Korean online game portal Hangame will publish Mythic Entertainment's Warhammer Online in Korea, signing a multi-year agreement with Electronic Arts that will bring WAR to the NHN-owned company's stable of Korean-distributed titles such as Monster Hunter Frontier and Archlord. Based on Games Workshop's Warhammer fantasy tabletop war game, WAR has attracted over 800,000 users since launching simultaneously in North America, Europe, and Oceania on September 18 . Mythic previously said that the game was EA's most pre-ordered PC title, and claimed that WAR was also the fastest-selling new MMO of all time, with 1.5 million units sold to retailers in launch territories. Hangame, which is operated by South Korea's NHN Corporation, will be introducing WAR to over 30 million registered members, 3 million daily visitors, and 280,000 concurrent users on its site. The company offers a variety of titles, including free, in-house developed casual games and pay-to-pay MMORPGs like Archlord and Ragnarok 2. "It is an honor to publish Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning in Korea," says Hangame director Wook Jung. "With the addition of WAR to the NHN game platform and global network, we continue to expand our services in order to provide gamers in Korea with high quality games through various channels."
