Two new character classes have been added in the latest patch for Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.

The Blazing Sun and Black Guard careers had previously only been available to those players who completed the Heavy Metal live event. However apparently, they will be accessible by everyone when the game's first major update drops next week.

Game Update 1.1.0 will also see a revamp for open-world realm-versus-realm play, as well as new quest chains, Lairs and Tome of Knowledge unlocks.

Until then, this week's patch will see a number of changes being made to existing careers, with nine getting full Mastery point refunds, as well as a couple of fixes to the responsiveness and animation of combat.

We'll bring you any more news about the big update as soon as we hear it.
