Today marks the start of what EA hopes will be a long and fruitful relationship between you and their team-versus-team combat game Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes.  It’s open beta time, and players interested in taking Nethys the Unsated or her equally murderous colleagues out for a test drive can download the free client right here.  But first, why not get a little primer on how she works with the spotlight video we’ve got after the jump?



Wrath of Heroes is currently in production at “BioWare Mythic,” the EA subsidiary previously known as Mythic Entertainment when they brought us the MMORPGs Dark Age of Camelot and Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.  This marks the company’s first foray into the realm of fast-paced arena brawlers, and you can’t find a lower price than free to give it a whirl!

Warhammer Online:Wrath of Heroes is advancing online PvP games by delivering instant, fast-paced and competitive three-sided 6v6v6 PvP arena gameplay – for free!  As the latest entry in EA’s Play4Free portfolio, the game throws three teams into battle against each other, where players can choose from a wide range of unique heroes from the Warhammer universe on the fly. This cutthroat setup creates highly dynamic matches where teams constantly live on the edge of victory or defeat and alliances are quickly formed and just as quickly forgotten. With the instant playability of battles that last an intense 15 minutes, a small download size, and no cost to enter, Wrath of Heroes can scratch the competitive PvP itch for gamers of any type.
