EA Mythic has posted information about a battle in the on going Warhammer Online beta. Chaos and Empire is fighting each other and the Imperial Capitol Altdorf is in the spotlight.
Approaching Aldorf: Beta Review
The ongoing war between the forces of the Empire and Chaos continues, and this time around their Elf allies have heeded the call for aid. The battle spills over from Ostland and Troll Country into the war-torn areas of Talabecland and High Pass as WAR approaches Altdorf. Victory is a fickle friend as the battles rage at the gates of the great city. Can the mortal army of Tzeentch push the forces of Empire all the way back to the gates of Altdorf? Will they manage to siege and then sack Altdorf itself?
During this round of Closed Beta, testers fought in bloody frays to determine whether Altdorf would stand or fall against the barrage of Chaos and the Dark Elves in Tier 3 areas. Twelve careers for four races were open to play. The conflict between Order and Destruction neared a crescendo in Tier 4 as players tested the overall Campaign, battling back and forth from fortress to fortress on the road to Altdorf.
Other exciting additions to this phase of testing included:
- The first version of our in-game mail system
- Siege Testing
- Campaign Testing
- Twelve Careers with Career Mastery.
This phase of testing was broken into three parts, beginning during the second week of April and ending during the second week of May.
Part One focused on updated PvE content and careers. While new Open World RvR areas were implemented and available, we stressed that players should test the new career mechanics with templated Rank 20 characters.
Part Two focused on testing the overall campaign itself. We opened Tier Four and offered templated Rank 40 characters to test Open World RvR, Fortresses, and Keeps. This allowed us receive feedback and data on how the ebb and flow of the Campaign actually played out.
