Warhammer Online open beta details emerge

Warhammer Online

After giving us a few details on Warhammer Online’s pricing structure and release date, Mythic Entertainment and EA are now ready to announce that the open beta for their upcoming MMO will begin September 7th, 2008 – a little over a week before the title goes live. Those who wish to participate can do so by pre-ordering the game from select retailers listed on Mythic’s website here. Those who participated in the closed beta will automatically receive an invite as well.

“In just a few weeks, we are going to throw open our doors and invite more players into the game than ever before,” says Mythic Entertainment co-founder and general manager Mark Jacobs. “They will have a chance to delve into the open beta and see for themselves that WAR has arrived and it is glorious!”

Depending on where you pre-order you copy from you’ll also be entitled to different pieces of in-game equipment (and a $5-dollar off coupon if you go with Target). And while all 20 classes will be made available, the beta is not without its restrictions, which include a lvl.20 level cap as well as restrictions on what in-game content you’ll have access to. And remember, Orcs iz da biggest and da strongest!

While currently an advertising major, he has high hopes of writing professionally about this digital time waster we love so much. He considers himself an easy going guy and will try just about anything with an open mind. Most of his gaming time is split between the PC and 360, though he does enjoy all of the major consoles. His favorite genre would be either fighters or turn-based strategy titles, while conversely harboring a dislike for most MMORPGs.
