Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning

[edit] Background

A terrible Chaos Plague defiles his lands, ravaging the populace and weakening his armies. Meanwhile, the Dwarf holds in the nearby World's Edge Mountains have come under siege by a massive greenskin horde. Honor-bound by an ancient oath, the ruler of the greatest nation of men in the Old World has dispatched several regiments to assist the embattled Dwarfs, further depleting the Empire's already thin defenses.

In this dark hour, a new threat appears. Under a sky darkened by a crimson eclipse, a great warhost erupts from the wastelands of the north. Bearing the banner of Tzeentch, Changer of the Ways, the army of Chaos marches south for the borders of the Empire, crushing everything in its path.

[edit] Features

  • Based on Games Workshop's popular Warhammer fantasy world. Dominated by force of arms and magic, this world provides a rich setting for hundreds of thousands of players to experience the epic nature of war and the glory of battle.
  • Join one of six Armies and fight for the Armies of Order (Dwarf, High Elf and Empire) or the Armies of Destruction (Greenskin, Dark Elf, or Chaos). Wage war across three unique battlefronts.
  • Next generation Realm vs. Realm game system integrating both PvP combat and PvE quests on the same map in support of the greater war.
  • Engage in four levels of RvR combat:
  • Skirmishes: Incidental PvP combat
  • Battlefields: Objective-based battles in the game world
  • Scenarios: Instanced, point-based battles balanced with NPC Dogs of War
  • Campaigns: The invasion of enemy lands culminating in the assault on their capital city
  • Undertake a wide variety of PvE quest types related to an army's war efforts, including:
  • Public quests that benefit from the participation of the entire army
  • Conflict quests that pit players against an enemy with opposing goals
  • Branching quests that let you choose the outcome of the quest and your reward
  • Xmas quests that reward exploration with high value loot
  • A robust combat system introduces Player Tactics (earned powers you equip prior to battle) and Morale Skills (combat options that increase in power when the momentum of battle is in your favor).
  • Player models that change to reflect the relative power of a character (i.e., Orcs grow in size and Dwarfs' beards get longer). Customizable armor and a visual guild system allow a player to make their character truly unique.
  • Embark on an epic quest to complete the Tome of Knowledge and unlock Warhammer lore, detailed monster information, and major story plotlines.
  • Online play requires a subscription and Internet connection.
