Warhammer(R) Online: Age Of Reckoning(TM) To Invade Games Convention In Leipzig

Featuring the Long-Awaited Unveiling of the Elves

EA Mythic’s highly-anticipated massively-multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), Warhammer® Online: Age of Reckoning™ (WAR), will be playable in the GOA booth at Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany on August 22-26. A press conference featuring Senior Producer, Jeff Hickman, and Creative Director, Paul Barnett, will be held in the booth on Wednesday, August 22 from 11am–12pm to reveal exclusive first details about High Elves and Dark Elves, the final two armies in WAR.

“This is information fans have been asking for so we are incredibly excited to unveil the last two armies in WAR,” said Jeff Hickman, Senior Producer for EA Mythic.“We have a lot of art and information to reveal and we could not think of a better venue than Games Convention to share these details with the growing Warhammer community.”

In addition, Games Convention attendees will be able to experience Warhammer Online’s innovative Realm versus Realm™ gameplay, new Greenskin and Dwarven starting zones, and never-before-seen content and features. The game’s new lighting system will also be on full display giving the world a dramatic new look. The GOA booth will be located in Hall 3, Booth A20.

Based on Games Workshop’s epic and longstanding tabletop fantasy war game, WAR features revolutionary Realm vs. Realm® (RvR) gameplay that immerses players in a world of perpetual conflict. In Europe, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning will be published by GOA (online games department of France Telecom), the European publisher of EA Mythic’s Dark Age of Camelot, and is scheduled for release in early 2008.
