A free-to-play fantasy MMORPG that’s been a “huge success” in Japan, Weapons of Mythology: New Age is coming to Europe in Q4 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, IDC/Games and Gamemag announced today.

Featuring both PvE and PvP content, Weapons of Mythology includes dozens of dungeons, PvP battlegrounds, dozens of mounts, pet, and “a challenging PvE against impressive foes.” It will be localized in English, German, Spanish, French, Polish and Italian.

Here’s the description:

Set during the period of Chu Han Contention, the game focuses on two rival sects: The Zhan and the Jie, serving different kings, and fighting for the ultimate ancient Relic. Meanwhile, the evil Morkans seize the opportunity and rise from the underworld to cause havoc across the land. In times of war and chaos, the one who wields the Relic will be the only true savior.

Some of the game features:

  • A unique combat system based on relics which add extra abilities to the characters and grant hundreds of combinations
  • Pet system
  • Guild system with unique abilities and guild wars
  • PvP battlefield based on DOTA style map with team and league ladders
  • Complex dungeons that will be a challenge even for the most experienced players

The first closed beta is expected in September 2016, and you can sign up for it over here. “Be ready to participate in exciting PVPs fights, epic boss hunts, and guild territory wars,” they add. “Five character classes are available: Vajra, Ascension, Solar, Lotus and Mist.”

There was no word on a North American release for Weapons of Mythology.
