GDC 2012: First War of the Roses Released

March 8, 2012

Paradox Interactive and Fatshark have released the first gameplay trailer for their action game coming to the PC, War of the Roses. The video is the first in a series titled “Death Before Dishonor” which will be released in steady intervals until the game itself comes out later this year. The game will feature both single and multiplayer action with over 60 weapons, plenty of skills and challenges and more.

The trailer is surprisingly brutal in a fashion not often seen these days. Numerous people get stabbed in the face while they’re defenseless on their back, a dude gets shot by a crossbow while riding a horse and quite a few people get their face smashed in. It’s all rather intriguing.

Check out the trailer after the break.

He's a huge comic nerd in the best sense of the term, with a particular love for the Creator Owned movement.
