the First Live Expansion for Warhammer
Online: Age of Reckoning

The Armies of WAR
Prepare to Go Berserk Over Dwarf Slayer and Orc Choppa Careers, New
‘Land of the Dead’ Dungeon Zone, and Live Events

Jan. 29, 2009
– Mythic Entertainment, an
Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) studio, today announced the new
“Call to Arms” live expansion for its award-winning
MMORPG, Warhammer®
Online: Age of Reckoning® (WAR)
. Call to Arms will
introduce an array of new content for WAR players, including two highly
anticipated new careers – the Orc Choppa and the Dwarf Slayer
– and a new dungeon zone called “Land of the
Dead,” set in the desert realm of the Tomb Kings.

The Call to Arms live expansion, set to roll out for free in early
March and running through the beginning of June, will also include
three in-game live events, a new Realm vs. Realm™ (RvR)
Scenario, added functionality to the Realm Wars section of the WAR
website, the opening of the official WAR Forums, and a new free trial
version of the game.

“The launch of Warhammer
Online: Age of Reckoning
was only the first step in our
ongoing quest to make a great MMORPG that players will enjoy for years
to come. Over the next few months, we are going to be treating our
players to the first of our ‘live expansions’
planned for the game,” said Mark Jacobs, VP and general
manager of Mythic Entertainment. “With the addition of new
careers and a huge Tomb Kings dungeon that is the spiritual successor
to the Dark Age of
™ dungeon, Darkness Falls, Call to Arms
is an outstanding example of the massive amount of free content we are
committed to delivering to WAR
players now and in the future.”

Bitter Rivals Answer the
Call to Arms!

The Orc Choppa and Dwarf Slayer may be bitter enemies, but they have at
least one thing in common: they live, eat, and breathe close-quarters
melee combat. Choppas are ornery and savage, with a one track mind dead
seat on bashin’ heads! This savage dedication makes them
ferocious fighters, wreaking havoc throughout enemy lines purely for
the sake of satisfying their own self-indulgent bloodlust.

The Slayer is driven by a solemn oath to atone for past sins through an
honorable death in combat. However, Dwarfs are a stubborn folk and
dying quietly is simply not in their nature. Slayers therefore become
ruthless and terrifying fighters, throwing themselves into battle with
no regard for their own well-being.

“The Orc Choppa and Dwarf Slayer are two of the most iconic
characters in the Warhammer universe, and I have no doubt style="font-style: italic;">WAR fans will go
berserk for them,” said Jeff Hickman, executive producer of
Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning. “Choppas represent the
pure anarchy that the Greenskins embody, and the crazed,
mohawk-sporting Slayers are their ideal archenemy. It won’t
be long before you see both of them adding a new level of insanity to
the Age of Reckoning!”

Based on the popular tabletop war game from Games Workshop, style="font-style: italic;">Warhammer Online: Age of
Reckoning features revolutionary Realm vs. Realm conflict
that will provide players with an engaging battleground for years to
come. Available now for PC, WAR is rated “T” for
Teen by the ESRB.
