Warhaven Is a 16v16 Multiplayer Warfare Game that Looks to Redefine the Sword Action Genre

Must read

Warhaven isn’t trying to create another epic medieval war game, instead, it wants to take what fans love about that period and fuse it with modern elements to redefine the sword action genre. While the battles may seem chaotic, Warhaven puts you in control of one of six warriors and back-to-back with 15 others to take down your enemies to secure an incredible victory with style and power. This third-person combat experience is meant to be visceral and weighty. You will feel every swing and hit, plus taking down your foes will feel as rewarding as ever.

Warhaven is an upcoming free-to-play game, and so to help you with the wait we are breaking down five reasons why you and your friends should give it a shot this summer.

Battle with Six Different Warriors And Turn the Tide of Battle by Becoming an Immortal

When players step onto the battlefield in Warhaven, they will choose from six powerful warriors with unique strengths and weaknesses that need to be mastered or exploited to succeed. For those who are into a classical swordsman, you’ll feel right at home with Blade, a warrior who stands in the frontline to confront enemies with his mighty sword. If you prefer accuracy and precision, Spike utilizes a long spear to take down all who stand in her way. She specializes in penetrating enemy armor and parrying incoming attacks. Truly the Meister of combat.

For those who are fans of bulky tanks, Guardian and Warhammer are the grab-and-go. Guardian, as his name proclaims, uses a hefty shield that devastates others by bashing them backward or as a battering ram of sorts.

Warhammer, on the other hand, is a much more offensive tank. He swings his two-handed bludgeon that takes out multiple enemies at once and busts that frontline wide open.

Smoke is a trickster and a healer who can redirect enemy projectiles and heal her teammates at crucial moments. Lastly, Hush is a new warrior who will be joining Warhaven this summer. Unlike most other heavily armored warriors, she slices and dices through the battlefield with her dagger and makes full use of her agility to disorient enemies.

All these warriors can transform into an Immortal as they perform their roles while racking up kills and assists or capturing and defending objectives on the battlefield. The Immortals- Martyr, Darkgale, Hoet, and Raven – are game-changing warriors that can literally turn the tide of battle when brought forward at the right moment.

Team Up with 15 Other Players to Secure Victory on the Battlefield With Powerful Tools of War

Warhaven is a game all about warfare and fighting alongside 15 other players in your quest for glory. It will be chaotic but don’t expect to mindlessly left-click and swing your weapons. You will need to be tactical with your attacks. The fray will constantly shift back and forth between a large-scale brawl and an intense skirmish due to the dynamics of the game. There are also ballistae, canons, siege engines, and more that will help you take down the opposing team. No matter where you stand, teamwork is the key, never forget that!

Warhaven is Easy to Learn but Hard to Master

The team behind Warhaven built it to be as accessible as possible. When you first jump onto the battlefield, fighting is as simple as using left-click to swing your weapon and right-click to raise your guard. However, there is so much more to learn from each battle, including different warrior playstyles, their strengths and weaknesses, strategically using siege weapons, the right timings to becoming an Immortal, and so much more.

Dominion and Skirmish Will Keep Players Coming Back For More

At launch, Warhaven will feature two exciting modes called Dominion and Skirmish. In Dominion, teams work together to capture footholds across the map and gain an advantage. The key to victory is strategically knowing which footholds to focus on and let go. In Skirmish, the controllable footholds are focused on the center of the map alongside the siege weapons and various tools. Skirmish is meant to be chaotic and more focused on the center of the map, whereas Dominion is for the strategists and can play out in many different scenarios from battle to battle.

Warhaven Is a Community-Driven Experience

Teamwork is of great importance in Warhaven, and so is fostering a positive and thriving community. Work together to earn Squad medals and build powerful Relics in the battle that let you respawn faster, fight better, and more. Outside of the game, the team also wants to support the game with tournaments, events, and open communication channels on Discord and beyond that will help them build the game the community wants and deserves.

Warhaven is coming soon and will be free-to-play. To stay up to date be sure to follow them over on Twitter and for more information, be sure to check out our Warhaven preview and Warhaven’s official reveal trailer in 4K. Don’t forget to wishlist Warhaven on Steam as well!
