Thursday's big press event at EA's corporate campus in Redwood Shores was an opportunity to check out its large slate of games. And while one of those games was Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, the massively multiplayer online role-playing game from the EA-owned Mythic Entertainment studio, the major news is that it is on the cusp of completion.
Creative director Paul Barnett told IGN that the client code, basically what customers will pay for in the box, will go gold sometime next week. With the big Games Convention in Leipzig scheduled for next week as well, it wouldn't be surprising to see Mythic make the big announcement there. Barnett also said that Mythic will work on tweaking and optimizing the server code right up until launch in mid September.
