Mythic Entertainment has announced that its MMORPG Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (WAR) will ship for PC on Sept. 18. On that day, WAR will open its North American, European and Oceanic servers.
Gamers who pre-order WAR in North America will get a few special goodies above and beyond their non-American brethren, including open beta admission, a live game head start and bonus in-game items.
Based on Games Workshop’s tabletop fantasy war game, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning features “Realm vs. Realm” (RvR) gameplay that immerses players in a world of perpetual conflict for years to come.
Fans looking forward to laying siege to their enemy’s capital city will have several pricing options (see below). Additionally, collectible 30- and 60-day prepaid Game Time Cards will be available at many game retailers. WAR subscription options include:
- Monthly Subscription: $14.99 USD
- Three-Month Subscription: $41.97 ($13.99 per month)
- Six-Month Subscription: $77.94 ($12.99 per month)

- Open beta admission: Pre-order customers can experience the glory of battle and the thrill of WAR by participating in the open beta test.
- Head Start program: Players can begin their adventures in the Age of Reckoning before the game’s official launch.
