Open Beta date?

I really hope this is official soon, but for now we have only this press release to go on, which might be delayed again (but how could it be?). Anyway, here’s the bulk of it (so you don’t have to click on the source link if you don’t want to):

FAIRFAX, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aug. 18, 2008–Mythic Entertainment, an Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:ERTS) studio, today announced that the open beta for their highly anticipated MMORPG, Warhammer(R) Online: Age of Reckoning(TM) (WAR), will begin on September 7th, 2008. This means that hundreds of thousands of fans will be able to enter the gritty fantasy world of WAR to experience the thrill of Realm vs. Realm(TM) (RvR) combat before the game goes live on September 18th, 2008.

And for those of you who missed it, MBJ opened up to us last week about his feelings on the matter, Friday August 15th:

” I so want to lift it next week.” -MBJ

Today is allegededly one month before the release. My hope is that the NDA comes down within the next 36 hours, because – if nothing else – I want to listen to ChaosCast.

  1. “because – if nothing else – I want to listen to ChaosCast.”

    Hear hear. I do too!

  2. Pfff, it’s probably just more witless rambling!

  3. Technically he didn’t say “one month” was the average cut-off for a good game, he said “four weeks”, at least that is what I remember. And since he stated the NDA will drop tomorrow morning that’ll leave us just over 4 weeks before launch.

    Me, I’m wondering if they have a specific time for the NDA drop or if come midnight it’s all holds barred. I’d like to be able to post my write-up before work.
