Out of GDC this week is the first gameplay trailer for Paradox / Fatshark’s War of the Roses:
Paradox published Mount & Blade. Paradox hired Battlefield series producer Gordon Van Dyke away from DICE. They had a baby, and that baby is War of the Roses.
From what we’ve seen so far of Mount & Blade, it’s a 15th century sandbox multiplayer game a la Battlefield. Its not known yet how large the multiplayer battles will be, but from what’s seen in the gameplay trailer, 64 player could be a hoot.
