Our friends over at WarCry had the chance to sit down with a few developers from the Warhammer team to talk about 1.1 which was released yesterday.
As the team thought about where they wanted to take the game after launch and where they wanted to go, these two classes "turned into win," chuckles Gershowitz. "Players wanted more melee classes, and these are two very evocative, iconic careers for the Warhammer universe." Furthermore, the fact that they'd been in a semi-complete state when cut meant that they could be more easily "picked up and dusted off - we didn't have to start from scratch. We had feedback from Beta, we had the concept art and design, we had everything we needed to make the gameplay for the Knight and Black Guard very smooth."
Head on over to WarCry and check it out.
