In the sea of free-to-play games, you need fresh gameplay to stand out. Five-versus-five PvP? Been there, done that. With Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes, the latest venture under EA's Play4Free banner, BioWare Mythic is taking a stab at an entirely new approach—6v6v6. Three teams, one map, and six heroes per side makes for a whole lot of chaos, and we've our hands dirty with blood and goblin guts inside it over the past several months. Read our impressions inside, and if WoH sounds like a raucous good time to you, joining the ongoing open beta is just a few clicks away.
With Star Wars: The Old Republic right around the corner and some positively absurd numbers heralding its arrival, EA's current master plan isn't exactly a frantically guarded secret. If TOR hits the top of the charts and never looks back, then happiness and Hutt-Palace-themed victory parties for all involved. And if it doesn't? Well, let's not think about that.
So, laser-targeted focus is the order of the day. This isn't EA's only run on the MMO market Death Star, though. Warhammer: Age of Reckoning is still alive and kicking. And according to BioWare Mythic VP Eugene Evans, it's not going anywhere any time soon.
