Mythic and Electronic Arts announced that there will be celebration activities for the one year of Warhammer Online.
Kicking off on August 31 and going through the month of September, there will be weekend-only scenarios, a month long 20 percent experience and renown bonus, special in-game items for all players, veteran rewards, and The Wild Hunt live-event.
“This anniversary marks a major milestone for WAR, the Mythic development team, and our fantastic community of players,” said Mythic’s Jeff Hickman.
“We could think of no better way of marking this occasion than by celebrating our success with our fans for the entire month of September. We’ve got new content to share with the Wild Hunt live event, special versions of popular scenarios, fireworks, Halfling pies, and exploding stout!
“Now that is a party Warhammer style!”
Loads more information is included in the press release past the break.

EA boss John Riccitiello confirmed at E3 today that BioWare’s working on a new Knights of the old Republic game with an MMO “component” to it.
The project has been heavily rumoured for some time.
“We’ve got two of the most compelling MMOs in the industry in development,” said Riccitiello.
“The first title, based on the Warhammer property, will launch soon.
“And the one that people are dying for us to talk to them about – in partnership with Lucas, coming out of BioWare, which is, I think, quite possibly the most anticipated game, full stop, for the industry at the point when we get closer to telling you about it.”
He was then asked if the game was Knights of the old Republic and his response was a resounding, “Yes.”
That’s the kind of megaton we’ve been waiting for. Thanks, Portfolio.
