The developers from Fatshark working on War of the Roses wanted to make sure they got the details of medieval warfare right, and that included accurate depictions of castles. And that meant checking out some actual castles.
In the latest developer diary for the game, War of the Roses devs head to England for a quick course in castles and, more importantly, weaponry and armor. The result are some cool lessons that have been taken back into the game to make it more realistic and authentic. That’ll help make the War of the Roses feel more like the actual War of the Roses, which was one of the bloodier medieval wars.
