Paradox and Fatshark have revealed that War of the Roses is set to become a franchise with the release of War of the Vikings early next year.

The new standalone game will be set in England and feature the Norsemen battling the Saxons with authentically medieval weaponry and items over 64-player battlefields.

I cant freaking wait!!!!


I just hope FS are still working on game two and three of Krater…


Hopefully they speed up the combat and make it less clunky.

Needs to be more like M&B: Warband.


War of the roses sucks. Mount and blade warband was better. And it had a fun singleplayer.

And chivalry: medieval warfare trumps all.


*starts growing beard in anticipation*


lets hope they get this one right, i’m keen!

Nasty Wet Smear

Can… Can we have a single player one yet?
