The Warhammer Online Saga Ending In December 2013

Warhammer: Age of Reckoning, the online MMORPG is leaving the hands of EA and Mythic at the end of the year and this points to the game being shutdown as a result.

I never actually got fully into this game due to lack of funds but I did play the Free Forever trial and had a lot of fun with friends when playing. It will be sad to see it go as I was holding out for the whole thing going Free To Play soon.

Through an open letter they talked about some of the awesome things that were in the pipeline that never were, including a F2P model that would be rolled out to impress the Asian market. As well as that an expansion looking at the Vampires of Sylvania was on the cards too. Why none of this happened, I guess we’ll never know.

While this is certainly a video gaming story it was still ace to be immersed in the world of Warhammer Fantasy with your friends and they told an ace story. I guess EA were afraid of putting more money into this, especially with Creative Assembly and Sega picking up the Warhammer Fantasy license.

That seems to be where the future lies for Warhammer Fantasy. A Total War style game would go down well I reckon!
