Wow that game has not aged very well....

The "Tome of Knowledge" was God-Emperor sent. Every RPG(PC) should have it! WAAAAAAAAAAGH!

Posted by Eribuster

Noticing a lack of WAAAAGGHH. Makes me sad.

Posted by Thor_Molecules

It looks like fun, and it's free to play to boot!

The trailer was painfully cheesy though, what was with that generic guitar song. Not fitting for a fantasy game at all.

the art Kind of reminds me of a filter in photoshop.

This is a new IP and thus has not "aged".

This isn't Warhammer Online.

A PvP focused F2P game? Get ready to Pay2Win!

Sure looks to be using a lot of WAR assets though.

6v6v6.

Ugh

6 6 6? Oh noes!

EA's strategy: Put Bioware's name on everything.

Still GameBryo engine. Still aged.

Want success in this? Make friends, roll a dedicated bombsquad.

Things Mythic should have adjusted in the main WAR game before making this.

Guess it's Prime or going back to Dark Age of Camelot for triple-faction combat.

So... world of warcraft arena done free to play with an extra team?

Posted by RE_Player1

Although I am never going to play it it looks fun for people into PVP and best of all it's free. More people playing games is always a good thing.

@Kaidorin: Agreed.. the models and animations look very much like what I remember from the MMO.  Had a lot of fun in that game.. ups and downs, but still fun.

You're an idiot. It's the same exact assets as Warhammer online.

So they took all the crappy grind of the PVE content and cut it out so that all you had was PVP and they made it free to play. Will give it try. The 1-15 PVP was the only real fun of that game anyway.

Uh... what? Isn't Warhammer online some mmo? That looked nothing like this...? 
This is odd.

When you put it that way, it actually sounds a lot more interesting than this trailer made it seem.

Posted by Zolfe

THIS is the most generic name you could possibly get

Posted by Kbohls

Was expecting Warhammer Online expansion. Was disappoint.

Posted by allgrinzz

@Babylonian: It was almost enough to pique my interest.. until i realized, it's warhammer.. and that they'll probably try to shoehorn some pay mechanic into it... :/ one can only hope that the pay mechanic is just cosmetic... if so then Sign me up, free is worth a download and try at least.

Posted by Droop

I'll pass.

Posted by Scalec

This game reminds me a lot of Bloodline Champions, and the Warhammer mmo. I wonder how the final product will turn out.

Posted by lacke

I really enjoyed WoW arena (despite its many flaws) and I think this looks alright. It's free so I'll try it out. I'm really skeptical about the 6v6v6 part though.

Posted by ModernAlkemie

Looks like they just plucked out the instanced pvp scenarios from Warhammer Online and put them into their own game. PvP with friends is what kept me playing Warhammer Online for so long, so I'm definitely going to keep tabs on this.

Hopefully I can remake my Warhammer Online Shadow Warrior!

For Ulthuan!

GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAADS MIN!!! as much as i love GW and BIOWARE this game does not look good in the slightest!!

Posted by Zelnox

I don’t know if it’ll be fun, because it might get way too chaotic. It reminds me of that 5 or 6 way map to get to the Hall of Heroes. 5 or 6 teams of 8 squaring off! And there was a 3-way king of the hill map too.

Posted by Unpoetic

I rather wish they would just make Warhammer: Online free2play. Loved the RvR aspect of it, especially in t3 and t4. But if you din't play at primetime hours the servers where huge wastelands.

@Unpoetic: The trailer stated at the end "coming soon: 'Play4Free' ", so I'm guessing
it's already being worked on.
Posted by MisterMouse

the cel shadiness of it looks weird for some reason.

Posted by Nokterian

Holy damn...that looks ugly! No thank you!

Posted by wolf_blitzer85

Magic bubbles everywhere!

Posted by WinterSnowblind

Why not make that Warhammer MMO free to play? I'm at least mildly interested in that. This looks like they've stripped out the PVP component of a (very badly aged) MMO and called it a game. Perhaps I'm judging it on the graphics too much, but it looks very minimal effort.

I don't see the appeal here at all.

Posted by Johntathan

Looks like another ( first being DA2) quick cash in from Bioware ... .

Posted by katsu044

i should had  read  that title better  i was thinking this was  the 40k mmo :/ stupid me.

Posted by PurplePartyRobot

This was probably the only thing about WAR that mattered. Shame it took them this long to find that out and capitalize on it.

Why? Because they take a pretty much dead mmo and try to turn it into something profitable with the F2P model? Dude please.
Posted by Scigrex14

That trailer made it look very generic and also a lot like WoW battlegrounds. Is this game supposed to be competing with DOTA, HoN and LoL? If so looks like it's going to splinter the community even more.

I'm pretty sure it IS part of Warhammer Online. And that the 'Bioware' here is actually Bioware Mythic, thanks to EA changing the names of their studios around to leverage the Bioware brand. I mean, what MMO hasn't gone F2P in this day and age? If it IS new, than it's kinda embarrassing-looking. Other F2P - and even browser-based - games look much better than this. This looks notiecably worse than Quake Live or Battlefield Heroes.
Posted by mofoless

was gonna say it reminds me of another company trying to jump on the DOTA, LOL, HoN, band wagon as well.

The genre is picking up attention that is for sure...

Posted by mofoless

also reminds me of wow battlegrounds too... never played warhammer online so can't comment on that

Posted by MrKlorox

Hail Satan.

No, but seriously; there needs to be more 3 team action games.

Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam

FAIRIES FREQUENTLY FLY

Posted by MeatSim

EA is gonna milk the Bioware brand name for all it's worth i bet.
