Bitter Rivals Duke it Out on the Battlefields and Official Forums of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning

Mythic Entertainment today announced the start of Bitter Rivals, the first in-game event marking the start of the new Call to Arms live expansion for its award-winning MMORPG, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (WAR). Bitter Rivals, which takes place from March 3rd to March 10th, gives players a chance to earn valuable in-game rewards and unlock the new Dwarf Slayer and Orc Choppa careers for head start play.

The live event includes the new Twisting Tower, an exclusive Realm vs. Realm Scenario which will only be available during Bitter Rivals. The scenario, which takes place in a ruined Chaos temple above a perilous vortex in the Chaos Wastes, pits Order against Destruction as they battle for control of the temple while avoiding the purging fires of a vengeful god.

Bitter Rivals marks the start of the massive Call to Arms live expansion that will continue over the next few months with additional live events and new in-game content. The Call to Arms culminates with the launch of the Land of the Dead, a massive new dungeon zone set in the deserts of the Tomb Kings.

To further spread the Call to Arms far and wide, Mythic has launched the official WAR forums at http://www.warhammeronline.com/forums. Open to members of the community, the official WAR forums are a place where players can congregate to find information about the game, provide feedback, interact with the development team, talk RvR strategy and celebrate their love of WAR.

Based on the popular tabletop war game from Games Workshop, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning features revolutionary Realm vs. Realm conflict that will provide players with an engaging battleground for years to come. Available now for PC, WAR is rated“T” for Teen by the ESRB.
