Warhammer Online has been dead for quite a while now. But thanks to the fan-run private server Return of Reckoning, the long-deceased MMO now features two cities that never made their way to the official game (thanks, Eurogamer).
Both intended as social hubs and staging grounds for the PVP-focussed MMO’s world-spanning conflicts, Warhammer Online launched with only two cities—Altdorf for the Empire, and The Inevitable City for Chaos players. But there were more planned, with the game’s beta featuring Karaz-A-Karak and Karak Eight Peaks for Dwarves and Greenskins respectively.
Those two fortresses might have never made it into the final game, but over the weekend enterprising fans managed to add both to Return of Reckoning. A video gives us a tour of both—Karaz-A-Karak essentially acting as a legally-distinct variation on Warcraft’s Ironforge, while Eight Peaks buries the Dwarven citadel in Orky greebles. Both also feature entirely scratch-built “lower” levels that never appeared in their original implementations.
