Good Game Review

Trailer showing new Wakefield map released, live stream coming Dec. 20



NEW YORK — December 17, 2012 — The battles between the houses of York and Lancaster show no signs of slowing down, with heroic knights remaining locked in combat as the cold winter months begin. Paradox Interactive has announced that the newest free content update for War of the Roses, entitled “Winter Has Arrived,” will be available Dec. 19 and includes new armor and weaponry, plus two brand new snow-covered maps based on the historic battles of Wakefield and Towton.

The truly pious will also be able to wield the Dagger and Sword of Mary for Christ’s Mass, inspired by medieval depictions of the Virgin Mary, laden with holy symbols. Both weapons will be available Friday, Dec. 21, at a special holiday price. But that mercy will expire on Dec. 26, at which point the prices will rise to the cost of a King's bounty!

Join Paradox Interactive this Thursday, Dec. 20, at 7pm GMT / 11am PST for a special War of the Roses broadcast as they demonstrate both new maps and show off all the new content. To get a front row seat to all the medieval mayhem, tune into the official Paradox Interactive TwitchTV channel at www.twitchtv.com/paradoxinteractive.

A new trailer for War of the Roses will help aspiring knights prepare themselves for the long, merciless winter. It may be viewed here: https://www.youtube....h?v=H4Y4wxIbzas

I read about it
Got disappoint that it is linear, was hoping for something like mount & blade
Alas, m&b2 Is on the works anyway, maybe they will borrow War of the Roses engine as engine exchange in paradox is strong

The archer in the trailer was holding the bow right handed. Yet the view was on the right. It looked so silly.

M&B would be glorious with these graphics. Wonder how large of a battle the engine can handle.

That made me go back for another look, I see him holding the bow with his left hand and drawing with the right.

Yeah, and it showed him holding the arrow at the right of the camera. It just looked strange for a first-person POV.

The game looks pretty good, though. Reminds me of Dark Messiah's multiplayer.

from last weeks Paradox Press event in a London Crypt

Total Biscuit likes War of the Roses


And this is quite nicely written (should be Yorkists and Lancastrians though)

It looks pretty fun. It has similar combat to M&B but is different style of game so they shouldn't really be compared. Plus all the footage you are seeing is pre alpha so there will be bugs that will eventually be fixed.

I read the thread title, saw, "death before dishonor" and I thought it was someone trying to make a Dragonlance game based off one of the side story books.  I was sorely disappointed when I actually read the thread and watched the trailer >:

That's because it IS M&B. Or at least the same engine. The game looks hillariously bad IMO and I seriously don't like the whole directional swinging thing they do in 'medieval FPS' games.

Crappy game in my view. I have seen better and it made little sense to me. I mean if you are going to release something make it a trailor that explains what the game is about. and At first I thought it would be like Assassin creed since it is a war of roses but since you have to do everything in order it made me go.. Uh next !

Anyway the WAr of the roses was a war between two families right ?. So you expect a lot more battles and assassinations and you going around as a family member trying to get support for your family. This game is.. What just fight fight fight .. Nope its not going to make it.

Edit - was that suppose to be a army.. Because its to small to be one.. And its only fighting which would be alright.. but I just feel its missing something important.. Like a good reason to fight all the time. And the reason behind it.. And you growing your army to fight the other families.. This just looks like mindless killing.

And on that combat note.. It just looked like crap. I mean a stab to the face their is not enough blood for that and it just looked horrible

The Wars of the Roses were a series of dynastic civil wars fought for the crown of England - not just a family feud.  

The mutiplayer gameplay is battles, if you do not enjoy team fighting against other people then I guess it is not for you.  The game is still pre alpha so you wouldn't expect them to show large scale battles yet, I expect that will come.

War of the Roses Behind-the-Scenes Odyssey: Episode I Debuts!

Features Dangerous Sword Fights and Americans Driving Dangerously in England

Hark, who goes there? It’s just us, an American and a Swede invading your land, United Kingdom. Paradox Interactive and Fatshark today released the first video in a new series of trailers for action melee combat title War of the Roses, giving an extensive behind the scenes look into the key locales and architecture of medieval England that have helped draw inspiration for the upcoming melee game.

Shot documentary-style on location in York, senior producer Gordon Van * and lead designer Mårten Stormdal don armor and ransack the now peaceful city, enabling viewers to see firsthand the buildings, landscapes, armor, and lore that will become a part of War of the Roses when the game launches later this year.

To view the first video in this new series, check out:

Totaling 20 competitors in all, these exclusively invited individuals include broadcasters SeaNanners , TotalBiscuit , Angry Joe , and many more, as well as developers from Paradox Interactive and a team of miscreants from TwitchTV.

I played it at PAXEAST this year and it looked really good and played just fine. I have an alpha key, but I have yet to install it as I just got a computer capable of running it. I'll post if I get a chance to play it.

I've only really seen the multiplayer but it looks good. Nice, visceral combat. Though I wish it was more like mount and blade, ie each player bringing in a little army and seeing those armies clash. A little strategy in there instead of just a deathmatch.

Looks kind of interesting, but more like an incomplete game. They need siege weapons, conquest mode, tactical formations, coordination, etc... I always wanted someone to just remake the old age of empires with better graphics, but exactly the same gameplay.

Haven't played any mount and blade games but the pvp in this looks really fun. I'm at a loss as to what the storymode consists of though.

? I thought the title gave it away.

The game could have done with  little more 'it'll be ready when it's ready' ^^  But even so it is fun to play and there will be more game modes and balancing asap.

Is the name supposed to be for a team, or a single player?

Either way, I suppose this would work:
