RPS has posted information about the state of Warhammer Online and all the talk about beta testing and the fact that there's no official word on the monthly sub fees as of yet.
GOA has responded with some good information:
“Pre-ordering a standard edition from most of our partners will not automatically give you Open Beta access as we have said previously. We will however be announcing a list of ‘preferred partners’ who will be selling the pre-order with Open Beta access. A full list of these partners will be included with the main announcement this week, I can confirm that both the EA Store and D2D are preferred partners and so those of you who have already placed an order need not worry that you won’t get what you were offered.”
