Mythic boss Mark Jacobs has just dropped a bombshell on the MMO world by announcing that Warhammer Online is to suffer a huge cut in content, with the final game losing four capital cities and four entire classes.
Speaking in an interview with MMORPG.com, Jacobs said that the Dark Elf, High Elf, Orc, and Dwarf cities are to be dropped from the game’s launch, as will the Choppa (Greenskin), the Hammerer (Dwarf), the Blackguard (Dark Elf) and the Knight of the Blazing Sun (Empire).
As Massively points out, two of these classes were the major tankers for their races, so the subject of balance is obviously being raised.
Game’s out this autumn. God willing.
