Paradox Interactive today announced that the first in a series of content updates for War of the Roses will be released on Monday, which will include new weapons, a new suit of heavy armor, a new helmet, four new visors, and a new game mode called Pitched Battle where death is final.
“Pitched Battle mode will begin an Open Beta when the update arrives, and all War of the Rosesplayers are welcome to join. Simply find a game in the server browser that is listed as being in Pitched Battle mode, and join the game normally. In Pitched Battle, each knight has only one life to risk on the battlefield per round; when a combatant perishes, he cannot return to the fight until the next match. Bandaging one’s wounds and reviving teammates will be crucial to victory, and executing opponents to keep them out of the fight will decide which is the last team standing.
Join Paradox Interactive this Wednesday, Nov. 21 at 6pm GMT / 10am PST for a special War of the Roses broadcast as they demonstrate Pitched Battle and show off all the new content.
