TaleWorlds Entertainment's Mount and Blade series are some of the best medieval role-playing games. Mount and Blade II: Bannerlord is the much-anticipated follow-up to Mount and Blade: Warband. After an eye-watering 10-year wait, will fans be disappointed?
Set 200 years before, it expands both the detailed fighting system and the world of Calradia. Bombard mountain fastnesses with siege engines, establish secret criminal empires in the back alleys of cities, or charge into the thick of chaotic battles in your quest for power. The game is currently available via Steam Early Access and it will stay in this development phase for at least a year.
The gameplay stayed faithful to the great formula that is Mount and Blade: Warband with a few welcome additions. The new character creation is pretty nice and just like before, your background can determine your strengths and weaknesses.
