    If they do half as good a job on this as they did on Warband, then I will be getting this first day its out. Cant beat Warband and Crpg mod online, its epic! Can't wait; although unfortunately knowing Paradox there will be bugs aplenty at first. Still..if people havent tried Warband yet give it a go if you are interested in this. Really recommend the Crpg mod too...although it is very addictive; and a steep learning curve.

    Paradox are just the Publishers, FatShark are the developers on this one, TaleWorlds did Mount & Blade.

    But looks like a fun game.

    War of the Roses features both online multiplayer and a single-player campaign

    Ah of course Kalisnoir; you're right there! Oops, wucked me mords up! TaleWorlds certainly got there in the end with Mount and Blade after a few updates; hope FatShark can continue with a great foundation.

    Having said that, I still havent checked out the latest Mount and Blade, With Fire and Sword; need to check that out for a few months too! Dont really see firearms being too enjoyable in that format, think this new one looks more the ticket for me. Will wait for a few reviews maybe, as its a different dev. As much as there were issues with Warband, I hope the core gameplay remains similar. It looks like a spiced up version from what I can see, which works!

    War of the Roses is best described as Battlefield set in the late middle ages. Up to 64 players will slash and stab their way through pitched battles or sieges, their carbines replaced by crossbows and their sniper rifles swapped for swords, all of which naturally makes combat a much more intimate affair. More often than not, you'll be staring your opponent in the face as you strike them down or suffer their anger, and even archers and crossbowmen will find they frequently have to get up close and personal to finish the job they started.
