Getting Civilized: Heroes of Three Kingdoms

I am willing to bet hard cash money you don't get that horsey immediately.

Going through the lists of E3 games to see if there’s anything which I missed, and I hit on Heroes of the Three Kingdoms. It’s a PvP-focused free-to-play MMO… yeah, stop that now. It’s got a few things which make it more interesting. Its setting isn’t the trad fantasy one… but frankly, when your combat looks like it does, it may as well be. Secondly, it isn’t class based in a traditional way. It’s weapon based, with your role changing depending on what you choose to tool up with. Finally – and most RPS-interestingly – in the end game, after you’ve formed legions and conquered cities, leads to a large-scale board-game which apparently involves keeping your population happy and taxation and similar. The trailer below is mainly the fighting, but PCG grabbed a quick hand-phone shot of the map to give you an idea. If that interests you, you can try and sign up for the closed beta on the game’s site.
