Paradox Interactive Coming To PAX EAST For The First Time

Paradox Interactive will be appearing at PAX East for the first time this year. Joining the gamefest on the show floor will be two of their best offerings, War of the Roses and The Showdown Effect, at Booth #368.

War of the Roses will take players back to England's civil war during the 15th century, the setting for an online multiplayer, team-based title where players can either side with the house of Lancaster or York.

Developed by Arrowhead Game Studios, The Showdown Effect features an action star in a sidescrolling 2.5D beat-'em-up, where he must "duke it out with other Rambos, retired cops, and that one guy who 'lost his identity' by using a variety of weaponry and hundreds of customizable options to creatively kill your friends". Yep, that was a mouthful.
