Paris, France,?31st May 2007?- GOA, the France Telecom-owned publisher of online games, announces that the European website for Warhammer? Online: Age of Reckoning™ is now open and invites gamers to sign up for the massively anticipated WAR closed beta test, at www.WAR-europe.com.

Warhammer? Online: Age of Reckoning™ launches in early 2008 and selected gamers can gain access to the must-have MMORPG many months before release by registering at the European site. Successful applicants will be able to sample the brutal pleasures of a persistent online world populated by the internationally beloved characters and races of the epic Warhammer universe.

“We can’t wait to embark on WAR’s adventures with players from across Europe,” commented Ghislaine Le Rhun, Senior Vice President of GOA.“Opening subscription applications for the closed beta test today is the first step on the road to uniting the whole of Europe in battle. Those fortunate enough to be selected also have the hugely important role of being able to shape the WAR world by offering essential feedback on their experiences to the development team at EA Mythic.”

Warhammer? Online: Age of Reckoning™ launches simultaneously in the US and across Europe early in 2008 and is based on Games Workshop’s popular Warhammer fantasy world. The game features next generation Realm vs. Realm™ (RvR) gameplay that integrates Player vs. Player (PvP) and Player vs. Environment (PvE) combat into a seamless, cutting edge, massively multiplayer online experience.
