Get the free trial for War of the Roses now

It’s not a ‘demo,’ it’s a ‘trial.’ Remember that.

Last week we posted the news that, in addition to a new DLC pack, you’d be able to download a free trial for the medieval multiplayer hack-limbs-off-athon War of the Roses. Well that free trial is available on Steam right now and it’s pretty generous in what it offers. Along with Brian Blessed, of course.

If you download the trial version, you’ll be able to compete in matches with players who are playing the trial as well as those who have paid for the full game. There’s four classes available, two modes, and all maps are playable too. Perks and unlocks are locked out of the trial but any in-game currency you earn will be kept if you buy the full game. That’s a really cool feature that should encourage gamers who invest time in the demo to purchase the full game.
