Multiplay to distribute 50,000 Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning BETA keys

Multiplay’s new downloads service swings into action.

Southampton, September 4th 2008, Multiplay – one of the largest gaming communities in Europe – is pleased to announce it has 50,000 beta keys for Electronic Arts’ upcoming Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning MMO. The keys are for the open public beta and will be available from Thursday 4th September 2008 from Multiplay’s new gaming downloads site, www.fileplay.net.

Upon entering WAR, players must determine their allegiance and join an army. Those inclined towards the side of good may fight for the Realm of Order as an obstinate Dwarf, noble High Elf, or loyal human soldier of the Empire. Those inclined towards darker deeds may side with the sinister Realm of Destruction as a savage Greenskin (Orc or Goblin), corrupt Dark Elf, or marauding human worshipper of Chaos.

For the first time, players can engage in Public QuestsTM; these community driven Player vs. Environment quests help to advance the game’s story and allow all allied players within a certain location to participate in an ongoing, multi-stage battle. This is an example of how every aspect of the game, including PvE content, is geared towards the greater war in some important way. Players are not required to participate in Player vs. Player combat, and may aid in the Realm vs. Realm war effort and enjoy the game in its entirety via PvE content.

Drawing from a quarter century of highly detailed source material, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning brings Games Workshop’s fantasy world to life in a way that will allow players to create characters destined for great deeds and glory on the field of battle.
