Warhammer Online is a popular online multiplayer roleplaying game. This game wasn’t developed by a big company like Blizzard or Ubisoft. It started small and over the years it grew to a popular online game. It has a huge following of passionate players that periodically take this game to the next level.
The game was launched before World of Warcraft. Over time, it developed a huge franchise of related games. The most popular Warhammer related games are: Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine and Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes.
The game has a free to play option for people to try it for free. Soon after the launch, the free to play option was expanded so more people could play it. The free to play offer attracted quite a lot of people and the game started to flourish yet again.
The game is all about war, strategy and tactics. It’s a fantasy based game where your character can be part of the Order or Destruction factions. The Order faction includes the following races: Dwarf, Empire Humans and High Elf. The Destruction phase has the following races: Greenskins, Chaos Humans and Dark Elves.
The character will level up and with each level you will unlock new cool features, spells and abilities. The commands are easy to learn and you will quickly and easily feel at home.
The levels of the players are divided into 4 tiers. The first tier comprises of the first 10 levels from 1 to 10. The second one includes 10 levels from 11 to 20. The same rule applies for the last 2 tiers.

You can also team up with other players and achieve together different public quests. Their purpose is to help your characters gain experience that will be useful in the later stages of the game. One of their drawbacks is that it takes awhile to find enough players to team up with.
Probably the most interesting aspect of the game is to play against other players. The feature is called PvP and it lets you destroy the characters of other players, including newbies. The fights are action packed and you will have plenty of them. The only problem with the PvP fights is that there are very few characters in the Tier 2 and 3.
