New War of the Roses Content Next Month

Paradox Interactive announces the will soon be releasing new content for War of the Roses, starting with the November release of a weapons pack for their multiplayer melee action game. Word is: "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." Here's the whole story:

The battles within War of the Roses have been brutal to say the least, but soon players will receive a whole new arsenal to wield havoc with on the field. Paradox Interactive and Fatshark today revealed more details on new content coming to medieval melee action title War of the Roses, including brand new sets of weaponry and armor, additional game modes, and some wintry new maps.

This November, War of the Roses 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.

Come winter, knights should start preparing for two new challenging game modes and snow-laden maps as the war for the crown of England heads into the harshest months of the year. The first mode being introduced is Pitched Battle, where soldiers for the houses of Lancaster and York will soon learn to value their lives. The upcoming mode is launching into beta very soon, and interested players should keep an eye on the forum for more details.

Two new maps are also confirmed, inspired by the battles of Wakefield and Towton. With both of these historic skirmishes taking place in an extremely cold winter from December 1460 to March 1461, itís only fitting that 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.

More details on the newly announced modes and maps to come throughout Q4, for more details on War of the Roses please visit the titleís official site at http://www.waroftherosesthegame.com

Ya this gets pretty boring quickly. Not sure any of the other "realism" ones would fit the bill, I'm waiting for a RUNE 2.

So, uh, how's this making out? I thought it was single-player with AI but I guess not, it's a totally multi MMO-type. How is it? (Honestly, from the videos I've seen the operative word I think is 'glitchy'...lol)...

Honestly. I much prefer Chivalry Medieval Warfare over this. More skilled, more open (mods, server files) and more fun. WotR ends up being a bit repetitive the longer you play due to lack of game mode variety and maps.
