The EA Mythic team--despite being very busy--updates us on all the progress that's been made testing and developing Warhammer Online. The release is still uncertain according to one of the members of their team.
The latest beta build had it's focus on Dark Elves vs High Elves PVP. A bit more lore is displayed as well and there's been beta journals to feast our eyes on. It's too early (and not possible to say regardless) to say how WAR will turn out. They certainly take a different approach on testing the game. Usually most games keep the game open as much as possible, which, WAR is only up for certain time periods, so-called focused testing. Time will tell how that will affect the game. Hopefully positively, though.
The next build of the Warhammer Online beta will be the focus of Empire and Chaos.
