More On: War of Roses
If you're a War of Roses player, Paradox has a Christmas gift for you a week early. The latest DLC pack is available now, for free, including the wintery Wakefield and Towton maps, and both the Sword and Dagger of the Virgin Mary. Now I haven't been a Catholic for some years now but I don't remember Mary packing blades. All joking aside, Paradox will also have a live webcast demoing the new content at their TwitchTV channel, Thursday December 20th as 7PM GMT/11AM PST. In the meantime, check out this trailer.

"Winter has Arrived" in War of the Roses with New Content Launching on Dec. 19
Trailer showing new Wakefield map released, live stream coming Dec. 20
NEW YORK — December 17, 2012 — The battles between the houses of York and Lancaster show no signs of slowing down, with heroic knights remaining locked in combat as the cold winter months begin. Paradox Interactive has announced that the newest free content update for War of the Roses, entitled “Winter Has Arrived,” will be available Dec. 19 and includes new armor and weaponry, plus two brand new snow-covered maps based on the historic battles of Wakefield and Towton.

The truly pious will also be able to wield the Dagger and Sword of Mary for Christ’s Mass, inspired by medieval depictions of the Virgin Mary, laden with holy symbols. Both weapons will be available Friday, Dec. 21, at a special holiday price. But that mercy will expire on Dec. 26, at which point the prices will rise to the cost of a King's bounty!

Join Paradox Interactive this Thursday, Dec. 20, at 7pm GMT / 11am PST for a special War of the Roses broadcast as they demonstrate both new maps and show off all the new content. To get a front row seat to all the medieval mayhem, tune into the official Paradox Interactive TwitchTV channel at

A new trailer for War of the Roses will help aspiring knights prepare themselves for the long, merciless winter. It may be viewed here:
