WAR heralds new classes with live event

Earn early access to careers and scenario.

Mythic has announced the start of an in-game event in Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning to celebrate the imminent arrival of two new careers.

The Heavy Metal event is a precursor to the December update that will introduce the Knight of the Blazing Sun and the Black Guard to the game. Both classes are heavily-armoured "tank" warriors that were cut from the original release of the game in September for further tuning.

Heavy Metal runs from 18th November to December 1st. If you complete the event's quests, you'll be able to access the new careers a week before they're made available to everybody else.

Heavy Metal also includes a special battlefield Scenario called Reikland Factory. This Empire steam tank factory is open to all players of all ranks, but only for the duration of the event.
