War of the Roses to get “Pitched Battle” update this week

War of the Roses

Paradox Interactive has announced that the first update in a series of monthly content updates for medieval brawler War of the Roses will be available this Wednesday, November 21st. New content will include several new weapons and visors, including the Kingmaker sword crafted by none other than the legendary blacksmith Warwick the Kingmaker. The update will also includes a new helmet and set of heavy armor.

The main focus of the update is the new game mode called Pitched Battle, in which a knight is given just one life per round, therefore making death final. Bandaging wounds and reviving teammates will be crucial to surviving, and this new mode will challenge your strategies in battle. Pitched Battle will begin in Open Beta upon arrival of the update, and Paradox wants all players to join in on the action. Simply search for a game server with the Pitched Battle mode listed and join.

Tune into the official Paradox Interactive TwitchTV channel this Wednesday at 6pm GMT / 10am PST for a special War of the Roses broadcast as Paradox demonstrates the Pitched Battle game mode and shows off all the new weaponry and armor content.
