New Warhammer Online classes specifically involved in excessive chopping and slaying

Mythic has finally introduced the Orc Choppa and Dwarf Slayer into the Warhammer Online mix.  They're two character classes imbibed with significant bloodlust (like any self-respecting WAR class) and are apparently ruthless on the battlefield (ditto).  And even though there are no bigger cheerleaders for WAR than WAR's own developers, their enthusiasm is as infectious as ever, even though they're doing nothing more than finding adrenaline-pumped ways of saying "These guys are into bashin' heads!"

New Melee Careers Now Available for the Armies of Order and Destruction

 

FAIRFAX, Va. – March 17, 2009 – Mythic Entertainment™, an Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) studio, today announced that the eagerly anticipated Dwarf Slayer and Orc Choppa careers are now playable in its award-winning MMORPG, Warhammer® Online: Age of Reckoning® (WAR). Introduced as part of an ongoing live expansion arc entitled Call to Arms, the new careers are examples of the massive content additions being made available as a part of your subscription to WAR.

 

“The Call to Arms has sounded, and the realms of Order and Destruction have welcomed two new combatants to the frontlines of WAR – the head-bashin’ Orc Choppa and oath-sworn Dwarf Slayer,” said Mark Jacobs, VP and General Manager of Mythic Entertainment. “These new careers are brutal, unrelenting fighters who will stop at nothing to claim victory over their opponents on the Realm vs. Realm battlefields.”

 

The ornery and savage Choppa is an offensive juggernaut that embodies the love of a good fight found in every Orc. He has a one-track mind that is dead set on wreaking havoc on enemy lines and bashin' heads! Driven by an inexplicably strong bloodlust, the Choppa is a whirlwind of destruction on the battlefield with a …debatable sense of self-preservation.

 

The tattooed Slayer is the manifestation of the Dwarfs’ obsession with honor, seeking only a heroic and honorable death in combat. However, dying quietly is simply not in his nature. In WAR, the Slayer is a ruthless and terrifying fighter, throwing himself into battle with no regard for his own well-being. He is a force to be reckoned with and relies on his ever-escalating rage to power each swing of his dual axes.

 

Based on the popular tabletop war game from Games Workshop, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning features revolutionary Realm vs. Realm™ conflict that will provide players with an engaging battleground for years to come. Available now for PC, WAR is rated “T” for Teen by the ESRB. To download the free 10-day trial, visit http://www.warhammeronline.com/trial.
