Paradox Interactive has several new pieces of news and media to share from War of the Roses, their upcoming medieval squad combat title. Thus far, over 100,000 gamers have added their names to the beta roster, and today, Paradox Interactive will begin to let those players onto the battlefield as the first wave of beta keys are issued. Therefore, be sure to sign-up for the beta.
Furthermore, today Paradox Interactive announced the date that War of the Roses will become available for pre-order. Players will be able to reserve their copies at the finest purveyors of quality games and livestock on August 20th, 2012.
Gordon Van Dyke, Senior Producer for War of the Roses said:
“It’s a real testament to the hard work that Fatshark has put into the game, that over 100,000 people have signed up for the Beta. The level of enthusiasm that people have had to start playing has been incredible, and we can’t wait to hear what they think once they’re actually in the game. Our goal right now is to make sure every last person who signed up gets into the beta, but forging 100,000 swords takes a while. We’ll be letting folks in, following the priority order we’ve set, and I’ll see every last one of you on the battlefield!”
A new behind-the-scenes development video has also been released for War of the Roses, featuring more of the team’s painstaking research into the history surrounding this brutal battle, and can be viewed below.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
