Get Inside the Developers’ Armor in New War of the Roses Video

NEW YORK — September 21, 2012 — Paradox Interactive and Fatshark today released the latest video in their behind-the-scenes series documenting the design and creation of War of the Roses. The forthcoming medieval combat title required senior producer Gordon Van Dyke and lead designer Mårten Stormdal to undertake rigorous research and combat training, and spend several days pretending to be kings. That grueling experience is now available to witness on video below:

In addition, the War of the Roses team has issued a challenge, in the form of a competition, to see who can truly inspire terror on the battleground just by their look alone. Paradox is looking for the most historically inspired charge—the decorative design on a shield or coat of arms—with the selected winner having their own charge featured in War of the Roses after launch. And please keep in mind, those these charges will be splattered in blood, let’s keep them “clean” until then. Contest details and submission guidelines can be viewed here:
