War of The Roses Guns of Burgundy update adds, well, guns

“Guns in War of the Roses?!” you splutter, but yes, friends, that’s what we have here. But not to worry – these aren’t exactly AK47s. The “handgonne” is such an early firearm it dates from a time when there was way more spelling to go around. It’s got quite a short range, but delivers a massive smacking and can perforate enemy shields.

The Guns of Burgundy update also adds a bunch of other stuff; a new map called Ravenspurn, and a few new more traditional bits of equipment – Brigandine Armour, the Kettle Sallet Helmet, Hand Pavise Shield and the Burgundian Side Sword.

The content drop also overhauls the UI to give you pops up when there are in-game events or news items to peruse, and it’s perhaps for this reason that the update requires you to download a whole new version of the game client weighing in at 6GB rather than apply a patch. Aww. On the other hand, these ongoing updates are free, which is pretty hard to complain about.

reading Henry IV atm, some War of Roses couldn’t hurt either :D

 

The updates for War of the Roses are always so huge, 5.7Gigs -_-

 

And it still isn’t as fun to play as Chiv.
