fans can be forgiven if they took to scratching their heads in puzzlement as BioWare-Mythic
announced the Wrath of Heroes
MOBA at last summer's Gamescom
convention. After all, here was a new fantasy title that was brazen enough to borrow the IP and arguably the best gameplay mechanic (scenarios) from an existing MMO that's still alive and kicking.
The distinction between the two games is up for discussion in a new Warhammer Online
interview at Stratics. "There is no direct link currently between your WAR
characters. That being said, we plan on giving WAR
subscribers benefits in WOH
," explains producer James Casey. "We are also looking at other ways to connect them and have the benefits go both ways."
The interview also touches on the next WAR
update (currently slated for the PTS next month), as well as the fact that the devs are considering a level-cap increase on the game's endless trial offering.
