• First Ever US Tournament for War of the Roses Taking Place Today

    Broadcasters, Developers and Producers Battle it Out in Live Stream Event

    NEW YORK – July 20, 2012 – As part of its Six Games and Rock ‘n’ Roll tour, Paradox Interactive today announced that it will host a tournament of champions for upcoming medieval multiplayer game War of the Roses. Pitting game industry veterans against each other in the first ever US tournament for the ambitious and gritty third-person action title, the live stream event will take place on July 27 from 4pm-8pm PST and can be viewed at www.twitchtv.com/paradoxinteractive

    Billed as one of the most brutal tournaments to take place this year, the entire competition will be broadcast online via TwitchTV and will play host to a variety of specially invited guests that will get the chance to play against (read: stab) each other while the whole world is watching.

    Totaling 20 competitors in all, these exclusively invited individuals include broadcasters SeaNanners , TotalBiscuit , Angry Joe , and many more, as well as developers from Paradox Interactive and a team of miscreants from TwitchTV. Commentary will be provided by War of the Roses producer Gordon Van Dyke and gaming veteran Alex “Goldenboy” Mendez .

    Tune in LIVE and see the mayhem unravel by heading to the official Paradox TwitchTV channel at www.twitchtv.com/paradoxinteractive .

    Players who like to get their hands dirty can sign up for the War of the Roses beta at www.waroftherosesgame.com .

    War of the Roses is a gritty third-person multiplayer action game that seeks to put large teams of players into the muddied mail boots of medieval soldiers, allowing them to unlock a wealth of persistent elements as a 1,500lb mounted knight, nimble archer, cunning footmen or anything in between.

    A BIG thank you to our sponsors ALIENWARE and RAZER.
