About Warhammer(r) Online: Age of Reckoning(tm) (WAR)

War is everywhere in Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (WAR), the new

fantasy MMORPG from the creators of Dark Age of Camelot(tm). Based on

Games Workshop's wildly successful Warhammer tabletop fantasy war game,

this world provides a rich setting for hundreds of thousands of players

to experience the epic nature of war and the glory of battle.

Players are thrust into a grim world of perpetual conflict to fight for

the Realms of Order (Dwarfs, High Elves, and Empire) or Destruction

(Greenskins, Dark Elves, and Chaos). Next generation Realm vs. Realm(tm)

game play ensures that players are never fighting alone. With an army of

allies at their back, players will defend their homeland, invade enemy

Realms, and ultimately lead the siege of their enemy's Capital City.

Every aspect of the game - every player, every quest, every encounter,

and every battle - can turn the tide of the ongoing war and mean victory

for a player's Realm!

For the first time ever, players can engage in Public Quests(tm) -

multi-stage, communal quests to be completed by allied players fighting

together against overwhelming odds. They can also embark on an epic

quest to complete the Tome of Knowledge and unlock Warhammer lore,

detailed monster information, new abilities, rewards, and major story

plotlines. Drawing from a quarter century of highly detailed source

material, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning will bring Games Workshop's

fantasy world to life in a way that will allow players to create

characters destined for great deeds on the field of battle.
