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
