Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning
continues its worldwide march as Mythic Entertainment today announced that the
fully localized Russian version of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (WAR) will
go live on February 5, 2009. The Russian version of WAR will feature a fully

First launched in North America,
Europe and Oceania in September of 2008, WAR continues to receive praise from
media for innovative features such as Realm vs. Realm gameplay and Public
Quests, picking up numerous year-end critics awards including GameSpy’s MMO Game

“Everyone at Mythic Entertainment is
honored and gratified each time we get the chance to bring the glory of WAR to
those who have yet to experience it,” said Mark Jacobs, co-founder and general
manager of Mythic Entertainment. “In February a whole new force of Russian
recruits will join the ranks of Order and Destruction – and it’s going to be
fantastic.”
