Mercia, PlayStation Home's first RPG, arrives this week

Mercia: Fractured Realms arrives on PlayStation Home this Thursday. It's Home's first free-to-play role-playing game, and follows the recent release of freemium shooter No Man's Land on the platform.

Like No Man's Land, Mercia apparently isn't straying too far from its genre's blueprints. Players can choose between Ranger, Fighter, and Defender classes, and these brave avatars can fight alone or co-operatively across "visually dazzling landscapes inhabited by supernatural creatures and full of spellbinding sorcery." There's also the incentive of exclusive Home rewards in the RPG, if that's your kind of thing.
