FileFront is NOT closing down!
by Gedan, Admin @ 09-04-02 23:28 EST

FileFront will remain open, the recent news however was NOT an early April Fool's joke, instead the original founders purchased it and FileFront now stand as a independent company again:

"After learning about Ziff Davis Media's plan to suspend FileFront at the end of March, the original founders of FileFront made the decision to buy it back from Ziff Davis Media.

We're happy to announce to the gaming community that as of today, April 1st, 2009, FileFront is a completely independent company again and is no longer part of Ziff Davis Media. All previously suspended services should be active and working again. We thank Ziff Davis Media for their cooperation and willingness to keep the site and community alive.

Due to the very unfortunate timing of this event and related announcements on March 24th and April 1st (April Fool's Day), we'd like to make it perfectly clear that:

1) 1) The March 24th announcement about FileFront suspending its operation was NOT an early April Fool's joke.

2) This announcement about the original founders buying back FileFront from Ziff Davis Media is also NOT an April Fool's joke.

3) We're making this announcement on April 1st because the deal was completed today and we want to bring all services back online immediately.

4) We would NEVER suspend FileFront as an April Fool's joke.

5) We are happy to be back!..


.. Welcome home. Game On!"

Regarding additional beta keys
by Uzbeki, Admin @ 08-09-05 15:12 EST
Due to the overwhelming response the open beta keys that we had available were all reserved at record speed. However some of the keys that we have reserved have yet to be claimed.

On Sunday or Monday we will release all non claimed keys back to our users on a first come first served basis. Please do not beg for keys. The amount is yet to be determined of course but it may well be up to 600 keys.

All keys will be made available on our Beta Key claim page.


More BETA Keys!
by styng, Admin @ 08-09-04 14:40 EST

As you might have noticed, we have given away over 2000 keys so far. Sadly, some of you might not have had a chance to claim yours. So, we are happy to announce that we will be adding more Keys very shortly!

Also, those users who received personal PMs from us to claim their BETA keys, you can still claim them as they are reserved to you.

Stay tuned, because the WAR is only starting!


------
UPDATE: 600 new keys have been released but they are going fast!

UPDATE 2: The new keys went in less than 20 minutes! We will be able to release more unclaimed keys on Sunday or Monday. The number is still to be determined but it will be along the same numbers or slightly less.

NDA Lifted!
by Styng, Admin @ 08-08-20 12:32 EST

"Folks,

   As of now, the Non Disclosure portions of our North American Beta Testing Agreement are now officially lifted.  From this point on players may now freely talk about their experiences in the game as well as post screenshots, videos, etc.  We will be sending an email out to all our current players with full details about the lift over the next 24 hours.  Players with access to our forums can also see the letter there.  Players may not talk about nor reprint posts from our forums and our Test Servers (currently Deathsword) are still fully covered by the confidentiality portions of our Beta Testing Agreement.  So, other than that, free feel to talk about and share your experiences in WAR. 

My thanks go out to everyone who has beta tested and continues to beta test WAR.  It has been with your help and feedback that WAR is where it is today.  We really appreciate your effort.

WAR is almost upon us! 

Mark Jacobs
VP, GM Mythic Entertainment"

WAR Release Date Confirmed!
by styng, Admin @ 08-08-07 09:58 EST

Warhammer® Online: Age of Reckoning™ Release Date Confirmed: 18th September 2008

Paris, France – August 6th, 2008 – GOA, Orange’s games unit and Mythic Entertainment, an Electronic Arts Inc. studio (NASDAQ: ERTS), today announced the release date of 18th September 2008 for the eagerly awaited MMORPG, Warhammer® Online: Age of Reckoning™ (WAR), as well as confirming retail launch offerings and subscription fees.

Based on Games Workshop’s epic and longstanding tabletop fantasy war game which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning features a unique Realm vs. Realm™ (RvR) gameplay that immerses players in a world of perpetual conflict.

“GOA is thrilled at the prospect of opening the doors to the world of Warhammer Online very soon", said Ghislaine Le Rhun, Managing Director of GOA. "As the development of Warhammer Online continued to accelerate, we have been gearing up to support the launch, building a massive server infrastructure, localizing millions of words and recruiting a top notch team of experts in their fields. We look forward to sharing the fun we're having on the battlefields of WAR".

“The countdown has officially begun. Mark your calendars! September 18th is the Day of Reckoning”, said Mark Jacobs, founder and general manager of Mythic Entertainment. “For the last three years, the entire team at Mythic has poured their hearts into making Warhammer Online the next great MMORPG. We are so excited to open up this world and share it with the fans that will live in it, quest in it, go to war in it and make it come alive.”

From launch, subscriptions can be purchased online and within the game:
- 1 month for 12.99€ (£10.31)
- 3 months for 35.97€ (£28.55)
- 6 months for 65.94€ (£52.34)

Alternatively, pre-paid Game Card packs for a 60-day subscription will be available through participating retailers for 29.99€ (£23.81).

From the 28th August, the regular edition of the game can be pre-ordered at 5€ (£3.97), and this special pre-order pack will entitle players to a key for ‘Live Game Head Start’ access ahead of the full commercial release on the 18th September, as well as bonus in-game items.

The regular edition of the game will be priced at 49.99 € (£39.69) RRP with a 30-day subscription included.

Very few copies of the Collector’s Editions are still available for pre-order. Gamers pre-ordering the Collector’s Edition will have access to the Open Beta, as well as the ‘Live Game Head Start’ and bonus in-game items.

Malicious websites
by baloo, Admin @ 08-04-08 12:04 EST

There have been a few domains registered with a similar name to our real domain "warcraftmovies.com" that are used for spreading harmful content.

Our site should only be accessed via warcraftmovies.com and no other domain.

Keep your anti-virus software updated to avoid these kind of problems.

Introducing: l337 speak!
by Gedan, Admin @ 08-04-01 10:29 EST

Due to popular demands we have implemented "leet speak" to our homepage. We pulled some strings and recruited one of our top PvP Author to translate our site! Why do we go through all this trouble? This written argot will prevent our parents and others that do not play the game from understanding what we are doing here, before the summer no one outside this community will ever know we excised!

We thank you for your patience while implementing the "leet speak" on our servers, this is just the BETA phase and when everything is working leet will be default language. In the final stage of this renewal titles and voice over on movies will be manually changed to fit the new standard. Below are a few examples on how the system has improved our Authors summary:

I'm So Sick

Tales of the past III

Eviscerate 7 - World PvP, Daggers

Nihilum EU-BG3 Grand Final

For now you will have to click the new official flag in the top right corner to get the desired effect.

Hope you are as excited about this as we are, reply to this thread if you want to help us translate all the movies and we will get in contact with you.

Tonight's Drakedog Live Stream "Reeling"
by Gedan, Admin @ 08-03-31 20:27 EST

Thank you all for participating in this Ingame Streaming, were we showed a glimpse of Drakedogs finesse Live!

Based on the current viewing cap, or the massive overload on our servers, some of you might have missed this "Reel" session, we are working to solve this but the project is still in its BETA phase. Also for a short period of time only Premium members had access to the stream, server capacity had reached its limit and we were forced to cut down or crash.

Soon we will have this streamlined, the viewing cap can be lifted and everyone can enjoy this new technology. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Stay updated on our Reel page for future sessions >>
