The More Things Change…

…the more they look like World Of Warcraft. Here’s a CLOSED BETA FOOTAGE video of a load of things going on in Warhammer Online. Orks and dwarves bashing each other, a demon having a stroll, cannons a-firing, a giant mysteriously committing suicide.

Thanks GameTrailers. We won’t lay siege to your castle any time soon.

To be fair to Warhammer Online, there’s almost no chance that RPS aren’t going to play it. However, I am beginning to wonder whether the grit and nastiness of the original Climax attempt at this game was actually a better option. I’m sure Games Workshop had good, commercial reasons to can the game, and reports from inside Climax were… not good. However: compare and contrast. Mmm.
