About Warhammer

Games Workshop created the Warhammer world more than 23 years ago, as the setting for its wildly successful tabletop fantasy wargame of the same name. Since then the game has been released in 6 editions, had dozens of supplements, and been the basis for tens of thousands of unique model soldier designs, making it one of the most well documented and detailed fantasy settings in existence. The world itself is a dark and forbidding fantasy realm, where Elves, Orcs, Dwarfs, Undead, and many other races clash constantly in mighty battles seeking domination over each other. Meanwhile, the insidious forces of Chaos strive to undermine the basic fabric of society both from within and by the direct invasion of its legions of daemons, beastmen and warped human champions.

The Warhammer community stretches across the world, supported by Games Workshop’s 320+ stores, 4000+ independent retailers, and many games clubs, tournaments and events such as the annual Games Days in the UK, USA, Canada, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, and Australia. There is also a thriving web community based around the official website and many thousands of fan sites.

About Mythic Entertainment

Dark Age of Camelot is played throughout the world in seven languages. It was launched in Japanese in January 2005, and in April 2005 became the first international MMO localized for Spain.

Meh, I play a little bit of warhammer 40k (only once so far this year) but wouldn't quite call myself a fan of the warhammer universe in general.

Been a long while since I've played a game of WH, and I've always preferred the fantasy vs 40k. Depending on how many years it takes for them to develop this, it might be something I'd at least take the time to look at.

WO has been in development for over 2 years now, nice to know that mythic is picking it up, now I know for a fact I dont wanna buy it. It might have been decent.

edit: How many times have we heard this...

Well heres the thing.. how many games have a realm vs realm combat system?

DAoC, WoW.. and soon to be Warhammer.

They can easily put daoc into the crapper if warhammer pans out better.. making it atleast the second best RvR mmo out there..

They have HUGE potential with WO, IF they stay true to the original game. Before Mythic got it I knew they would, now with it in MJ's hands, who knows what it'll be. Remember this is the same company that is putting out "Imperator" and think its gonna be a hit. I smell a flop.

After 7 years of these style of online games ( 7 years? whenever UO came out; might be 7 ) that Ive played Ive come to be able to semi-predict some of this stuff, who knows though, Ive been wrong before. Only time will tell.

Imperator will most likely flop. it doesn't have a following like Warhammer.

Warhammer has a chance.. but that chance became worse when i read mythic was gonna scrap everything that was already made and restart anew.

Heh, just re-read this post.

Well my prediction of Imperator was spot on. Never even seen the light of day. A good business move for them, but a waste of money.

Im sure I am wrong on WAR now, only because they stayed true to the WH world. Ive only seen one deviation so far ( Male DE Sorcerer ) which is fine. My only issue so far is there is a Troll Slayer in the frikkin trailor AND YOU CANT PLAY ONE! Bastards! One of the coolest WH characters ( though, their goal is to die in combat...so I can see how it doesnt make sense to have a PC of one ).

The Male Sorcerer I think is something they had to do. As it stands Destruction is the most gender restricted. Witch Elves = female only. Orcs = no gender (but male from appearance). Chosen and Marauders = Male Only. I hear Black Guard might be male only as well.

That said.. i also think there was an artist screw up and they made a bunch of concept art for male sorcerers.. which they ended up keeping in after getting the ok from Games Workshop.

Most recently I read a rumor about stealth being added in some form. The two classes mentioned to might be getting it are Witch Elves and Witch Hunters. I am hoping it is an unfounded rumor.
