The next iteration of Warhammer Online will be a free-to-play online PC game, focused on three-way team combat, as announced by BioWare chief Ray Muzyka at an EA showcase in Germany for Gamescom today.

Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes extracts what our MMO-loving Kotaku writer Mike Fahey says was the best aspect of Warhammer Online and expands on it in a free-to-play game (that is subsidized with micro-transactions it's safe to assume).

The game is in development at BioWare Mythic.
