WAR Open Beta starting 2 days early for some!

Those who participated in the Preview weekend get to play open beta two days early!  Huzzah!  That means tomorrow morning the 12 days of glorious WAR begin!  From the WAR Herald:


WAR is Coming and the world is ready. Hundreds of thousands of players will descend upon the Age of Reckoning this Sunday, September 7th.

In order to make this world-wide event the best it can be we’re welcoming all Preview Weekend attendees back for two more days to rev things up and get the party started. We invite all Preview Weekend players to join us for Preview Weekend+ this Friday, 9/5 and Saturday, 9/6 starting tomorrow morning.

This epic weekend will be one to remember as you herald in Open Beta and the Age of Reckoning to the entire world!

The tides of WAR are coming…we’ll see you on the battlefiled!

There is also a cool new “Fight for the forces of Destruction” gameplay video that I think they used for PAX.

Special note for the Happy Fun Guyz:  We’ll be forming the guild tomorrow.  Server name To Be Announced.  Anyone wishing to join us please feel free to visit our forums.  Heck, even if you’re not interested in joining us you can find a great gaming community to hang out with there.

  • @Bludkraze: As I understand it we get to play tomorrow as long as we were in the preview weekend. Your account should still be flagged with the preview weekend.

  • Is the regular open beat for anyone, or do you have to pre-order to get into it? I’m really interested in WAR, but I want to see how the client performs on my machine before I consider purchasing it, or even dropping a buck on a pre-order if possible.

  • Anyone else unable to get past the patcher? I know that the servers are down currently, but I used to be able to get to the server select window. After patching, it now crashes shortly after the screen turns back and the logo is supposed to show up.

  • I’ve been in the beta for awhile and my graphics don’t looks as plain as they are in the video. I wonder why all of Mythics in-game videos look crappy.

  • I hope and believe this is a way of showing those people who got taken back a bit by the broken pathing and GCD bug that the they have fixed things.

    Would be cool atleast!

  • So this is only for US people? EU players don’t get anything again .___. we didn’t even have a preview weekend. Still two days to wait. I wanna play again.
