Electronic Arts today unveiled the first details of a Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning Collector’s Edition. This premium, limited edition of Mythic’s MMO will include bonus in-game content and unique collectibles unavailable elsewhere, including an exclusive Games Workshop miniature.
Only 60,000 copies of the Collector’s Edition will be available in North America. Those who pre-order will receive additional exclusives. The Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning Collector’s Edition will cost $79.99.
The Collector’s Edition will include:
- An Exclusive Games Workshop Miniature — Grumlok and Gazbag: From the Age of Reckoning to your tabletop battle, this miniature is based on original characters from the MMO and designed by Games Workshop specifically for the Collector’s Edition. This official Warhammer metal miniature depicts the Greenskin warboss, GRUMLOK, and his shaman, GAZBAG (some assembly and painting required).
- An Original Graphic Novel called Warhammer Online: Prelude to War: The forces of Order and Destruction collide under the red Chaos moon…. Commissioned exclusively for the Collector’s Edition, Warhammer Online: Prelude to War is a full-color, 128-page hardcover graphic novel that sets the stage for the start of the game. Written by acclaimed Games Workshop writer Graham McNeill, the oversized book is richly illustrated by Chad Hardin, Joe Abraham, Rahsan Ekedal, Tony Parker and Kevin Hopgood. Each of the graphic novel’s six chapters tells a unique story about the armies in the game, and together they detail the events leading up to the Age of Reckoning.
- An Art Book called “The Art of Warhammer Online”: This is a collection of art that gave birth to the Age of Reckoning, all contained in a 224-page hardcover collection of original art. Each of the glossy, full-color pages showcases concept art and offers a glimpse at a world in the making.

- Bonus In-Game Content: Quests, Rewards and Titles: New adventures and just rewards await players on the battlefields of WAR. Purchasers of the Collector’s Edition will begin their adventures in the Age of Reckoning with 12 bonus quests awaiting them in their Tome of Knowledge. Each quest offers an in-game reward, as well as a unique character title, to those who complete the challenges before them.
- Bonus In-Game Content: Character Heads: Stand out in a crowd with a unique look, as the WAR Collectorr’s Edition includes 12 bonus heads for additional character customization. Each race gets a truly distinctive look (with male and female versions) that is sure to turn heads on the battlefields and be the envy of everyone in the army.
