Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes

The open beta for Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes, a free-to-play game from BioWare Mythic, is now available for download.

The new player-vs-player title allows opponents to engage in a variety of fast-paced matches between three teams of six. The experience is inspired by Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, BioWare Mythic’s 2008 massively-multiplayer online game.

However, instead of creating and leveling new characters through traditional MMO means (like questing and raiding), gamers can buy new heroes with real money or in-game currency earned while playing, similar to other free-to-play titles like League of Legends. Some heroes start unlocked, so you can play the game without spending anything.

You can download the beta at the Wrath of Heroes website.
