  • Jadawin says:

    I want a pre-order for the CE!

  • Graktar says:

    Bah, access denied by my work’s web filter. Sometimes that thing makes no sense. Actually, frequently it makes no sense. I can’t access some blogs on your list because the web filter has them marked as porn. 0.o

    Anyway, the announcement is nice and all, but where can I plunk my money down? Once I have it pre-ordered I can hopefully forget about the game until open beta.

    Speaking of which . . . guaranteed access to OPEN beta? Umm. If it’s limited invitation, is it really open? Or is this open in the ‘no NDA’ sense?

  • Keen says:

    Mythic’s open beta’s have always been somewhat different from the “let everyone in” open beta’s that some games have. Open beta for WAR will be invite only, and I assume the NDA would be down at that point.

  • Syp says:

    Sweet… would love to know what those in-game items are! Nice find Keen!

  • Keen says:

    I think someone translated that they are a Ring and a Camp that lets you rest any time with your friends. The accuracy of that information is unknown.

  • Keen says:

    Turns out that this was a pretty big leak of information that was intended to be announced next week in a convention in Paris. Mark Jacobs had this to say:


    Kobayashi Maru.

    In other words, no matter what I say on this issue, it’s a no-win scenario. And unlike Kirk, I can’t reprogram the Internet.

    And no, this is not an early April’s Fool joke, I’m not Void, we neither authorized a release/leak, leaked anything ourselves, hinted, encouraged, etc. any leak. Given that we have a show in Europe next week, the last thing we would have wanted is something like this to happen now. You’ll have to wait till next week for the official pre-order/CE release information and then I’ll be happy to discuss *exactly* what is in our CE.

    I will say, as I’ve been saying all along, that when I can talk about the CE/pre-order program, I think you guys will be very happy. I’m glad, after reading through this thread two or three times (and taking a few deep breaths) that you guys seem to be liking what they say is our pre-order/CE program/box.

    As to our Asian partners, nothing I can talk about for those territories yet, not even next week.

    Some days my job really sucks…


  • Tarvold says:

    i preordered my copy at gamestop months ago, securing my copy of the CE.

  • Bartlebe says:

    I am usually a slave to reviews as well as a die-hard “buy something after its released to make sure it sells well” person BUT with this game, I am seriously thinking about making an exception.

    I also never buy CE things as well but then again, with this game, I think I might just have to break the trend. This is to good or a box set and the game looks to be to fricken sweet for me to resist.

    Also: I love our games last night. You and your brother are really good. I felt like I was on top of my game. I managed to sqeeze out some wins with game and watch!

  • […] preorder box have surfaced on a site that challenges my monolinguistic nature — but happily Keen was there to translate. It looks as though preorders will be guaranteed a place in the open beta […]

  • Syncaine says:

    mmmm so close now. Nice find guys!

  • Keen says:

    More information on the items:

    Knight’s Portable Camp: “receives your tired soul and heals your wounds between battles.”

    Guards of the Amber Ring: “improves your attributes” and casts “Touch of Earth”

  • Aaron says:

    Maybe if we quit blogging, they’ll let us into beta now. =/

    I’ll probably pre-order it if it comes with open beta access.

    By the way, my friend Paul (Genda) did an interview with Mythic’s Community Coordinator, James Nichols. If his site gets about the same traffic as mine, then that interview probably slipped under the radar of a lot of WO fans.

  • Keen says:

    I would have asked James why Mark has assumed the role of Community Manager lately. 😛

  • Genda says:

    I might have too, although he’s been really busy and actually has had the questions for a while. He had a chance to answer last week, so that’s when I posted it but the questions were a little older than that.

    @Aaron – Thanks for the pimpage. 😀

  • adam says:

    Its £60 at play.com … thats ridiculous imo
