Start pounding those war drums: Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes is now in open beta. Who will take up the new and disgusting mantle of Drulg the Ogre, who, according to Bioware, “devours the competition?” Perhaps it will be you.

The servers are now open 7 days a week, and the in-game store has a wealth of new options. You can purchase new heroes, new skins, and new boots. So if you do decide to enter the open beta, you have no excuse for not dressing up for the occasion.

Our own Jim Squires put together a detailed preview of Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes last February. It’s a 3D fantasy MMO that has a special emphasis on PvP. Unlike most MMOs, you don’t necessarily create one character and become best friends. Rather, the idea is to shuffle through the game’s roster of warriors and pick the lady, gentleman, or ogre that works best for your needs.

Think you have what it takes to survive the warriors’ dawn in Wrath of Heroes? Sign up for the open beta.
