able to learn about the combat system of the game.

    “RvR really does set the game apart in that it is truly above and beyond what we would normally call PvP (Player vs. Player). You have a realm of friends behind you. They’re always your realm of friends, they’re always there to help you. We invested in the game full of realm pride, where you really are encouraged to defend your realm, to defend your land, to defend your capital city from the incursions that are always coming your way. Realm vs. Realm is a very unique feature that we’ve implemented in a very deep way, again from the beginning through every area of the game.”

  • What Makes WAR Unique

    GamersInfo has updated their site with this interesting presentation/interview with EA Mythic.

    The call took the format of a presentation – “what makes WAR unique?” – followed by a Q&A session of questions that had been e-mailed in. Jeff Hickman, senior producer of WAR, handled most of the questions, with help from Paul Barnett, the creative director for WAR and Games Workshop liaison to EA/Mythic. Jeff handled a lot of the “fact” side, as he put it, while Paul – as excited and outspoken as ever – answered a lot of the “flavor” side.

  • Greenskin Racial Overview Page

    Today we have a new update to the site with the addition of the Greenskin Racial Overview Page. This page details some general background on the Greenskins as well as links to all of the classes, and information from other sites as well. If you're a fan of Orcs & Goblins, don't miss out on this!

    Consisting of the physically strong Orcs and the diminutive Goblins, the Greenskin races are perhaps one of the greatest threats facing the Old World. As they are unable to muster under the banner of a single leader, the Orcs and Goblins continue to be a threat that can be maintained by the other races, but for how long?
