Zudem wird es einen neuen Waffensatz geben, mit dem man einen Malteser-Ritter spielen kann. Der Ordensmann wird eine schwere Rüstung aus Mailand tragen, die man nach Wunsch färben kann, eine spezielle Hellebarde sowie eine wertvoll gearbeitete Armbrust. Darüberhinaus soll es zwei neue Karten gebe, die von den historischen Schlachten bei Wakefield und Towton inspiriert sind. Die Inhalte sollen diesen November kommen und werden automatisch hinzugefügt.
This November, War of the Roses will see its first new content drop, which will introduce a wide variety of weapons, including a horn-spanned crossbow for ranged enthusiasts and a Hospitaller pollaxe made famous by the company of knights bearing the same name. Players will also be able to get their gritty hands on the Milanese Knights Hospitaller crafted Heavy Armor, which can be customized with any of 10 different paint options, as well as an assortment of new visors and one new helmet.
Come winter, knights should start preparing for two new challenging game modes and snow-laden maps as the war for the crown of England heads into the harshest months of the year. The first mode being introduced is Pitched Battle, where soldiers for the houses of Lancaster and York will soon learn to value their lives. The upcoming mode is launching into beta very soon, and interested players should keep an eye on the forum http://tinyurl.com/cd3ugvw for more details.
Two new maps are also confirmed, inspired by the battles of Wakefield and Towton. With both of these historic skirmishes taking place in an extremely cold winter from December 1460 to March 1461, it’s only fitting that both maps introduce a new weather mechanic that will set snow and sleet against ally and adversary alike.
