War of the Roses “Kingmaker” Edition Announced

Paradox Interactive, a publisher of games and a seeker of the throne, and Fatshark, valiant knights trapped in the modern era, today announced War of the Roses: Kingmaker, a gold edition of the game which allows aspiring knights a clear path to the throne by including all the top-notch weapons, armor, and perks that have been released since the title’s inception in October 2012. The new edition will be available in late Q1 2013.

In War of the Roses: Kingmaker, loyalists to the house of York or Lancaster will now have access to the content available since release, including the previously exclusive armor sets for both the red and white rose. Kingmaker will also introduce two new game modes—Assault and Assault Castle—where knights will face new attack and defense scenarios that aim to truly test their skill as a team.

Review: Chivalry: Medieval Warfare

May I brag a bit?  When it comes to virtual battlefields, I consider myself to be quite the grizzled vet.  It's doesn't matter if it is the deadly combined arms environment of Battlefield 3 or the high intensity close quarters combat of Black Ops 2, I just laugh at the dangers of the modern battlefield.  Laugh!  It is only with relish that I grab my rifle and rush off to engage my eager foe.  So, that being the case...why do I find myself quaking at the battlefield dangers of Chivalry: Modern Warfare?  Why do I get an uneasy feeling in the pit of my stomach as I face off against a foe armed with a nasty looking axe?  Why do I find myself needing to hit the 'C' key for a war cry just to put some steel in my backbone? The answer is simple: Torn Banner has managed to produce not just one of the most entertaining multiplayer games in a long time, but has also managed to produce a game that is downright frightening in its medieval hack and slash brutality.   For these reasons and more, it is a title not to be missed.

GDC 2012: First In-game Trailer for War of the Roses Released

You’re wiping blood off the chinked armor you donned today, a mixture of your own sanguine fluid and the foe lying dead at your feet. Good thing you chose the poleaxe over a sword, it was the extra reach that gave you this particular victory, but will it save you from the crossbow bolt zipping toward your head? It won’t. You’ve just encountered your first glimpse into War of the Roses, and the battle has you thirsting for more.

Paradox Interactive and Fatshark today unveiled the first-ever gameplay trailer for War of the Roses, an ambitious and gritty multiplayer action game coming to PC, giving players a front row seat to an epic medieval battle taking place this fall—their own. The newly released video is the first in a set of gameplay trailers dubbed the “Death Before Dishonor” series, scheduled to be released in steady intervals until the game’s launch this fall. Over 60 different weapons to choose from, tiered skill trees within a fully-fleshed leveling system, team-based tactical challenges as well as deathmatches for soloists, and steel-in-your-face action are just a taste of what War of the Roses will offer.

War of the Roses

A team-based multiplayer melee combat experience, War of The Roses sees players and their band of knights going toe-to-toe with their opponents using authentic and visceral weapons of the time period including broad swords, long bows and battle-axes.

Built on a stunning graphics engine which vividly portrays the fighting from an up-close-and-personal third-person perspective, War of the Roses features both online multiplayer and a single-player campaign. Players will get the chance to lead their warrior through a rich progression system, gaining upgrades and unlocking new content on their path from filthy peasant to unstoppable armored killing machine.
