War of the Roses plans trial version, ‘Kingmaker’ bundle and … Brian Blessed1 Feb 2013
IT HAS COME TO MY ATTENTION THAT BRITISH ACTOR AND PROFESSIONAL LOUD PERSON BRIAN BLESSED WILL SOON BE AVAILABLE AS VOICE-OVER DLC FOR PARADOX’S WAR OF THE ROSES.
Yes, Vultan fans, Brian Blessed will soon be available to narrate your matches. Paradox isn’t saying when, or how much it’ll cost (it will have a cost) but it is certainly a thing that will exist.
If that doesn’t interest you, perhaps news of a trial version of the game will. From 6 February War of the Roses will be free to download and play, with full access to any online battle. However, all unlocks will remain locked, so you’ll have to make do with the base weapons and classes.
Could there really be more War of the Roses information in the same news post? Yes there could. A ‘Kingmaker’ edition that includes “all the top-notch weapons, armor, and perks that have been released since the title’s inception in October 2012″ is due in the next month or two. This edition will also introduce ‘Assault and Assault Castle’ modes to the game (whether all players will have access to these modes isn’t entirely clear.)
Finally, for all the budding Robin Hoods out there, an “outside the law” update will be applied to the game for free in the coming weeks. It’ll add a deep forest map, along with some appropriate armour pieces.
