Holy shit that’s a lot of rats.
Vikings are the next pirates. The Nordic follow-up to medieval melee simulator War of the Roses, Fatshark's War of the Vikings is now available for early access on Steam.
Despite the blockbusters out this week, and other more than worthy time-killers like Retro City Rampage, the game I've spent most time with lately is a multiplayer PC game called War of the Roses.
Most developers creating games set in the present day do some amount of research. They go shoot the guns the game will feature, or go drive the cars, take some pictures of the city streets they'll be recreating, that sort of thing.
Back at PAX East, Stephen Totilo spent some time with War of the Roses by Fatshark, a studio that unapologetically credits Call of Duty and Battlefield as inspirations in this ultra-throwback to combat shoot—uh, stabbers?
Fatshark's upcoming Krater has one of, if not the most expensive collector's edition I've ever seen. There's only one available. And it costs $10,000.
In the video game War of the Roses you're a medieval mauler. You're a person with sword, mace, or bow-and-arrow. You might be on a horse. You might have a lance.
This is the first proper trailer for War of the Roses, a multiplayer combat game from Fatshark and Paradox.
In 2008, GRIN released Bionic Commando Rearmed, a remake of the original 1988 NES version of Capcom's platformer. It was homage, and it was good. Why, exactly, did we need a sequel?
Fatshark, the developers behind the promising (and yet ultimately disappointing) Western shooter Lead & Gold, are back with a new title. And it's got nothing to do with cowboys. Instead, it looks to the great adventurers for inspiration.
Do Team Fortress 2, only set it in the Wild West. Looks simple on paper, but is it really that easy to copy Valve's successful formula for multiplayer shooters?
Traditionally a PC game publisher, Paradox Interactive dons a cowboy hat and a pair of six-guns, moseying onto the console scene with Fatshark's Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West, and we've got pictures to prove it.
