The team at Mythic have announced that they are almost ready to reopen beta for Warhammer Online.
This next phase of the beta will be what they are dubbing a, "Dark Elf sneak peak," and will focus mainly around RvR (Realm V Realm) combat.
We’re almost ready to re-open the WAR Beta, and I know that our Beta Community has been gnashing their teeth in anticipation. Guess what? They should be giddy with excitement because we’ll have an amazing amount of new features and enhancements in the game for them to test, as well as brand new Elf content for them to experience.
Mythic also went onto reveal a little tidbit about Siege Warfare in Warhammer Online, comparing it to Keep Battles in Dark Age of Camelot, saying there will be differences but that anyone who has experienced Keep Battles will understand what Mythic are going for with siege weapons.
While we aren’t ready to publicly discuss Keeps and their siege mechanics in great detail at this time, anyone that has taken part in a Keep battle in Dark Age of Camelot® will have an idea of what we have in store for WAR (though it should be noted that this new Keeps system will differ from the one found in DAoC). The addition of Keeps will bring focus and meaning to Open Field RvR and beta participants should be able to experience this new system in its early stages by the end of the year.
