Mercia: Fractured Realms is set to travel into PlayStation Home this week in North America. The ambitious endeavour aims to deliver a full-scale free-to-play role playing game within the virtual world. We’ve heard some pretty great things about this, so you might want to go and check it out.

The game can be played in single-player or co-operatively, and takes place in "visually dazzling landscapes inhabited by supernatural creatures and full of spellbinding sorcery”. You’ll be able to choose between three different classes, including the Ranger, Fighter and Defender. As for loot, well, there’s the promise of Home rewards as you progress through the game. That's us hooked, then.
