Mythic Entertainment Introduces
Endless free Trial for Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning

Warhammer Online Further Enhances
Accessibility with New Streaming Free Trial Client and Introduction of New User
Journey Features

Mythic Entertainment today announced
that the critically-acclaimed MMORPG, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (WAR),
has replaced its 10-day time-limited free trial with a new, endless free* trial
program which is now available for download. The new streaming client for the
endless free trial enhances the game’s accessibility and greatly decreases the
download time, making it easier than ever for new players to experience the
never-ending battles of WAR for themselves.

The new WAR endless free trial
replaces the original 10-day time-limited trial program, and gives new and
returning players the opportunity to create and play any of the 24 different
careers to find their perfect character match for use during extended gameplay
if they purchase the game and/or subscribe. The endless free trial limits
players to progress through character level 10 as they explore the tier one
Empire vs. Chaos zones of Nordland and Norsca. In addition, players can explore
the newly added tier one dungeon, Hunter’s Vale, or battle other players in the
instanced scenarios Nordenwatch, Khaine’s Embrace and Gates of Ekrund.

Endless free trial players will
embark on the recently introduced New User Journey, which features enhanced
tutorials and new community elements, such as a “new player” guild, to
streamline the transition of new players into WAR and its vibrant community of

“With the introduction of the
endless free trial and streaming client, we are making it easier than ever for a
new player to join the WAR,” said Jeff Hickman, executive producer, Mythic
Entertainment. “We’ve worked hard to create a more informative and community
driven new user experience, and now we are giving players an unlimited amount of
time to explore the early parts of the game at their own pace. We are confident
that players new and old will find all the enhancements we’ve made to WAR over
the past year worthy of their time and commitment.”

Available now, the new streaming
endless trial client is a seamless way for new users to get into the game. After
an initial download of just over 1GB, additional content streams in the
background as required while playing. All closed 10-day free trial accounts have
been converted to open endless free trial accounts and are ready for returning
players to resume their journeys across the frontlines of WAR.
