Do you like to tell people what to do? More to the point, do you like to tell people what to do while sitting in your pants of a weekend? If so, then maybe the latest Humble Flash Bundle will tickle your fancy. It's a big collection of Paradox games, all pay-what-you-want for the next day and a bit.

Here's what's in the base bundle:

  • War of the Roses: Kingmaker Edition
  • March of the Eagles
  • Darkest Hour
  • Sword of the Stars 2: Enhanced Edition

Pay over the (currently) cheap average of $2.53, and you'll also get:

Also, if you pay $16 or more, you'll get Crusader Kings 2 included as well—although if you just want that alone, it is available cheaper elsewhere.

The bundle will run until 6pm GMT, tomorrow, 3 December.

Greetings community!

We just released a new update for War of the Roses, a little something we'd like to see as a maintenance patch. This serves to increase the stability of the game, make sure our Anti Cheat service continues to work and - most importantly - improve the demo player / new player experience. What we have done is a complete revamp of all our default classes to ensure they are viable, fun and can compete with Kingmaker custom loadouts. These classes were created together with veteran community member Kennedy. We'd love to hear your feedback!

[1.9.2 - Maintenance Patch] - Updated Easy Anti-Cheat system
- Modified base classes to improve beginner experience
- Addressed some crash- and startup issues

Best,
John & the Roses team

Greetings, dear War of the Roses community!

Due to some all-covering server settings changes we are going to restart every official server, starting now (16:30 PM CET) and ending in roughly an hour.

If you see anything strange after the servers have restarted please report it to us.

The fix itself is to York spawning times, since they were not fully synced with Lancaster.

The War of the Roses Team

War of the Vikings


If you ve had a rough week, or it s just been ages since you last slammed an axe into someone, I ve got some good news for you. War of the Vikings, the follow-up to this year s War of the Roses, is hosting a free-to-play weekend for all Steam users. The free weekend, starting today, shows off the Atgeirr update, which adds improved sound and game mechanics, the Conquest game mode and two new maps.



I can already tell that one of the new maps, Cliff, was designed specifically to send me plummeting to my death. This sea-side village features a lot of tall places to get kicked off of, Sparta-style, as the Vikings and Saxons fight for control. The update also brings the clever Battle Chatter feature, which will add character comments on the battle. A nearby archer might cheer loudly due to a headshot and you hear yourself congratulate him, or you see a charging enemy and roar fiercely as you face him head on, a press release from developer Fat Shark reads. To improve immersion even further are making it so enemies always speak their original language, that being Old Norse or Old English, whilst friends speak english so you can easily understand them.

War of the Vikings is still in development, but you can pre-order the game through Steam Early Access and play while the team completes its work. If you re not sold yet, you ve got until December 8 to play for free and make up your mind.
Announcement - Valve
Play War of the Vikings for FREE starting now through Sunday at 1PM Pacific Time!

War of the Vikings delivers the next generation of Paradox’s close quarter combat focused brands that moves the setting to the Viking Age. All of these factors enabled us to create a game experience that has an increased intensity, improved accessibility, and more intuitive combat experiences ensuring you're always presented with interesting choices.

If you already have Steam installed, click here to install or play War of the Vikings. If you don't have Steam, you can download it here.

war of the vikings early access


The Norsey follow-up to Fatshark's War of the Roses sails to Steam Early Access today, following a closed alpha test back in August. Should you decide to take the plunge, you'll be given access to two modes - Arena and Team Deathmatch - along with two "small" maps entitled Gauntlet and Docks.

There are bunch of concessions for owners of War of the Roses: Kingmaker (a free go on War of the Vikings for the next four days, plus 10% off the Early Access price for the next month), that latter boon applying to people who own Mount & Blade: Warband as well. The finished game is expected sometime next year.

For more details, be sure to loot and plunder our coverage of the announcement back in August.
