Warhammer Online Turns One-Year-Old! Sets Celebration Plans for September

Players Celebrate with Wild Hunt Live Event, Weekend Scenarios, Veteran Rewards, Experience/Renown Bonus and More

Mythic Entertainment today announced the celebratory activities planned for the upcoming one year anniversary of the critically acclaimed MMORPG, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (WAR). The celebration kicks-off on August 31st with the introduction of a special new live event – The Wild Hunt, and continues all September with special weekend-only scenarios, a month-long 20% Experience/Renown bonus, special in-game items for all players, veteran rewards, and much more.

“This anniversary marks a major milestone for WAR, the Mythic development team, and our fantastic community of players,” said Jeff Hickman, Executive Producer of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning. “We could think of no better way of marking this occasion than by celebrating our success with our fans for the entire month of September. We’ve got new content to share with the Wild Hunt live event, special versions of popular scenarios, and a 20% experience and renowned bonus, plus, players can get special rare drops, veteran rewards, fireworks, Halfling pies, and exploding stout! Now that is a party Warhammer style!”

The Wild Hunt live event, taking place from August 31 – September 7, 2009, pits the forces of Order and Destruction against the ultimate quarry in the new instanced dungeon, The Hunter’s Vale.

Following the Wild Hunt live event, special weekend-only events are planned with special versions of the Mourkain Temple (September 11-14), Gates of Ekrund (September 18-21) and Temple of Isha (September 25-28) scenarios.

Throughout September’s celebration, exclusive anniversary items, including Halfling Pies and the Jubilee Cloak, will be delivered via in-game mail to all players. Fans that have waged non-stop war for the past year will be rewarded with a special veteran’s reward, the WAR Aegis, and unique title, Weapon of WAR. In addition to all players receiving a 20% experience and renown bonus throughout September, enemies defeated in RvR combat will drop fireworks, exploding stout and other unique limited edition anniversary items.

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 and rated “T” for Teen by the ESRB, WAR will be available for the Mac in the fall of 2009.
