Behold: First War Of The Roses Footage


We've been a-rambling about War Of The Roses before now, but this is the first chance for the world at large to see the game in action. The Medieval melee combat game is reportedly the most expensive project ever undertaken by Swedish publisher Paradox, and it's also a big deal for its developer Fatshark, who have built the thing from the ground up. It's looking fairly solid, too.


And ouch. I get the feeling this might just work, although I really, really wanted to see that archer shoot the knight from his horse... And the lack of group melee footage is a bit of a shame - it's a lot of 1v1 stuff in there. I'm also surprised that the animation isn't a little more fluid. Being fussy again, aren't I?
