Yay, fireworks: Warhammer Online live event underway now



6:20 PM on 07.01.2009

The 4th of July is almost here. More and more children are being rushed to the ER with burns from stray projectiles and adults are stocking up on the essentials: beer, meat and barbeque juice. While these real world things are interesting, they don’t hold a candle to a good live event in an MMO. (OK, they're better.) This summer a every MMO under the sun is throwing some kind of live event. Warhammer Online certainly isn't excluded from the list.

Through July 6th, WAR players can loot rare “firework items” from enemies and earn an extra ten perfect experience gain from every fallen victim. And to think, our national holiday is all it took to make this happen. God bless America.

Mythic Entertainment Blasts into Summer with Warhammer Online's 4th of July Live Event

With summer officially underway, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (WAR) is honoring the 4th of July holiday with a live event which kicked off last week and runs through Monday, July 6th at 8:00 am ET.

The forces of Order and Destruction will celebrate by dropping rare firework items from every enemy player killed during RvR combat. In addition, all players will experience a 10% gain in the amount of XP and Renown earned during the entire live event.

Kill your enemies and flaunt your victories with firework displays, because the 4th of July live event has begun and the WAR rages on!

Based on the popular tabletop war game from Games Workshop, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning features revolutionary Realm vs. Realm™ conflict that will provide players with an engaging battleground for years to come. Available now for PC, WAR is rated "T" for Teen by the ESRB.
