NEW YORK — March 21, 2013 — Paradox Interactive, a publisher of games and a supplier of boiling oil, today unleashed a new premium version of War of the Roses, the medieval squad-based knight combat title from Fatshark. War of the Roses: Kingmaker arms players with a wide variety of arsenal and armor from the Knights Hospitaller, Gallowglass Mercenary, Winter Has Arrived, and Outside the Law updates, as well as three new maps and Pitched Battle mode added since launch and the newly released Assault mode, launched specifically for this latest version of the multiplayer action title. War of the Roses: Kingmaker will separate the nobles from the rabble and put knights on the fast-track to glory, ready to fight and die for York or Lancaster – and go down in history as true heroes.
War of the Roses: Kingmaker represents an ideal opportunity for players to jump into the ongoing chaos of medieval England, suitable for swordplay on any screen thanks to the recent additions of full controller support, and support for Steam's “Big Picture” mode. It also marks the debut of the new Assault game mode in War of the Roses, transforming the all-out brawl into a struggle to breach a stronghold – or defend it from invaders. Perch your archers on the battlements, get into formation, and remember, above all else... have fun storming the castle.
Paradox Interactive will be hosting a live stream today that will pit Executive Producer Gordon Van Dyke against the masses in a demonstration of the new Assault mode. Watch as Van Dyke tries his hardest to not curse on camera when the broadcast begins today at 7 p.m. GMT (12 p.m. PDT) on the official TwitchTV channel for Paradox Interactive at
War of the Roses: Kingmaker is available today for $19.99 on digital distributors everywhere.
