The Ruthless Orc Choppa and Dwarf Slayer Answer the Call to Arms

Paris, France– 17th March 2009.

The Call to Arms has sounded, and the Realms of Order and Destruction have welcomed two new combatants to the frontlines of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (WAR)– the head-bashin’ Orc Choppa and oath-sworn Dwarf Slayer. Playable from the 18th March, these new careers are brutal, unrelenting fighters who will stop at nothing to claim victory over their opponents on the Realm vs. Realm battlefields of WAR.

The tattooed Slayer is the manifestation of the Dwarfs’ obsession with honour, seeking only a heroic and honourable death in combat. However, dying quietly is simply not in his nature. In WAR, the Slayer is a ruthless and terrifying fighter, throwing himself into battle with no regard for his own well-being. He is a force to be reckoned with and relies on his ever-escalating rage to power each swing of his dual axes.

The ornery and savage Choppa is an offensive juggernaut that embodies the love of a good fight found in every Orc. He has a one-track mind that is dead set on wreaking havoc on enemy lines and bashin' heads! Driven by an inexplicably strong bloodlust, the Choppa is a whirlwind of destruction on the battlefield with a…debatable sense of self-preservation.

These two new careers come to reinforce the plethora of updates and changes that have stepped into the Age of Reckoning:

• The recently added Knight of the Blazing Sun and Black Guard tank careers

• New easy, medium, and hard PQs designed for different group sizes and skill levels

• Increased experience gain in Tiers 3 and 4

• New Influence rewards earned in Open RvR

• A new Domination system to determine Tier 4 zone control

• Frequent, fun and rewarding live events

• New and improved Guild rewards

• Improvements to overall performance and server stability

• Official European WAR Forums

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.
