Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning is the Most Recent offering from EA Mythic – that the developers of this hugely successful MMORPG Dark Ages of Camelot. Regarded by most as the leading developer of online games, EA Mythic has teamed up with Games Workshop to make a persistent online RPG set in the warhammer 40k painting service.

The official, and catchy, abbreviation for your brand new match is WAR – surely less of a mouthful that the complete title. The match is set to be published during the next quarter of 2008 amidst much anticipation and hype.

Combat as the name suggests WAR is a battle focused MMORPG. Players can determine if they would like to fight for the good guys or the bad ones. From the world of Warhammer this translates into two main factions.

The Armies of Order sponsor humans, called Empire, Dwarfs and High Elves. Opposing people who seek peace would be the Greenskins (Goblins and Orcs), Black Elves and follows of Chaos. These less ethical races form the Armies of Destruction

The whole game is set around Realm versus Realm combat. Those familiar with EA Games Red Alert series might remember the worldwide map that monitored faction successes and losses for every game played online. Anticipate a comparable system with WAR, albeit a far prettier and much more comprehensive edition.

PvP and PvE Most MMORPG players don’t delight in the Player versus Player facets of games in order an attempt to keep everyone happy, it’s likely to contribute to your armies overall advancement through extensive PvE (Player vs Environment) situations.

Interestingly Warhammer Online will contain extensive use of instancing from the sport. Instancing is in which a digital sandbox is made only for you and your pals, meaning that external interference from other players is removed. A lot of men and women like this system and it have been used to great effect in recent names like Guild Wars. However, there are people, who oppose instancing, asserting it lessens the truth that MMORPG’s promise to offer you.
