Warhammer Online servers closing, transfers offered

By Brenna Hillier, Tuesday, 8 February 2011 05:42 GMT

EA is tightening Warhammer Online’s plus-one-against-ogres belt, with one European and two North American servers facing shutdown.

Free transfers to existing servers are being offered to current players, according to an announcement on the Warhammer Online website, with the closures described as designed to “enable players to experience more action during all hours”.

On the US side, Iron Rock and Volkmar dwellers will both be eligible for transfer to Gorfang, which will have multi-realm switched on, allowing Order and Chaos players simultaneously.

The German server Carroburg will be folded into Drakenwald, likewise made multi-realm.

Transfers become available on February 9, when Iron Rock, Volkmar and Carroburg will become legacy servers, disallowing new sign ups. After three weeks, all three will be disabled.

Thanks, Massively.

  • Dungeon Keeper F2P "ridiculous" and not "quite right", says Molyneux

    Dungeon Keeper creator Peter Molyneux has offered some characteristically gentle criticism of the new free-to-play mobile version of the sim, which has taken a critical drubbing, to put it mildly.

  • Mythic defends Dungeon Keeper mobile edition

    Though there has been plenty of furor over EA’s free-to-play mobile adaptation of Dungeon Keeper this week developer EA Mythic is downplaying all that controversy, with Jeff Skalski telling TabTimes that they made the game how it is “so the classic franchise would be accessible to as many people as possible.”
