Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (PC)
Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning is all about playing with friends - whether they're people you know in real life, or people you've never once met in person. Warhammer's focus is the struggle between the two warring factions of Order and Destruction, and players are thrust into the conflict from the very beginning. Whether you're banding together to assault the strongholds and keeps of the enemy faction or just bashing a few heads and contributing to a Public Quest before heading on your merry way, it's easy to feel like in Warhammer, you're part of something much bigger than just yourself. Ask not what your faction can do for you, but ask what you can do to crush your ancestral foes and plunder their homelands!
