It’s almost time to throw down the gauntlet.

After three years of development, Nexon's free-to-play PvP game Warhaven launches today on PC at 6 PM (PST). The game promises a medieval-fantasy sword fighting experience with distinct classes with different weapons and abilities to choose from: sword, spear, hammer, shield and mace, curved blade, and healing staff. There’s also stronger characters to transform into where players can wield a sword and shield, fire staff, or cudgel, as well as be a horseman with a spear.

The battles, featuring regiments of 16 against 16 in larger modes, are filled with epic magic-infused, action-packed melee combat. Players can coordinate with their squad, employ tactical maneuvers, and fight for control over key positions and powerful war engines. Warhaven offers various game modes too, including Dominion, Onslaught, Arms Race, Team Deathmatch, and Capture the Flag.

Also, teamwork is emphasized in the game, with collaboration leading to hidden strategic opportunities and the ability to summon powerful Relics using Squad Medals. The game's world combines medieval and modern elements, offering rich lore inspired by real-world cultures, mythical creatures, and divine Immortals that players can assume the role of to dominate the battlefield.
