About the Game

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.

Medieval combat with a ferociously steep learning curve; 'War of the Roses: Kingmaker' brings a similar game-style to Mount & Blade while vastly improving on what was a grand template already.

Pitching yourself in battle, there's a huge amount of authenticity and splendor you get while charging through a field with around 25 other players around you. With many weapon choices, each one unique and different to handle, there's plenty within the game to enjoy. Strikes feel viscious and you genuinely feel as if it's your mouse alone making the cuts of your enemy run deep.

In comparison to the more arcade-feel of 'Chivalry: Medieval Warfare', War of the Roses is a realistic battle-simulator, however, that being said: it's definitely a game and by all means it's completely awesome.

Great game. Tough, attractive, lively.
Do not look at the video, there is not transferred to the whole point of the game.
Great game for fans of the knights, and especially those who love to play for the archers.
