Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning
is about to get its first expansion. The so-called "Call to Arms" expansion isn't something you'll buy in stores, though - it's a batch of new content that will be rolled out over the course of three months.
Along with the press release announcing the expansion, EA provided a release schedule for the new content. Among the additions are two new character classes and a Realm vs. Realm PVP scenario:
'Call to Arms: Bitter Rivals' Live Event (March): Successful
completion allows head start access to the new Orc Choppa and Dwarf
Slayer careers. The event will also include the new Chaos-themed RvR
Scenario, Twisting Tower.
Two New Careers Join WAR (March): The Orc Choppa and Dwarf Slayer
answer the Call to Arms.
'Call to Arms: Beyond the Sands' Live Event (April): Details to be
'Call to Arms: Rise of the Tomb Kings' Live Event (May): The race
between Order and Destruction players begins to unlock the Land of the
Dead for their Realm.
'Land of the Dead' Opens (June): The deserts of Nehekhara open to
players with the addition of a new RvR-gated dungeon zone. To gain
access to the Land of the Dead, opposing Realms must battle for
control of the zone to access dozens of new Public Quests, instanced
lairs, and a massive new Tomb Kings dungeon to plunder in search of
the Casket of Souls.
The press releases also notes that "a new free trial version of the game" is in the works as well. WAR
launched back on September 18th and can be purchased digitally through Steam
or, you know, at a store.
