This trailer offers another of Fatshark's live action clips leading up to the release of War of the Roses, their upcoming strategy game. Today we visit Warwick Castle, which did not feature in any historical battles, and will not appear in the game. But it is a castle, and that's pretty cool. They also hear from historians, one of whom goes all killjoy in explaining how fewer medieval combatants actually wore armor than most people think.

Not really, that's sort of what they made here. Right now I think they only have one game mode, deathmatch. No destruction, no real rag-doll physics, small skirmish maps.
No, I want age of empires in first person mode. have huge armies that are attacking each other where you can jump around from different positions and take possession of individual soldiers - sort of like what they do with open world racing games now. Either that or 32v32 castle siege using something like DICE's Frostbite engine for destruction and euphoria physics engine for sword combat etc.
