Warhammer Online Heading to Retail
After years of false starts and prolonged development, Warhammer Online is finally heading to store shelves.
The game, which publisher Electronic Arts lauds as having set a "a company record for the most retail pre-orders placed by consumers for a PC title in EA’s 26 year history," opens its servers to prospective players on September 18.
"This is truly a historic day for both EA and Mythic as we prepare to send more copies of WAR to retailers than any other newly launched MMORPG in North America and Europe," said Mythic Entertainment co-founder Mark Jacobs.
"Over the course of our beta, over a million gamers throughout the world sent a clear signal to us -- they want WAR, and we are more than happy to oblige them."
