Warhammer Online will be serviced in South Korea in a completely new appearance. NHN has a strong will to avoid duplicating the same failure in publishing Lord of the Rings online and Monster Hunter Frontier Online. So they decided not only localize Warhammer Online, but to make the game in Korean way. (Via)

First, as the typical system of Warhammer Online, large-scale war (RvR) system will be changed for full-scale war in future.

NHN estimated that Warhammer Online on current state are losing popularity. They are work with EA on the major modifications about the game in order to enable the RvR system in an open field.

Characters change according to user preferences

The characters of Warhammer Online will be modified. Current Orc and Elf in the game have strong personality but not so beautiful in the opinions of Korean.

 

Orc                                     Elf

NHN is going to fix the characters in two camps to match the sentiment of Korean, of course in the range of the original atmosphere.

"For a more systematic localization", NHN publishing business manager Shin said "The cases are working through professional translation companies, and we also separated force to support them."
