'The Land of the Dead’ for Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning Launches

Mythic EntertainmentTM, an EA studio, today completed the roll-out of the "Call to Arms" live expansion by officially opening the doors of 'The Land of the Dead' dungeon zone to the Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (WAR) community.  'The Land of the Dead' opens the treacherous deserts of Nehekhara to players with the addition of a new RvR-gated zone filled with dozens of new Public QuestsTM, instanced lairs, and a massive new dungeon to plunder in search of the Casket of Souls.

Depending on a realm's performance across each individual server during last week's 'Rise of the Tomb Kings' live event, either the Armies of Order or Destruction will be the first to enter the new Tomb Kings themed zone.  The winning realm will receive exclusive 24-hour advanced access to 'The Land of the Dead' to explore its many liars, battle its menagerie of new monsters, and discover the unimaginable wealth is contains.

"As the Call to Arms live expansion neared its end, we were excited to watch the heroic conflict between the Armies of Order and Destruction play out on the different servers in the 'Rise of the Tomb Kings' live event," said Jeff Hickman, Executive Producer for Mythic Entertainment. "The real struggle for control over the 'The Land of the Dead' has only begun. Players on both sides are in for the fight of their lives as they attempt to unlock the secrets of the Tomb Kings for the glory of their Realm."

Based on the popular tabletop war game from Games Workshop, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning features revolutionary Realm vs. RealmTM conflict that will provide players with an engaging battleground for years to come. Available now for PC, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning is rated "T" for Teen by the ESRB.
