If bloody, intimate medieval combat is your thing, it has been a good week so far. As Chivalry: Medieval Warfare prepares to enter it’s last few months of development, War of the Roses is now available for pre-orders. Here’s a trailer they released to celebrate the fact:

Like most pre-orders, Paradox is offering digital incentives by giving digital House of Lancaster goods to Steam buyers and House of York goods to those who buy from various other retailers- pre-ordering from any does include a version of the soundtrack.

As another incentive to buy from Steam, the distributor is offering a 20% discount on those who own any of the Paradox published Mount and Blade titles (an excellent series that I covered in the Under The Radar feature here). It’s also not a coincidence that this week’s Midweek Madness deal on Steam- going from 8/21-8/23- is huge discounts on the Mount and Blade series, making buying on Steam an even more attractive proposition.

War of the Roses comes to PCs October 2nd, 2012.
