New War of the Roses Video Focuses on Ranged Combat

on April 5, 2012 5:00 PM

Paradox Interactive published a Developer’s Diary today to talk about the many different ways you’ll be able to shoot someone’s eye out in the upcoming IP, War of the Roses. Before jumping into the ranged combat system, Senior Producer Gordon Van Dyke explains that melee will still be a huge part of the game.

Ranged weapons will include the flintlock, crossbow and the tried and true bow and arrow. Combat will also have different reloading times for each weapon that might make or break a strategy. Watch the complete video after the cut to see how far a knight flies from taking a bolt to the chest.
