Featuring top-notch graphics portraying the fighting from an up-close-and-personal third-person perspective, War of the Roses features both online multiplayer and a deep single-player campaign. 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.

“This is exactly the kind of game we’ve wanted to do for a long time,” said Martin Wahlund, CEO of Fatshark. “Our team’s very passionate about multiplayer, and we’re using everything we’ve learned from our previous projects to capture the thrill of the pitched medieval battle. It’s amazing to hear Fredrik Wester [CEO of Paradox Interactive] call this a ‘dream game’ for them. They’re the perfect partner for us.”


“War of the Roses will give players face-to-face melee combat they rarely see in today’s third-person and first-person online shooters,” said Gordon Van Dyke, Senior Producer for Paradox Interactive. “We’re looking to steep players in that savagery, and challenge them to confront their opponents head-on in this unique multiplayer game".

“Fatshark is a really talented team with proven knowledge about this space, and we’re hugely excited about our partnership", he continued.
