Warhammer Online free to all account holders pre-closure

Warhammer Online has closed account creation but dropped its subscription fees for the few weeks remaining before its final closure.

As of right now, no new player sign-ups are being accepted, but all account holders – whether they had a paid-up subscription or not – can now play for free. In a post on the MMO’s website, Mythic called it a “parting gift”.

“We will be adding new NPC’s to the game in order to power up your characters as well as other unique experiences for everyone to enjoy as we say goodbye to Warhammer Online over the next few weeks. So please join us and help say goodbye to Warhammer Online in one last big WAAAGH,” the team wrote.

New subscriptions and game time purchases have also been disabled.

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning goes offline for good on December 18. One of its original designers, Mark Jacobs – who was also responsible for Dark Age of Camelot – has moved on with an indie MMO project, Camelot Unchained.
