The Darkest Age Of Camelot: EA Shuts Down Mythic

Awww, this is rather sad. Once upon a time, Mythic created classic MMO Dark Age of Camelot, one of the few real alternatives to EverQuest back in its heyday, and classic MUD Dragon's Gate before that. Later it also warred out the warrisomely war-packed Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, which recently went bye-bye itself. Since then, Mythic's been in a strange spot, unable to find…

Nail In The Coffin: Warhammer Online Going Offline

Warhammer Online, we hardly knew ye. OK actually that's not true at all. But still, it is a bit weird when you realize that Mythic's fantastical dig through Games Workshop's toy meticulously crafted figure chest launched in 2008. Five years is hardly a mail-clad, blood-drenched spring chicken, but it is rather young by MMO standards. And yet, here we are. Mythic's deal with Games Workshop has…

Endwar – Warhammer: Wrath Of Heroes Shutting Down

Scene: A graveyard. Tombstones crisscross its every inch in eerily pristine rows. SimCity approaches one, visibly impatient, nearly stamping on a single daisy atop fresh loam. It's followed by a more somber-looking Mass Effect 3.  SimCity: "Come on, let's just get this over with." Mass Effect: "Hey now, settle down. We're here to pay our respects." SimCity: "Oh boo-hoo. Some Warhammer MOBA wannabe couldn't hack…

EA BioWare Mythic Moon Unit Now Just: Mythic

Mythic have been through more name changes than Prince. The team who first came to attention through their MMO Dark Age Of Camelot as Mythic Entertainment saw their first change when they were snapped up by EA. Their development on the not-so-successful Warhammer: Age Of Reckoning had caught the attention of the big publisher in 2006, and was eventually branded with the name "EA Mythic".…

Warhammer Online: Wrath Of Heroes Trailer

Freshly announced at Gamescom from EA comes Warhammer Online: Wrath Of Heroes. It's an attempt by Mythic to take their MMO tech and reinvent it as a three-way, 6 v 6 v 6 battle game. It will also be free-to-play. The graphics are changed, with a more cel-shaded theme, which you can see in the trailer below.

Play Warhammer Online Free Forever

Well, up to the first 10 levels anyway. It's quite the move; replacing the traditional 10-day trial, you're now able to play Warhammer Online as much as you like. You can't go past the first ten levels, but that still allows you to try all the character classes to see if any fixes. Also, rather than the enormo-client download, the game's been re-jigged to work…

GOA At War – More Warhammer Publishing Worries

As you can see below, we're really looking forward to Warhammer Online. We've been playing it lots already, and our impression is that it's the first MMO to take a step in front of WoW. That's a big deal. We're just a bit concerned by the current state of affairs when it comes to EU distribution. As we've covered quite heavily, there's the internal confusion…

E3: The Trailers – Warhammer Online

Siege battles in Mythic's upcoming MMO Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning - Crikey, what a pile-on. These climatic PvP tussles will be quite the thing to witness. There is of course an elephant in the room, and I'm not going to be the one to mention it. Play nice when it inevitably comes up in comments though, gentlemen - you can't fight in here, this…

Warhammer Online Content Cuts

Some huge changes to Warhammer Online have been revealed in this interview on MMORPG. The number of capitol cities available on release will drop from six to two (Empire, Chaos). Mythic boss Mark Jacobs explained: “We wanted to make our Capital Cities the best cities in any MMO. We think we’re doing that, but it came at a price and that price is that the…

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…

Warhammer Online: Autumn… No, Really

The Warhammer Online open beta can't be too far off, right? Well it might still be a few more months away, given that the game has now slipped to "Autumn 2008." Nevertheless, pre-ordering the retail version of the game commenced today at 3pm, or thereabouts, and it gets you a guaranteed beta slot. If you want to get a place in the pre-launch Empire then…

Warhammer Online Offline

You may be aware that Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning has been undergoing a closed Beta. Your awareness is a day out of date. Mythic have confirmed that they're closing their Beta for a couple of months so they can - I paraphrase loosely - "Have A Little Think". Closed betas closing aren't exactly commonplace, so this has lead to a mass of speculation. Mythic's…
