Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning is looming on the horizon and gamers are already comparing it with other MMOs trying to figure out where to spend their money.

At first blush it may look like the familiar WoW Horde vs. Alliance system, but RvR in WAR is far more more dynamic system.
RvR in WAR is more than a PvP “gank” fest. Players can join the war effort immediately after character creation in a variety of scenarios to bring pain and suffering on their sworn enemies. Massively has a break down of the RvR combat system.

Khaine’s Embrace offers an explosive twist on capturing and holding territory, a style of gameplay honed to a point in the Gates of Ekrund encounter.
