Free Warhammer Online PVP game shown

Mythic's Wrath of Heroes live this autumn.

BioWare has announced a free-to-play PVP MMO called Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes.

BioWare Mythic, creator of Warhammer Online, is making the game.

Wrath of Heroes launches this autumn. Wrath of Heroes beta sign-ups are live now.

The style is heavily cel-shaded or cartoony, depending on how you look at it. It's undeniably Warhammer Online underneath the make-up, though.

Battles see three teams of six people fight each other. That's 18 people slugging it out at once.

You'll be able to swap between your stable of heroes on the fly. Battles are tailored to shorter gameplay sessions such as lunch breaks. Levelling up is mentioned.

BioWare CEO Ray Muzyka described the game as "accessible, fast-paced and highly competitive". "It's a hell of a lot of fun," he said.

PVP was one of the cornerstones of Warhammer Online's offering. Has Mythic ripped this area out and rebadged it for a wider audience? Only a closer look will tell.
