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…

Ex-Warhammer Online Dev Asks EA To Release SP Version

Oh ho, the plot thickens! Or rather, it congeals from thin air, because I suppose there wasn't much of a plot before this. EA yanked the cord on Warhammer Online's servers (and then presumably bit it in half and bathed in its blood), and that was that. The end. Roll credits. But now a former Mythic developer who's currently working on Camelot Unchained has revealed…

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…

Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes: Open Of Beta

I'm amazed Warhammer Online hasn't gone free to play yet. Amazed! I say as much to everyone I meet. "I'm amazed Warhammer Online hasn't gone free to play yet" I said to my dad on the phone only yesterday. "Son, is that you?" he replied. "Is something wrong? What do you need a free hammer for?" Then I hung up. Mythic's underwhelming MMO may be…

The Rat Pack: Playable Skaven In WO 1.4.0

Love rats? Patch 1.4.0 hits the now free-to-play-for-the-first-10-levels Warhammer Online this Thursday, and will bring all kinds of tasty additions. You can read about them here, but to summarise: revamped Realm vs. Realm combat, 4 new playable Skaven classes, a new Skaven dungeon for levels 65+, and two new pay-for Realm vs. Realm packs, one for endgame players that also accelerates character progression and another…

Mail Implicates Unrelated Games In Tragedy?

Shaun C Green directed me at Nostalgia For Infinity picking up The Daily Mail reporting a story in a somewhat strange way. They report on the sad story of a woman apparently who neglected her children and let her dogs starve to death due to her obsession with the board-game Smallworld. Except, in addition to assets from the boardgame, they use an image of Warhammer…

We’re Skaven, We’re Skaven!

Remember the above campaign we ran in the golden age of Rock Paper Shotgun? Well, in the most recent letter from the Mythic Producer Carrie Gouskos she revealed the coming of player controlled Skaven. Not as a faction, but in part of a new Skaven-themed Realm-versus-realm zone, where both Destruction and Order players get a chance to play THE MOST SPLENDID OF WARHAMMER RACES. This…

How Orcward: Mythic Billing Craziness

A lot of people mailed us about this. In short, reports have came in of Mythic's billing system going mental and charging people multiple times for their subscription. Go to the forum to see some of the reports, with some people reporting hundreds of dollars being vacuumed out of their bank accounts. The official advice at the moment is that the vendour will reverse payments…

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…

One Year On: Warhammer Online Rereviewed

Once more unto the breach of reviewing that which is many ways unreviewable... This time around, I'm taking a sober look over on Eurogamer at the Euro-state of Mythic's MMORPG Warhammer Online, nearly a year on from its high-profile launch. You'll find my ruminations lurking over yonder, and including chin-scratchy nuggets such as these: Mythic don't want you to waste your time saving up money…

Free-For-All: Warhammer Online For 10 Days

If you've not yet grasped the squig and tried Mythic's Warhammer Online for yourself, then now might be a good time. The main website has just launched a 10-day free trial for the game. But Europeans are excluded from the offer. And, ah, okay, I missed this completely: Euros have a separate offer entirely. So that's good.

Rush To The Tanks: New Warhammer Online Patch

Mythic have announcified two new careers for Warhammer Online, due to appear this Winter. And they're beefcake. The Empire’s Knight of the Blazing Sun, and the Dark Elf Black Guard will be available to the game's current 750,000 players, as part of the first major patch, 1.1. Discussed by Mark Jacobs in his first State Of The Game address, we've cobbled together the highlights of…

Consolevania Goes To WAR in Series 4

Another one of our favourite things has sort of come back into life. We've only mentioned consolevania in passing before, but the web-TV show (which sprouted TV spin-off Videogaiden) has returned for a series 4. Except rather than their traditional shows, they're doing a rolling-feature model, with youtube videos added as and when they're finished. Thankfully, one of the first three is PC-game related, thus…

Warhammer Online, On The Road, Rocking Out

In a move that's a little less Led Zeppelin and inching into Spinal Tap territory, Mythic have done a punky-metal song about Warhammer and put together a video for it featuring footage from the last two years on the road. And it looks like this... Brief cameos of RPSers Matt Kumar (00:34) and myself (00:36). I'm having some manner of fit.

PC Gaming Is Dying Blahblahblah

Spore has only sold 1 million copies. Warhammer Online has a piffling 500,000 subscribers. Ah well. Might as well call it a day for the old IBM Compatible, eh? Pffffffft. It's been a grand Autumn for PC so far, and with Left 4 Dead, Far Cry 2 and Fallout 3 (shut up) also incoming our beloved maths-box's star isn't going to dim any time soon.…

RPS Warhammer Guilds Update

About time for a general update on all things Guild Based and has generally been pillaging for over a week now. It's still on the ever-busy Karak Hirn. There's been a server cloning thing, which means that we could move the Guild, but general feeling is to stay at Karak - and discussed on the new Warhammer Guild Forums. Equally, Poisoned Sponge has actually got…

RPS Compo: WAR Compo Update

There was a smattering of confusion yesterday with our WAR Collector's Edition compo, regarding who could enter. We're super-sorry, but because this is the GOA edition of the game, it will only work in Europe. So to the rest of the world, understand that we love you, but this one's not for you. However, to the rest of the European continent, you're welcome to enter.…

RPS Compo: Win WAR Collector’s Edition

Here's a rather fabulous thing. GOA have given us three Collector's Editions of Warhammer Online to give away, and they're a bit special. In the enormous box you get, along with a copy of the game (and 30 days' subscription), a 128 page graphic novel (in remarkably expensive-looking hardback), The Art Of Warhammer Online (in an even more expensive-looking and equally hardback book), a Grumlock…
