Paradox Interactive and Fatshark today announced a new game codenamed “Project Postman”, revealing the new title War of the Roses: a new IP that takes players back to the battle-ravaged medieval era of 15th century England.
“This is exactly the kind of game we’ve wanted to do for a long time,” said Martin Wahlund, CEO of Fatshark. “Our team’s very passionate about multiplayer, and we’re using everything we’ve learned from our previous projects to capture the thrill of the pitched medieval battle. It’s amazing to hear Fredrik Wester [CEO of Paradox Interactive] call this a ‘dream game’ for them. They’re the perfect partner for us.”
“War of the Roses will give players face-to-face melee combat they rarely see in today’s third-person and first-person online shooters,” said Gordon Van Dyke, Senior Producer for Paradox Interactive. “We’re looking to steep players in that savagery, and challenge them to confront their opponents head-on in this unique multiplayer game”.
“Fatshark is a really talented team with proven knowledge about this space, and we’re hugely excited about our partnership”, he continued.
