The Black Guard (concept art, left) and Knight of the Blazing Sun (right) character classes will be returning in Mythic Entertainment's MMORPG, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, as stated by company CEO Mark Jacobs on the game's official site:
"I’m happy to announce that in December, the Black Guard and the Knight of the Blazing Sun will officially be part of WAR. We have very special plans around their appearance and in our next newsletter we will provide full details about that exciting and rather novel event. When they were cut from the game launch plans earlier this year, I said that the Black Guard and the Knight would be part of WAR only when they were great and deserved their place alongside all of WAR’s other compelling classes. I also said that we would not charge any additional fees for this new content or put it in a separate expansion pack; that’s not how we operate."
Warhammer Online's user-base sits at 750,000 players since last week. The game is now available for the PC.
