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 Mårten 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.
