NEW YORK – October 2, 2012— War of the Roses, a gritty medieval third-person team-based melee combat game, has officially launched on leading digital distribution platforms. The medieval brawler, inspired by the historic 15th century English civil war of the same name, can be purchased for $29.99.

Senior Producer Gordon Van Dyke and guests will be hosting a live stream countdown to the release of War of the Roses today. The broadcast can be viewed starting at 5pm GMT / 9am PDT on the official Paradox Interactive Twitch TV channel at www.twitchtv.com/paradoxinteractive

The king has fallen with no clear successor and two powerful English houses are vying for the coveted crown of England. You step into armor donning the vibrant, albeit tarnished, colors of your liege lord and march alongside your fellow knights into a battle frayed with confusion and the clash of steel on steel. With arrows and bolts grazing past your cheeks, you head deep into the skirmish in an attempt to show your enemies exactly which rose is the most powerful. Sharpen your blades and prepare yourself for War of the Roses, where skill is not an unlock.

Enter the battle for either York or Lancaster by visiting the official War of the Roses site here: www.waroftherosesthegame.com/buy
