Feudal Fingerpainting: Mount&Blade 2’s Level Editor

By Alice O'Connor on October 2nd, 2014.

Here's one I made earlier.

Our last post about Mount&Blade II: Bannerlord was one year and four days ago. That won’t do at all. Oh look, here’s a new video from developers TaleWorlds showing off some of the game’s engine and its level editor. That’s the level editor we hoi polloi will get to use too, creating our own huge landscapes and castles for sandbox feudal fun. It supports that pleasant MS Paint-style sweepy-draggy landscaping creation style, among other techniques, so even my crack at making a majestic forest might not end up looking like a foolish child’s paint-splattered macaroni art.

It’s Finally Real! – Mount & Blade II

By Nathan Grayson on September 28th, 2012.


Good news! Better news! BEST NEWS. TaleWorlds is finally pregnant with another Mount-&-Blade-shaped baby, and your hopes and dreams are the father. This is no With Fire and Sword-style spin-off, either. Or at least, that’s what the number two (and in Roman numerals, no less – making it the two-est two of them all) suggests. Unfortunately, I say “suggests” because there’s really not much else to say. All we have right now is a full title – Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord – a brief description, and a trailer that seems determined to abandon its family lineage and become a Powerpoint Presentation.
