Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning News - GamesWorkshop Q&A

Posted by Dana Massey on May 22, 2006  | 21 comments in our forums

Erik Mogensen, the Licensing Manager for GamesWorkshop, answers a few of our questions about Warhammer Online. WAR is currently the top hyped game on our list. Along with the interview are four exclusive screenshots of the title. Games Workshop has created a rich history with Warhammer, what kind of direction did you give Mythic in terms of translating it into an MMO?

Erik Mogensen: We didn’t so much give them a direction, as discuss each other’s opinions on how to marry the Warhammer IP with MMO gameplay. It was apparent very quickly that we agreed on the most fundamental concept – that in order to succeed, WAR needed to be both a great MMO and a great use of the Warhammer IP. Both companies agree that WAR needs to forge its own identity as a Warhammer game, rather than try to replicate the look and feel of the tabletop game, or the pen and paper RPG, or the novels we publish, etc. It sounds very simple, but I think for both of us it was a great first step to realize that we had a shared vision.
