War is everywhere in Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (WAR), the
new MMORPG from the creators of
Dark Age of Camelot. Based on Games Workshop's popular Warhammer
fantasy war game, WAR features next generation Realm vs. Realm

Upon entering WAR, players must determine their
allegiance and join an Army. Those inclined towards the side
of good may fight for the Armies of Order as an obstinate Dwarf,
noble High Elf, or loyal human soldier of the Empire. Those
inclined towards darker deeds may side with the sinister Armies of
Destruction as a savage Greenskin (Orc or Goblin), corrupt Dark
Elf, or marauding human worshipper of Chaos.
RvR combat takes place on three fronts where ancient foes wage an
unending war – Dwarfs vs. Greenskins, High Elf vs. Dark Elf, and
vs. Chaos. Players begin the game fighting their ancestral enemy,
but are free to journey to other fronts to help their allies in
their ongoing struggles.
The ultimate goal in RvR combat is the sacking of an enemy's
capital city. To do this, an army must invade and take control of
the opposition's homeland. Deciding battles take place on
objective-based battlefields and in instanced scenarios -
point-balanced battles that make use of NPC mercenaries known as
Dogs of War.
For the first time, WAR's RvR system integrates both Player vs.
Player (PvP) combat and Player vs. Environment (PvE) quests on the
same map. Every aspect of the game, including PvE missions, is
geared towards the greater war in some important way. However,
players are not required to participate in PvP combat, and may aid
in the RvR war effort and enjoy the game in its entirety via PvE
