FAIRFAX, VA - MAY 4, 2006 - Mythic Entertainment, developer and publisher of massively-multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs), today released the E3 cinematic trailer for Warhammer Online: Age of ReckoningTM (WAR). A MMORPG based on Games Workshop's popular Warhammer fantasy war game, WAR features next generation Realm vs. RealmTM (RvR) game play that will immerse players in a world of perpetual conflict. The E3 trailer introduces four of WAR's six playable armies and offers a taste of the grim, yet darkly humorous, world of Warhammer.

Created by Venice, CA based Blur Studio, the trailer for WAR literally launches the viewer into the heat of battle as mortal enemies clash in hand-to-hand combat. In the shadow of Ekrund's Gates a Dwarf Slayer and gigantic Black Orc struggle in a fight to the death, while a High Elf and a Dark Elf engage in a lethal dance with only one possible outcome. It is the fantasy world of Warhammer brought to life for the first time in cinematic form.

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning will be featured in the Mythic Entertainment booth at E3 (Booth #2472 West Hall). The game is scheduled for release on the PC in the fall of 2007.

About Warhammer

Games Workshop created the Warhammer world more than 23 years ago, as the setting for its wildly successful tabletop fantasy war game of the same name. Since then the game has been released in six editions, had dozens of supplements, and been the basis for tens of thousands of unique model soldier designs, making it one of the most well documented and detailed fantasy settings in existence. The world itself is a dark and forbidding fantasy realm, where Elves, Orcs, Dwarfs, Undead, and many other races clash constantly in mighty battles seeking domination over each other. Meanwhile, the insidious forces of Chaos strive to undermine the basic fabric of society both from within and by the direct invasion of its legions of daemons, beastmen and warped human champions.

The Warhammer community stretches across the world, supported by Games Workshop's 330+ stores, 4000+ independent retailers, and many games clubs, tournaments and events such as the annual Games Days and Golden Demon awards in the UK, USA, Canada, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, and Australia. There is also a thriving web community based around the official website and many thousands of fan sites.
