Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (officially abbreviated as WAR) is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) based on Games Workshop's Warhammer Fantasy setting.
Warhammer Online is a MMORPG like no other and now it’s free! If you have never played this incredible game in the past, it’s one that you may want to consider checking out especially if you enjoy lots of action.
The main focus in Warhammer Online MMORPG is “war” and it focuses heavily on PvP combat. Therefore, if you love the PvP aspect of other online games, then you are sure to enjoy this one. Expect to see fireballs flying across your screen and hear the sound of swords clashing as players everywhere are engaged in battle. Pet lions that attack the opposing teams are a nice touch as well.
Players are offered rewards for their combat ability and you have the option of running solo or joining a guild. You’ll start the game by choosing one of the fractions available, which are called “Order” and “Destruction” and then you’ll need to choose an army and a career. From here, you can join right in on the action by taking part in one of the main PvP scenarios available to you. Joining a queue (found throughout the game) will pit you against others around the same level as your character.
When your team has earned enough victory points against the opposing team, their city will be vulnerable and ready to be attacked. There are mini-dungeons to be explored where you fight for battles called “Keep Captures”. Here your team gets to keep the boss of the defending mobs that you defeat and the “Keep Battles” are chaotic and amazingly intense.
The public quests will offer rewards along with lots of fun and challenges for you to enjoy. There is so much to do in this game that you should never get bored. You can join in on a public quest or take part in open battles which are very hectic but in a good way. There are many stand-alone options that can be very rewarding so you never run out of things to do.
The graphics are great and you won’t run into very many bugs in this game, which is something all gamers can appreciated. Warhammer Online MMORPG provides the type of fun and excitement that needs to be experienced personally in order to get the full impact of the game.
