Sometimes I hate time zones. I just woke up this morning at 7:30am PST to find a wave of new information regarding Warhammer Online’s release and open beta dates.
From the WAR Herald: Release date is September 18th
* Monthly Subscription: $14.99 USD
* 3-Month Subscription: $41.97 ($13.99 per month)
* 6-Month Subscription: $77.94 ($12.99 per month)
From WarhammerOnline.com: Open Beta can be downloaded beginning August 15th
The Open Beta will be level capped and content restricted. You will be allowed to choose any of the game’s 20 unique careers and advance through rank 20. You will also be free to explore and battle across Tiers 1 and 2 of each army’s homeland. Please note that any characters created during the Open Beta will NOT carry over into the live game as they will be wiped from the servers.
To register for Open Beta:
- After August 15, 2008 visit the Mythic Entertainment Account Management website.
- Create a new Warhammer Online game account.
- When prompted, enter your Open Beta code.
Woot! We have our dates now. The Age of Reckoning is at hand.
