About This Content

War of the Roses: Kingmaker is a team based third person action game set in 15th century England. Two rival branches of the Royal House of Plantagenet - the house of Lancaster (the reds) and the house of York (the whites) – fight over the throne, and the player is thrown into the fray.

War of the Roses: Kingmaker arms players with a wide variety of arsenal and armor from the Knights Hospitaller, Gallowglass Mercenary, Winter Has Arrived, and Outside the Law updates. Three new maps and two additional gameplay modes, including the Assault Mode released specifically for this version of the multiplayer action title are also included. War of the Roses: Kingmaker will separate the nobles from the rabble and put knights on the fast-track to glory, ready to fight and die for York or Lancaster – and go down in history as true heroes.

It has rather steep learning curve but melee is very colorful and deep. The way you have to use every aspect of your weapons(for example pollaxe has cutting, crushing and stabby parts) depending on how heavily armored the opponent is and where you aim. Visors on the helmets obstruct your view but give you better chance to survive that slash to the face, helmets without visors protect your head from sides, back and top but leave your face unprotected, half-plate has good protection for your torso but leaves little to no protection to your arms and legs, chainmail protects only good against slashes or some weaker piercing strikes but give you better mobility, the list goes on.
Squad-Leaders get tactical perks to buff yourself and your team-mates for short period of time and tagging ability so you can mark that annoying, bush-dwelling sharpshooter for your comrades for little extra points when they chop off his/her head. Also they work as mobile spawn points, as long as the squad-leader isn't being directly attacked.



Microtransactions give you instant access to some prettier versions of gear and extragavant dyes, but none of them cost more than you could get in couple hours of frantic shield-bashing and eye-gouging. Only minuses I could think of are very small ammount of maps and unpolished spawning system where you sometimes try to spawn on your squad-leader and instead spawn outside map boundaries or in the middle of frantic melee.

Downloaded the demo; Trainingsmode was blocked in the demo, couldnt find a tutorial, couldnt find how to operate the game - just "throw yourself into the blades" (Multiplayer). Since my experience says, nobody wants a teammember who stands still for a minute and then asks: "how do I operate this game?", I deletet the game instantly before I even started one battle. Will never even touch War of Roses and all successors again.
