Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning News - Press Conference

Posted by Jon Wood on Dec 18, 2006  | 39 comments in our forums

On Thursday, News Editor Garrett Fuller took in a telephone Press Conference being held by EA Mythic for their upcoming MMORPG, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning. He reports on what exactly Paul Barnett and Jeff Hickman had to say.

Being only a call, this press conference was a little different. Fortunately, Paul Barnett and Jeff Hickman gave us a wealth of knowledge and insight into Warhammer Online. Trying to follow Jeff's approach to the technical game mechanics and Paul's wild eyed views on Warhammer creates quite a journey. If there ever was an Abbott and Costello of the MMO world it is certainly Paul and Jeff. We also have to thank Eddiemae Jukes of Kohnke Communications for hosting and managing the call. No easy task when these two get talking about Warhammer. So let's get to the point, there's a W.A.R. brewing and I am not talking about some dwarven keg of new ale, I am talking about battles, killing, RvR, PvP, and the ability to cut off your opponent's head and stick it on your guild's banner!

Jeff Hickman is the Senior Producer of Warhammer Online at EA Mythic and the lead producer on the project. Many of the game play, interface, and mechanics questions were fielded by Jeff throughout the call. Paul Barnett is the Creative Director of W.A.R. and in his own words, "a waving monkey from the UK". Paul is here to spout Warhammer lore until the "Americans make my game." Paul was able to answer some great lore questions about the IP and how many elements will work into the game.
