It has been some time since I posted about HeroWarz, so allow me to re-introduce the tile to everyone. HeroWarz is an upcoming action online game developed by new studio, Astorm. Astorm is founded by Yoon Jong Kim, former producer of Nexon’s Dungeon & Fighter and Cyphers.
HeroWarz is an action online game with an isometric view, where players choose from different characters to play, each with unique abilities and skills. For the Open Beta phase, there will be 50 maps and 31 instances, which will make for a rather huge PvE world.
Moving on to PvP, HeroWarz uses a simple 4 vs 4 mode, with the map structure somewhat similar to current MOBA’s, with towers, bases and minions. Here is the interesting part, as HeroWarz will launch with 8 playable PvE characters, while there will be 28 in the PvP mode.
I am guessing characters will first launch in PvP, before making their transition to the PvE mode. Another interesting to note, though using similar resources, PvE and PvP development is separated into 2 teams behind the scenes to ensure efficient content development.
