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


By on June 22, 2013 at 10:40 am

“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.
