Paradox Interactive Attends PAX East 2012

War of the Roses and The Showdown Effect coming to Boston
Paradox Interactive announced today their lineup for PAX East 2012 contains a selection of their best upcoming titles to PAX East, including medieval multiplayer massacre-er War of the Roses and The Showdown Effect, the next project from the team behind Magicka. The company expects visitors at booth #368.
Offering a unique third-person melee combat experience, War of the Roses allows players to select from 60 weapon types to pulverize their opponents whichever way they can in this epic and gritty multiplayer title. The game features team-based objectives as well as gruesome PVP opportunities (a.k.a. executions).
Developed by Arrowhead Game Studios, in The Showdown Effect players will enter a sidescrolling 2.5D world and battle opponents to the death by taking on the role of their favorite action movie archetypes. You can become a cliché action star and duke it out with other Rambos, retired cops, and that one guy who "lost his identity" by using a variety of weaponry and hundreds of customizable options to creatively kill your friends.
