War of the Roses preview (Hooked Gamers)

Hooked Gamers writes "Fifteenth century England is a strangely untapped time period for video games. The Wars of the Roses were particularly significant not just due to the variety of weaponry and tactics employed, but also because of the high stakes involved. The two rival royal houses, Lancaster, denoted with a red rose sigil, and York, with its white rose sigil battled it out for the throne of England. Gunpowder had just been invented, meaning the battlefield was a diverse place, with a mixture of guns and bows, knights and cavalry, leather and chainmail, axes and swords. All of this makes for a great video game setting, and Swedish indie developer Fatshark is trying to bring the history of this conflict to life with War of the Roses. Publisher Paradox is on board to get the game out on the PC on October 2nd, 2012." (PC, War of the Roses)
