750,000 register for Warhammer Online

Half of 1.5m pre-orders now active

Mythic and Electronic Arts have confirmed that 750,000 players have registered for Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.

The MMO was released last month, and broke the publisher's record for the most pre-ordered PC game, with 1.5 million copies shipped to retailers.

"Thanks to our players, the war between the Realms continues to escalate at an incredible pace," said Mark Jacobs, co-founder and general manager of Mythic Entertainment.
