About This Game

War of the Roses 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.

The years of 1455-1485 in England are an extraordinary setting filled with conflict, treachery and bloodshed. In the wake of the “death of chivalry” at Agincourt in 1415 and the introduction of gunpowder, warfare changed - the gloves came off, so to speak. The old and the new clashed on the battlefield while personal vendettas motivated the desire for war.

War of The Roses sees players go toe-to-toe with their opponents using authentic and visceral weapons of the time period including broad swords, long bows and battle-axes.

Key Features:


  • Four Ways To Play – Play as a Footman, Gaurdsman, Longbowman, or Footknight allowing you to explore the various combat options that fight your expertise best.
  • Mass Devastation - Up to 64 player competition in both Team Death Match and Conquest modes. Battle online through 11 historically inspired war zones as you experience the conflict between Lancaster & York first hand.
  • Rank Up and Earn Coins Through Battle – gain experience and coins as you battle your way through your prowess on the fields of battle.

War of the Roses and Chivalry were two very hyped games and on release I had to choose between them.

Picking War of the Roses is one of my deepest regrets.

Welcome after about 5pm if your level 30 or higher get ready for you ♥♥♥ to be farmed, as there usally only 1 or 2 dual servers open with a couple try hard/ glitch abusing players who will farm you to no end. If you complain about them farming you there response is to git gud. This game is dead don't bother with it.

balance is horrible. they didnt use any real life logic. case in point, a completly wooden pitch fork takes out a fully armored person in one blow. fully armored as in helmet with a visor. dont get this if your looking for a challenge in realist combat strategy. the look of your character does look wonderful. reminds me of my experience with COD. makes no logical sense but your character looks badass.
ether way, it can be fun. there was some hardcore moments after i understood how to use the right cheesy gear and tactics.

Was great. Has sucked for the past 2+ years. Community was driven away by hackers and lazy developers who ditched this formerly awesome game to make War of the Vikings which tanked hard.

Used to recommend. Not anymore.

Utterly garbage game, people willing to pay real money will always be unstoppable and your own team often attacks you, I think they may even make money off attacking you.

Play Mount And Blade Warband online if you want a decent online sword fighting game.

Don't throw money away on this rubbish.

I've played over 1000 hours of this game. I've seen it from it's conception to it's end.
The community of this game is unlike any other I've ever encountered in an online group. They are vindictive, rude and destructive to the game. Throughout the entire time I played I suffered no end of trolling, mocking and the like. There were people that literally exploited the kicking function to get me off of servers so I could not play the game I paid for.
The issue also lies with the developers whom constantly ignored community begging to get hackers out. Even to this day, after an anti-cheat patch, the game is STILL cracked, people running around with weapons they shouldn't, running fast, swinging faster than is possible. Some people even exploit the bad latency issues to win.

There's a top 1% in this game, they are not skilled players by any stretch. Instead of skill they got together and figured out what the best ways to exploit the games mechanics. From unblockable hits to builds that were simply insanely unfair, they scared away any new players to the game by trying their best to ruin the fun for others. To this day, even now, I get on and someone is taking my Steam ID name so they can spam vote kicks so I can't play.

Stay far, far away from this game. Think of World of Warcraft only cultivated with the worst of the worst (community) possible. The truth is I enjoyed this game but the playerbase was hellbent on seeing it go under. You have honest, fun people who are endlessly frustrated by the trolls, hackers and exploiters.

There is no welcome mat here, just a gigantic letdown.
