Mythic Entertainment has announced that the open beta for the long anticipated Warhammer Online
will begin on September 7th, eleven days before the finished game goes live on September 18th. We've previously discussed WAR's delays
and the content cuts
involved in reaching this deadline. In the meantime, Mythic's Road to WAR
website (which we talked about
earlier this month) is still available. The press release
notes, "Players can get into the North American open beta by pre-ordering Warhammer Online from select retail partners."
