EA Mythic and Black Library Publishing have announced that they will be publishing the first novel set in the Age of Reckoning, the era in which Warhammer Online is set. Empire in Chaos is set to be released early in 2008.



Fairfax, VA, - August 30, 2007 - Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) and BL
Publishing, a division of Games Workshop, announced today that BL Publishing
will release an original novel based on the highly anticipated MMORPG,
Warhammer(R) Online: Age of Reckoning(TM) (WAR). The first book in the new
series of novels set in the Age of Reckoning, EMPIRE IN CHAOS will be
available in all major bookstores and on the BL Publishing website in early
2008.

In EMPIRE IN CHAOS, by noted Games Workshop author Anthony Reynolds, the
lands of the Empire are being ravaged by a terrible plague. When Annaliese
Jaeger's village is overrun and destroyed by mutants, she and an injured Elf
captive are the only survivors. As the two unlikely companions fight their
way towards Black Fire Pass, Annaliese discovers within herself powers of
courage and faith that inspire all around her. With a grizzled Witch Hunter
and a Dwarf Ironbreaker, the heroes battle alongside the armies of the
Empire and the Dwarfs, above and below the earth, against greenskin tribes
and the hordes of Chaos. Together, they must find their courage and help
turn back the tides of darkness, lest all of the Empire be lost.

Mark Jacobs, VP and General Manager at EA Mythic commented, "We're excited
to be working with BL Publishing and Anthony Reynolds to bring our game to
life and explore the rich depth of WAR's epic story. BL Publishing has
released many great novels set in Games Workshop's Warhammer world and we
are proud to have a book based on our game join the ranks of such notable
works."

Anthony Reynolds, the author of the novel remarked, "The Warhammer world is
a grim place, full of horror, violence and dark humor, and the EA Mythic
team have really brought that to life - faithfully creating a living,
breathing, bellicose world being torn apart by constant warfare. It's the
perfect backdrop for a novel. I'd been following the progress of the game
for some time and it was easy to see that Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning
was going to be something special."
