Paradox Interactive and Fatshark today revealed more details on new content coming to medieval melee action title War of the Roses.
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 and a Hospitaller pollaxe. Players will also be able to get their 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, two new game modes and snow-laden maps are expected. The first mode being introduced is Pitched Battle, which is launching into beta soon.
Two new maps are also confirmed, inspired by the battles of Wakefield and Towton. With both of these historic skirmishes taking place in the winter, both maps introduce a new weather mechanic that will set snow and sleet against ally and adversary alike.
More details on the newly announced modes and maps to come throughout Q4 2012. For more on the game, read our War of the Roses Review.
