Warhaven launched in Early Access for PC via Steam today.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
Warhaven is a free-to-play player-versus-player medieval fantasy combat game for two teams of up to 16 players each. Choose your soldier, lead your squad into combat, and incarnate as a powerful IMMORTAL to turn the tide of war!
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!
Discover a New World
Immerse yourself in the captivating world of Warhaven, which blends the medieval and modern to create a fantasy world unlike any other. Dive into the rich lore of Herarth and discover its history, which draws from diverse real-world cultures for everything from armor design to mythological creatures.
Assume the mantle of a divine Immortal, powerful deities fueled by the unwavering devotion of their mortal followers. Overwhelm enemy squads single-handedly and take control of the battlefield!
Salvation Comes through Struggle
Earn glory in epic 32-player battles across multiple maps, which strike the perfect balance between massive melee brawls and intense 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.
Plan, Coordinate, Conquer
Teamwork is the key to victory. The more you collaborate with your team, the more you’ll discover Warhaven’s hidden strategic possibilities. Earn Squad Medals by fighting alongside your allies and use them to summon powerful Relics.
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.
Classic Game Modes with a New Edge
Warhaven’s intricate maps and special modes offer refreshing tactical gameplay. In Dominion, capture and defend footholds scattered across the map to gain special battlefield advantages. In Skirmish, face off against the enemy in a brutal brawl to dominate the central footholds. Scatter your opponents with devastating cannon bombardments or clear a path for your allies with mounted weapons.
Never give up, even in the face of ruin—your team’s last stand can always bring you victory.
