Enjoy fast paced mmo style combat within multiple thematic environments. Choose your Hero and put them to the test. Change your Heroes mid-match to ensure victory. Reap the benefits of conquest and recruit additional Heroes to your banner. Then prove your mettle by clawing your way to the top of the leaderboards.

My question is, what is MMO about this? 6v6v6 that's 18 people. If it's just PVP....I don't see how it's "massive".

They're not claiming it's an MMO... they're claiming it's a "new online game" that is F2P.

Basically... it looks like they ripped out what they thought was the "most fun" from the Warhammer MMO... and slapped it up as an individual online game.

It was probably easier and cheaper to do that, than to convert the whole MMO into a F2P game with a proper store.

That said... I bet it will still suck. Same buggy engine... same lame developers. (Even if they were renamed to Bioware)

I am actually pretty stoked about this, MMO type game (even tho its only 18 players, not really "mmorpg" that is straight up PvP ... Sure why not ?

Bring it!

What the... from Bioware? Lol. Just rename that studio already.

Also, WO:WoH, nothing can go wrong with this initialism.(the non-acronym type of abbreviation)

Well, the trouble is that EA keeps renaming other studios Bioware. They now have 5 different development studios in different cities named Bioware. This game is by the studio formerly known as Mythic, best known for Dark Age of Camelot.

Why with another Warhammer MMO and slew of other Warhammer gmes did anyone feel this was warranted, or would do well?
