Warhammer Online Release Date

Warhammer Online Release Date.

The latest official news on the Warhammer Online release date is that it has been put back to Fall 2008. See below for the reasons in EA/Mythics own words.

On the day we signed the agreement to license Warhammer from Games Workshop, I promised them that we would create a great and glorious game, a truly next-generation MMORPG. Today, I have news to report; we are going to delay the release of WAR until Fall 2008. While we do not expect this announcement to be met with fanfare and cheering crowds; the additional time will be spent hammering WAR into an even better game that it is today.

During the most recent phase of beta testing, two things have become clear. One was that our key innovations – Public Quests, Tome of Knowledge and Realm vs. Realm combat – were all coming along very well, as was the first stage of our innovative crafting system. The second, that the game would benefit from additional iteration time as well as adding a layer of polish or two. Fortunately, as part of Electronic Arts, we are able to do just that.

While I have no doubt that the community will experience a wide range of emotions over this decision, I urge you to remember one thing (and to keep the tar cold and the feathers on the birds), that our goal has never been to release a game by a certain date but to release a great Warhammer MMORPG. We have not wavered from this goal and with the full support of Games Workshop and Electronic Arts we intend to release a glorious next-generation MMORPG.

As always, I thank the community for its support, patronage and its patience.

Counter-Strike Online is a remake of Counter-Strike: Condition Zero targeted towards Asia’s gaming market. It is being developed by Nexon Corporation with oversight from license-holder Valve Corporation. Unlike most of Valve’s games, Counter-Strike Online will not require Steam to play.

Weapons

There are 9 new weapons available in Counter-Strike Online, in addition to the “classic” weapons featured in the original Counter-Strike: Condition Zero. Additional weapons include shotguns, new submachine guns and assault rifles.

Some of the new rifles also feature a “barrel change” system. When the player selects the other configuration of the weapon, the player changes the barrel and turn the weapon between a semi-automatic marksman rifle and the normal assault rifle.
