More game modes, maps, weapons coming to War of the Roses

War of the Roses

By on October 16, 2012 at 5:36 pm

If you’re loving War of the Roses but struggling with the level of variety in the game, Fatshark have got you covered. Several new game modes are on their way next month, including ‘Pitched Battle, which will give each player only one life and no respawns, and an as-yet unrevealed ‘attack mode’ which presumably splits the team into offensive and defensive objective-based gameplay.

New weapons are also incoming: a halberd, a gothic mace, a horn-spanned crossbow, an additional arming sword, an Italian side sword, a rondel dagger and a pollaxe. A new set of heavy armour from the Knights Hospitaller and a new helmet are also coming in. Two additional winter wonderland battlefields based on the Battle of Wakefield, in December 1460, and the Battle of Towton, in March 1461, are also coming in.

“We’re also testing a sniffing tracker on servers to help identify those using speed hacks that are more common,” said Fatshark’s senior producer Gordon Van Dyke. “We’ve actually had our QA team use some hacks in testing to help us combat them.”

So I pre-ordered the game on Steam and got instant access to the beta. Beta play was great and I thoroughly enjoyed the game. Since full release the game has not worked (crashes every time I’ve launched a multiplayer or single player battleground game), there’s no evidence of my pre-order goodies I was supposed to receive and I’ve had no feedback from the paradoxplaza forums asking for assistance. Apparently rolling back NVIDIA drivers was supposed to fix the problem, as I learned from teh internets, but it didn’t. Best money I’ve ever spent…

 

New things to spend my millions of coins on, cool.

The game is full of mostly terrible players, very few are actually half decent at it I find, much like the SEA world of tanks server.
