A Peep at Warhammer Online

20 Jul

Props to Fred at MMO Explorer (at least thats where I found it) for unearthing this look at Warhammer Online.   While it looks like this will definitely be one of the new “polished” generation of MMOs to arrive on the scene, I still am struck by how amazingly familiar it all looks.

Of course, making entertaining and engaging games is like comedy, its a game of millimeters.  Small adjustments can make the difference between tedium and rabid game addition.  From what I can see, it certainly looks like Warhammer will continue the trend of improving the genre without redefining it.

Take a look and see what you think so far.

    I agree that it looks amazingly similar to WoW. I hope that the storyline, gameplay mechanics and community set it apart. However, I am concerned that the WoW community (which I feel is very immature) will just be moving over to WAR.

    I forgot to mention that I cannot take credit for taking this footage. I found it on youtube.

    One reason WAR looks so similar to WoW is because Blizzard ‘borrowed’ a lot of the style and feel of the Warhammer world when they made Warcraft.

    Hopefully WAR won’t be as ‘friendly’ as WoW, and actually have some edge to it’s PvP.
