Warhaven, the free-to-play multiplayer action game, is coming to consoles early next year, after being already available on PC through Steam early access. The PVP medieval-fantasy warfare game developed by the South Korean gaming studio, Nexon, is officially releasing on Steam today.
There is no specific date announced yet for the console-version release, although it is confirmed to only come out on the modern consoles, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and, Xbox Series S consoles. The game’s minimum system requirement isn’t too much, so most desktop specs should handle the game quite well.
Warhaven System Requirements Revealed by Steam
Warhaven‘s system requirements recommend a desktop with the latest build of either Windows 10 or 11, and an SSD with at least 40 GB of available space. As for the processor, either Intel’s 10th-generation i7 or AMD’s Ryzen 5 3700X is recommended along with 16 GB of RAM. Finally, the recommended GPU is either NVIDIA’s RTX 2060 or AMD’s RX 5600XT.
An SSD isn’t mentioned under minimum system requirements, so gamers with an HDD should still be able to boot the game fine, albeit with very basic graphics settings. Other requirements mention Intel’s 6th-gen i5 processor or AMD’s Ryzen 3 1300X with at least 16 GB RAM, paired with NVIDIA’s GTX 750 Ti or AMD’s Radeon RX 460.
Warhaven Console Version Might Not Feature 16v16
The large-scale multiplayer game has mentioned up to 16 players a side on the PC version, while the console announcement trailers have teased squads of 12 players a side. Announcement trailers for the consoles both mention 12v12 PVP battles, without any other differences. Warhaven is said to be a dynamic melee combat game where players can choose from a roster of 6 soldiers and 4 martyrs.
Warhaven has the following modes – Dominion, Onslaught, Reclamation, Team Deathmatch, and Arms Race. The game features five maps in the game, each of which can host a select number of game modes.
- Moshabarg – Dominion, Onslaught Mode, Team Deathmatch
- Gella – Dominion, Onslaught Mode, Team Deathmatch
- Podden – Dominion, Reclamation, Team Deathmatch
- Sihan – Dominion, Team Deathmatch
- Hwara – Arms Race, Team Deathmatch, Reclamation

Early reviews of the game have drawn comparisons to Ubisoft’s For Honor, with Warhaven being a more casual version. A 32-player battle is sure to be a slaughter fest, as players run into the battlefield haphazardly swinging their weapons. One of the key features of the game includes gamers incarnating into an ultra-powerful immortal, once they reach enough kill points. These immortals include the following characters:
- Martyr – A melee combat specialist immortal
- Raven – An immortal of long-range firebombs
- Hoet – An immortal of defenses and mass-revivals
- Darkgale – An immortal of high-speed charges
Players will see the four martyrs shown as a choice they can choose to become an immortal, transforming into the chosen martyr’s character. An immortal can snowball over to the enemy land and mass-murder the opponents in a ridiculous fashion. Players will still need to strategize with their team over the choice for the immortal and turn the tide to win every battle.
Each battle in Warhaven can be entertaining and chaotic at the same time, as players stay engaged for hours with large maps to get used to, watching canon balls take out a bunch of players and immortals go on a homicidal run.
