Warhammer fans might be knee deep in Space Marine right now, but there's another upcoming title on the horizon coming from the tabletop world of Games Workshop. Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroesis coming to PC by way of BioWare and Electronic Arts. Based on the 2008 MMO Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, this follow-up is an 18 player team-based PvP title. Oh and did I mention it's free?
Wrath of Heroes is set to join EA's growing catalog of titles you can "Play4Free" sometime later this year. In the mean time we have some video, and there are screens in the gallery below. Also, if you're interested in a chance to join the beta (I just did) you can sign up right here. It's great to see Warhammer taking off as a franchise and I for one am ready to take a stab at anything that brings Games Workshop's tabletop games to life.
