FAIRFAX, Va., Dec 16, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Mythic Entertainment(TM), an Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:ERTS) studio, has sounded a rallying call for past players of Warhammer(R) Online: Age of Reckoning(R) (WAR) with their new Call to Arms Reenlistment Campaign. All past subscribers of WAR are invited to return to the game between December 16th - 23rd to receive special in-game item rewards and ten (10) free days of game time to discover why WAR is now even better than ever!
Returning players must visit the Mythic Account Center (https://accounts.eamythic.com/) between December 16th - 23rd to reactivate their WAR accounts. Players will have access to all of their characters during the free 10-day re-evaluation period which begins upon reactivation. No subscription required.
"So much has changed on the battlefields of WAR over the past several months, and we are giving all returning players 10 free days to come back and experience these improvements for themselves," said Jeff Hickman, Studio Executive Producer at Mythic Entertainment. "The game runs faster and is more stable than ever before. We've really improved the RvR experience - we've removed fortresses as a barrier to sacking the cities, we've implemented the new Underdog System, and you can always find a battle in Open RvR. There has never been a better time to step back into the Age of Reckoning and re-join the WAR!"
The Call to Arms Reenlistment Campaign will also offer returning players three valuable in-game item rewards: The Libram of Insight (+15% to Experience, Renown, and Influence; limited uses), The Signet of Cursed Company (turns a player into a skeleton), and Kemmler's Arthritic Hand (enhanced Action Point regeneration). In addition, both current and former players will receive a 20% bonus to Experience, Renown and Influence while playing WAR from December 16th - 23rd.
