Paradox Interactive and Fatshark have released the first video in a new series of trailers for War of the Roses, giving a behind-the-scenes look into the “key locales and architecture of medieval England that have helped draw inspiration for the upcoming melee game.” The video was shot documentary-style on location in York, with senior producer Gordon Van Dyke and lead designer MÃ¥rten Stormdal donning armor in order to “ransack the now peaceful city.” It will at least give you a firsthand look at the buildings, landscapes, armor, and lore that inspired the title when it launches later this year.
