War of the Roses Announced and GamesCom 2011 Screens/Trailer

A team-based multiplayer melee combat experience
Paradox Interactive today announced War of the Roses, a new game that transports players back in time to the battle-ravaged, dynastic civil war era of 15th century England where ownership of the throne of England was brutally fought over between supporters of two rival branches of the Royal House of Plantagenet - the house of Lancaster (the reds) and the house of York (the whites). In the works at Fatshark, War of the Roses will pull players into a team-based multiplayer melee combat experience, putting their band of knights right in the thick of chaotic battles against opposing hordes armed with swords, battleaxes, longbows and other iconic medieval classics. Players will get the chance to lead their knight through a progression system, gaining upgrades and unlocking new content on their path from filthy peasant to unstoppable armored killing machine. War of the Roses will be available in Q2 2012 - a few screenshots and a trailer have been added in our download area.
