Paradox Interactive has unveiled a new title at GamesCom 2011, one which has previously been known only by the codename of Project Postman.

Dubbed War of the Roses, the game is a multiplayer-focused third person melee game that was announced by developer Fatshark's Gordon van Dyke.

Speaking after the announcement, Gordon said Fatshark put a lot of emphasis on balancing the melee combat, constantly iterating on a playspace that consisted of a barren landscape and just two fighters until the game felt right.

The full game will focus mainly on massive-scale multiplayer however, with Fatshark saying the team is still experimenting with how high it can push the player count.

Fatshark's previous games include cowboy shooter Lead and Gold.
