Gamescon 2011: BioWare announces Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes

Here is the first of many fun updates from Gamescon 2011. BioWare has a great announcement for Warhammer fans…

The Warhammer universe just got a huge boost in fun as BioWare announced Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes. This new free-to-play online game will be one of the most exciting things in the world of gaming for the fall season. Wrath of Heroes sounds like it should be a ton of fun and almost certainly will be a hit. Being free to play makes it all the better.

BioWare is making quite the splash at GamesCom for 2011, and this latest announcement is a big example of why. Wrath of Heroes is being touted as a PvP combat type game that will be played within the Warhammer Universe. It is supposed to be highly competitive while at the same time extremely engaging.

Plenty of heroes will be available to fit any type of style, making the game even more interactive. It will also have 6v6v6 set-ups that will cater to the gamers that prefer teamwork type setups. No matter what the style is that you crave, it appears that BioWare thought of you with Warhammer Online.

Dr. Ray Muzyka, co-founder of BioWare, said “We’re thrilled to expand our audience and deliver BioWare’s first Play4Free title with Wrath of Heroes. PvP combat is without a doubt one of the most compelling experiences online. We’ve distilled down the essentials of that conflict — and delivered it with force.”

This sounds like it could be a whole lot of fun for free. BioWare showed a free demo and it looks incredible. Keep your eyes and ears posted for news about this exciting development and more from GamesCon 2011.
