Mythic Entertainment Announces the Rise of the Tomb Kings Live Event for Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning
The Armies of Order and Destruction Begin the Final Push Towards the Land of the Dead
Mythic Entertainment™, an Electronic Arts Inc. studio, today announced ‘Rise of the Tomb Kings,’ the final live event in the Call to Arms live expansion for Warhammer® Online: Age of Reckoning® (WAR). From June 16 until June 22, the forces of Order and Destruction will race to construct giant airships that will soon transport players into the treacherous deserts of the Land of the Dead.
The winning Realm will have exclusive first access to the new Tomb Kings themed dungeon zone, and the unimaginable wealth it contains, immediately following the conclusion of the ‘Rise of the Tomb Kings’ live event. The more ambitious adventurers will be further recognized for their contribution, with exclusive titles: “Sky Captain” for Order, and “Master of the Air” for Destruction. The dedicated – and lucky – players might also receive the Ravening Cloak, an ultra-rare item drop only available during the live event.
“The Call to Arms continues as the armies of Order and Destruction are getting close to unlocking the secrets to the Land of the Dead,” said Jeff Hickman, Executive Producer for Mythic Entertainment. “’Rise of the Tomb Kings’ will see heroes on both sides of the battle competing for the glory of their Realm so they may be the first to plunder the wealth of the Tomb Kings.”
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. For more information about the game and to download the free 10-day trial, visit www.warhammeronline.com.
