This November, War of the Roses, a squad combat game that transports players back in time to the battle-ravaged, dynastic civil war era of 15th century England, will see its first new content drop, which will introduce a wide variety of weapons, including a horn-spanned crossbow for ranged enthusiasts and a Hospitaller pollaxe made famous by the company of knights bearing the same name. Players will also be able to get their gritty hands on the Milanese Knights Hospitaller crafted Heavy Armor, which can be customized with any of 10 different paint options, as well as an assortment of new visors and one new helmet.
This winter, two new challenging game modes and snow-laden maps will be added to the game. In the first mode, named Pitched Battle, soldiers for the houses of Lancaster and York will soon learn to value their lives. The upcoming mode is launching into beta very soon. Inspired by the battles of Wakefield and Towton, both maps introduce a new weather mechanic that will set snow and sleet against ally and adversary alike.
Content updates will automatically add new items to be acquired in the game. The system is designed to reward players who have invested a lot of playing hours into the game and items will be immediately available for players to redeem though accumulated in-game currency. For those who are too impatient, there are also options to purchase in-game currency to secure content.
