Nexon has announced an early access release date for Warhaven, their new free-to-play multiplayer medieval action game.
Warhaven is launching via early access on September 21st for Windows PC (via Steam) – news confirmed at Gamescom 2023.
Here’s a rundown on the previously announced game, plus a new trailer:
ENTER THE FRAY
Warhaven’s dynamic melee combat rewards new recruits and veteran players alike. Choose from a roster of unique soldiers, each with their own motivations for fighting beneath the banner of Warhaven.
Coordinate with your squad before each battle and outwit your foes with tactical maneuvers. Fight to control footholds and the powerful engines of war they contain.
Soldiers who excel are rewarded with the chance to incarnate as an avatar of the Immortals, mighty gods who dominate the battlefield. Seize immortality and swing the pendulum of fate in your favor!
INTUITIVE, TACTICAL COMBAT
Newcomers will adapt to Warhaven’s combat system easily, while masters will refine their skills with every match. Swinging your weapon or raising your guard is as simple as clicking your mouse…but players looking to challenge themselves can uncover the true potential of the game’s fast-paced and nuanced combat.
Develop strategies and customize your playstyle, but above all else—trust your instincts.
SALVATION COMES THROUGH STRUGGLE
Earn glory in bold conflicts across multiple maps. Experience battles on different scales, and jump into massive brawls, tight-knit teamplay, as well as life-or-death duels. Cut down multiple opponents with a single well-placed sword swing or shatter an enemy into an explosion of stone with a devastating blow of your hammer. Keep the pressure on your enemies by taking control of cannons, ballistae, and war machines.
FIND YOUR PATH TO IMMORTALITY
Switch between six different soldier classes and use their unique weapons and abilities to shape the battlefield in your favor. Every soldier has the potential to incarnate as an Immortal, and each Immortal fights with their own distinct powers. Offer your faith to the Immortal most suited to the obstacles you face—from the devastating swordplay of Martyr to the long-ranged magic of Raven.
