The first in a series of monthly content updates for Paradox Interactive's medieval brawler War of the Roses arrives this Wednesday.

The update introduces a wealth of new armaments to every knight's arsenal, including the Kingmaker sword, a finely crafted piece of steel brandished by legendary English nobleman Richard Neville, otherwise known as Warwick the Kingmaker.  A new suit of heavy armor will also be available to choose with different paint options to customize one's fearsome look. One new helmet, four new visors, and seven new weapons, including the gothic mace, the halberd, and the horn-spanned crossbow, will also join the fray. 

Players will also be introduced to a new game mode, known as "Pitched Battle," which challenges knights to take greater care with their lives.  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 is crucial to victory, and executing opponents to keep them out of the fight will decide which is the last team standing.

War of the Roses is rated "T for Teen" by the ESRB.
