WAR Preview Weekend

A new line item showed up on my Warhammer Online account yesterday:

(Actually, it looked different yesterday.  They updated the account management interface over night.)

I had heard mention of the preview weekend coming up, but was not sure I was on the list.

I dug through my email spam filter for a message from “nobody@eamythic.com” (thanks to Bluelinebasher) and found the details.


It is our pleasure to invite you to the Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning Preview Weekend taking place this Friday, August 22nd thru Monday, August 25th. Join thousands of your fellow players and experience the Age of Reckoning for the first time as you adventure through two tiers of content across three campaigns.

This is an invite-only event, so don’t delay in preparing for WAR and be one of the first to engage in the thrill and glory of RvR combat before the rest of the world!

Below are instructions on how and where to download the game:

    I did not preorder until Tuesday and I also got in. Though I haven’t seen an e-mail.. either way, I’m patched and ready.

    I patched and poked my nose in for a few mins this morning. Given that I played WoW last night, I am more inclined to see the differences than the similarities.

    Couldn’t find any public quest goodness in 10 mins. The way some people wrote about them I thought they would be obvious and available from the moment I logged in, arm around my shoulder an offering me a beer. But more on that after the weekend.

    I too was surprised that it was THIS weekend when I read Saylah’s blog when I went home for lunch and found out about it. I was like WHAT?! Let’s see if I can get in…. YUP – I’m in! Hmmm, should I call in sick for a half day or what… hmmmm. I got a ton of books sitting in my office that I want over the weekend… GRRR… DAMNIT I gotta go back to work@!

    Oh weel I’ll be back in, in a couple hours or so…
