New Releases for This Week: War of the Roses, C&C Ultimate, Anno 2070 DLC, Dogfights and Rabbits!
Thursday, October 04, 2012
Our biggest release this week is War of the Roses, which is just plain awesome. Command & Conquer Ultimate Collection arrives to jeopardize your free time from now until eternity. Anno 2070's newest expansion sends you to bathyspheric depths, Hell Yeah! makes us consider if our reactions are still fast enough and Dogfight 1942 indulges the aeronautics romantic in all of us before blowing it to smithereens with machine guns. It's been a good week.
War of the Roses is a team based third person action game set in 15th century England. Two rival branches of the Royal House of Plantagenet - the house of Lancaster (the reds) and the house of York (the whites) – fight over the throne, and the player is thrown into the fray.
The years of 1455-1485 in England is an extraordinary setting filled with conflict, treachery and bloodshed. In the wake of the “death of chivalry” at Agincourt in 1415 and the introduction of gunpowder, warfare changed; the gloves came off, so to speak. The old and the new clashed on the battlefield while personal vendettas persistently motivated the desire for war.
War of The Roses sees players go toe-to-toe with their opponents using authentic and visceral weapons of the time period including broad swords, long bows and battle-axes.
Also Available: The House of York Deluxe Edition: Includes House of York DLC:
- Boar Charge
- Plate Cuirass
