Latest War Of The Roses Trailer Is All Bolts n’ Arrows

It won’t appeal to everyone, but one of the games I am most looking forward to this year is Fatshark’s War of the Roses. Published by Paradox Interactive, the title combines third person action gameplay with a multiplayer foil akin to your everyday online shooter.

Speaking of shooting things, War of the Roses isn’t all chainmail and sword-swinging; players will also be able to slot a cross/bow into their archaic armoury.


There’s no solid release date for the game, though invites for an upcoming beta are due in the next few weeks.

  1. Here’s to hoping Fatshark decide to release it as a download on PS3. I loved Lead & Gold from them although admittedly it didn’t get the support it deserved.

    • Same here, I really enjoyed Lead & Gold too.

      I think the story here is that L&G probably didn’t sell all that well (at least not on PlayStation). As a result, Fatshark is looking to get the game out on PC rather than consoles first.

      I wouldn’t say WotR for consoles is completely out of the question. If it really takes off, then I don’t see why Paradox wouldn’t consider a port.

      • Never even thought about L&G sales wise but that makes a lot of sense.

  2. This looks pretty great, reminds me a lot of Mount & Blade.

    • Definitely has that gameplay vibe going.

      Inevitably, WotR will break down into two dudes running at eachother, taking sweeps with their swords, and then running backwards. Sounds shite on paper, but I have a good feeling it will work very nicely.

      • If this game worked with bigger maps I have no doubt it would be amazing, I mean on Mount & Blade teamwork has always come about in every game I have been in. This is just like a TDM version of M&B really. Not complaining though I have no doubt the modding community can make this game a hell of a lot better.

  3. I thought this was about the American Radio Show at first and thought “what?”.
    Lead and Gold was fun, so they have my interest.
