WAR Delayed, L4D Gold

Oops, screwed up the title.

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (WAR) has gone gold.
Mythic Entertainment today announced that the highly-anticipated MMORPG, Warhammer® Online: Age of Reckoning™ (WAR), has gone gold and will open its servers on September 18, 2008 at an MSRP of $49.99 in North America.

“We’ve done our best to create the next great MMORPG experience, but it’s the fans that will bring our world to life,” said Mark Jacobs, vice president at EA and general manager of Mythic Entertainment. “The Day of Reckoning approaches and it’s going to be glorious! It’s time to go to WAR.”
Left 4 Dead (L4D), Valve's co-op zombie shooting masterpiece, has been delayed so the launch can coincide with Half-Life's 10th anniversary.
Well the date has been changed again, and now Valve's highly anticipated co-op survival horror has different release dates for North America and Europe. Left 4 Dead 411 made a request to Valve for definite confirmation, and Doug Lombardi responded, "Nov 18 in the States. Nov 21 in Europe (US retailers do 'new release Tues' and the EU does that on Friday)."

The new release date still ties in with Half-Life's anniversary, as the game was originally launched on November 18, 1998.

    Kind of a funny coincidence. You post a controversially backwards title (WAR Delayed), it gets picked up by the VirginWorlds feeds, and VirginWorlds goes down.

    I personally blame you for overloading them with traffic :)

    Makes me sad about L4D being postponed, though. I've been fiending for a good zombie game for quite some time now. I was in love with L4D since first reading about it in a Games for Windows mag sometime last year.

    But... WAAAAAGH!

  2. Well they call you Heartless for a reason.

    So, do you think they fixed all the issues from this past weekend already or are you expecting a large bulky patch at launch?

  3. Well my guess is for patches at launch. Though, a good portion of players pre-ordered and will have patches already. Also, anyone interested will be able to get the client early and I assume patch it possibly.

    I know for sure the pathing bug is fixed. CTDs and combat responsiveness are the only two I worry about.

  4. I'm happy that it got pushed back, since that gives me more time to gather money.

    I'm not a fan of zombies, usually, but the last video of L4D surprised me with how fast-paced the action is. There are other games I want more, though.
