Fatshark and Paradox Interactive have today announced the release of their gritty medieval third-person combat war game War of the Roses. The game features a wide range of military weapons including brutal crossbows and greatswords, plus a devastating finishing move for those who have been downed.
The king has fallen with no clear successor and two powerful English houses are vying for the coveted crown of England. You step into armor donning the vibrant, albeit tarnished, colors of your liege lord and march alongside your fellow knights into a battle frayed with confusion and the clash of steel on steel. With arrows and bolts grazing past your cheeks, you head deep into the skirmish in an attempt to show your enemies exactly which rose is the most powerful. Sharpen your blades and prepare yourself for War of the Roses, where skill is not an unlock.
Currently the release hasn't gone so well, with a huge server issue for anyone trying to play above 16 player games, plus the instability of having only one server provider. A recent status update
on the forums has confirmed that the server issues have been halved, however some may still be affected.
