EA announces Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes

Electronic Arts has announced a new free-to-play PVP MMO, Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes.

In a pre-GamesCom 2011 press conference Electronic Arts has announced a new free-to-play MMO spin-off that it hopes will rejuvenate Warhammer Online, dubbed Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes.

A departure from the standards of Warhammer Online, Wrath of Heroes has a more cartoon aesthetic and focuses on six versus six versus six (18 players, three teams) PVP matches.

An official release date for Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes has not been announced, though Electronic Arts has said that it is hoping for an August release.

Electronic Arts has also named Bioware Mythic, the studio behind the original Warhammer Online, as the developers of Wrath of Heroes.

Bioware's Ray Muzyka described the game as being highly accessible and said that Beta sign-ups would begin shortly.

interesting.

A lot of free to play MMO's coming out at the moment, one of them is bound to be good. I understand AOE online is out today and that is free to play.

I loved the fantasy warhammer MMORPG that came out a while back but I found the overall population to be pretty barren on most servers. This might catch my attention for a while but I'm really waiting for any news on the 40k MMORPG.

This is not an MMO. It's a MOBA using the WAR engine, art assets, and level design. There's no open world to explore or anything, you just sit in a lobby and queue for the next battle like any other online shooter.
