EA has announced BioWare Mythic, the BioWare studio that develops Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (WAR), has assumed the publishing, operating and subscription service rights for the game in Europe. BioWare Mythic assumes the rights from GOA, a division of France Telecom. Launched in North America, Europe and Oceania in September of 2008 and in Russia in February of 2009, WAR is an epic fantasy MMORPG based on the popular tabletop game from Games Workshop. Eugene Evans, General Manager of BioWare Mythic commented:
“We thank GOA for the tremendous job they did launching WAR in Europe and serving this dynamic community for the past two years. We’re excited to have the opportunity for BioWare Mythic to directly care for WAR players throughout Europe. We are committed to providing the highest possible level of service and maintaining the glory of epic Realm vs. Realm battles for all European players.”
Building upon the successful transition of Dark Age of CamelotTM from GOA in February 2010, BioWare Mythic assumes responsibility for WAR in Europe immediately. Once the transition begins, access to European servers for WAR will be suspended for 48 to 72 hours as new servers are brought online. The full game will then be accessible and to celebrate all current and former European subscribers will receive 14 days of free gameplay. Standard billing rates will resume after this free* game play period.
