Update time!

January 29, 2009

Well ok its not really the update, just the announcement, and what an announcement it is! Not only does it cover the two new classes, Slayer and Choppa as expected, but also a whole new zone, and FOUR live events! Rock on!

So where the hell to start? Guess at the beginning of it all.

First up in Chronological order is the Night of Murder event scheduled to run from the 6th to 15th of February. Very interested to see what form this will take, again it has the daily tasks given to us from the Tome of Knowledge, looking forward to this one. Currently I havent bothered much with the live events, but I think its time to change that!

Next up is Call to Arms (Randomly the name of my old CoD4 clan but I digress), This is the announcement of the schedule for the new content launch.

First up in this is the Slayer and Choppa release live event, Bitter Rivals allowing us the 1 week headstart similar to the previous “Heavy Metal” event for BlackGuard and Knight of the Blazing Sun. This event is due to to start towards the end of February, so I would expect the last week that we will all be looking towards this. This also brings the Twisting Tower Scenario into play.

In April the Call to Arms update brings us, Beyond the Sands live event with the promise of riches from the dessert lands.

Rise of The Tomb Kings in May starts the fight to control the new zone with the Land of the Dead officially opening in June. Which while it is a damn long time away, is always something to look forward too!

The deserts of Nehekhara open to players with the addition of a new RvR-gated dungeon zone. To gain access to the Land of the Dead, opposing Realms must battle for control of the zone to access dozens of new Public Quests, instanced lairs, and a massive new Tomb Kings dungeon to plunder in search of the Casket of Souls.

In addition to all of this FREE content, yes Free! We can also look forward to official WAR forums, Free Trials of WAR and more RealmWar functionality aparantly.

What do I think? I reckon Mythic have rekindled the spark in many folk with these notes, yes folk will be annoyed expecting the Slayer and Choppa events to start today, but Mythic never said they would, only that they would tell us today.

My only worry is that Mythic has bit off more than it can chew with this, only time will tell if they are up to the challenge of meeting their schedule. That said, they wouldnt have announced it if they didnt think that they could do it.

All in all, I am pleased with this now lets get to WAR!
