Lengthy-dead MMO Warhammer On-line simply added two scrapped cities
Warhammer On-line has been useless for fairly some time now. However due to the fan-run non-public server Return of Reckoning, the long-deceased MMO now options two cities that by no means made their method to the official sport (thanks, Eurogamer).
Each meant as social hubs and staging grounds for the PVP-focussed MMO’s world-spanning conflicts, Warhammer On-line launched with solely two cities—Altdorf for the Empire, and The Inevitable Metropolis for Chaos gamers. However there have been extra deliberate, with the sport’s beta that includes Karaz-A-Karak and Karak Eight Peaks for Dwarves and Greenskins respectively.
These two fortresses might need by no means made it into the ultimate sport, however over the weekend enterprising followers managed so as to add each to Return of Reckoning. A video provides us a tour of each—Karaz-A-Karak primarily performing as a legally-distinct variation on Warcraft’s Ironforge, whereas Eight Peaks buries the Dwarven citadel in Orky greebles. Each additionally function solely scratch-built “decrease” ranges that by no means appeared of their authentic implementations.
As a long-gone Warhammer On-line participant, I’ve dipped into RoR a couple of instances over time, and seeing the legally-murky MMO resurrect deprecated content material is fascinating. The staff hopes to proceed by getting previous dungeons up and working, and even convey again the sport’s spookiest post-launch addition, the Land of the Lifeless.
Final 12 months, Jody dove deep into the fan-run world of Warhammer On-line, watching as the sport perfected its variations of metropolis sieges, added ranked seasons, and mourned fallen neighborhood members.
