Pitched Battle: Mount & Blade Glasgow

By Alec Meer on July 15th, 2011.

Towerblock defence

I’m not sure how we managed to miss this. I’m also not entirely sure that we mightn’t have been better off continuing to miss this. Gangs of Glasgow is what happens if medieval warfare sim Mount & Blade was transposed to modern Glasgow, Scotland – or at least an exaggerated version of it where the extreme football hooliganism, rioting and assorted other urban violence is worse than it already is/was. On the one hand, bringing so much – from police cars to football stadiums – into a game about dudes with swords on horses is an amazing technical achievement. On the other… well, I don’t know about you, but I’m making a face that tries to convey something I couldn’t begin to describe accurately.

Mod News: All the Questions

By Lewis Denby on May 4th, 2011.


More sites should interview mod-makers, I feel. If one of this week’s picks is anything to go by, they can have some interesting things to say. Modding might not usually be quite as huge a process as making a full-on indie game, but as a modder you face your own unique problems, ones we don’t always get to hear about. Maybe we should take note of that at RPS. Either way, read on for this week’s roundup.

My! My!: Waterloo In Mount & Blade

By Kieron Gillen on September 29th, 2010.

These are redcoats, so called due to the fact they all share the surname 'redcoat'.

I woke up to Fredrik Wester‘s twitter about the Waterloo event for Mount & Blade. Which is actually based around a load of people playing Mount & Blade: Warband with the Mount & Musket mod, which sounds like the sort of thing we should encourage. Also, linking to the last post, it strikes me that the most RPS mod in the world would be someone modding Zoats into Mount & Blade. We have thrown down the gauntlet. Do not fail us, Internet.

The Forsooth Saga: Part The Fourth

By James Carey on June 2nd, 2010.


Lookit! Despite RPS selling out buying in, things Carry On As Before. Like our Mount & Blade: Warband warband, complete with our own server, voice comms and everything! It was the second of our ‘proper’ Training Knights last night and once again our 64 player server was impressively full. EG may have taken our ads responsibilities, but they’ll never take our freeee-dooom!

Once again a huge thanks to everyone who showed up. It’s one thing to get a bunch of chaps to show up to an event, another to get them to come back again. Ta awfully. Report below.

The Forsooth Saga: Part The Third

By James Carey on May 28th, 2010.


You may already be aware that we’ve started running an RPS Warband, er warband. After a successful induction earlier in the week, Thursday evening saw the first of what I hope will set the trend for our Training Knights, the turnout was formidable, the bloodshed biblical, the organisational chaos… inevitable. Full details after the jump.

Warband: The Forsooth Saga

By James Carey on May 19th, 2010.


Gird up your loins noble squires, I’m issuing a call to arms! The multiplayer regions of horse ‘n’ biff game Mount & Blade: Warband are just begging for a band of RPS’ merriest men (and women) to take to the field and win the favour of comely maidens (and… mendens?) Yes, that’s right, we’re looking to set up an RPS Warband warband, and we need your help. More details below.

Band Of Gold: Mount & Blade: Warband Trial

By Kieron Gillen on April 2nd, 2010.

Too late for a Warband Of Gold to tie into its finalization for duplications thing, alas. Still! A fine record about impotence, sez I.

We mentioned it was released earlier this week, but Mount & Blade: Warband now has a trial version (Or here). It’s basically the full game, which you can advance your mounted, bladed one up to level 7. After that, you’ll need to pay to unlock the full version. Honestly, if you’ve never played Mount & Blade, this is an ideal chance to start with its Horsey-Horsey Elite-meets-Rohan-isms, and a fine thing to spend your Easter weekend on which doesn’t involve eating your bodyweight of chocolate Jesus. Trial here and launch trailer follows…

Mounting Up: Mount & Blade: Warband Out

By Kieron Gillen on March 30th, 2010.

Where the fuck are our horses?

Just a quick post about this, I think. Previous MUCH CELEBRATED RPS GAME Mount & Blade’s expandalone was released today. Mount & Blade: Warband’s primary attraction is its focusing on multiplayer, allowing 64 players to bash the flax of out of one another, but there’s much more which is worth of comment. Graphical upgrade is promising, but additions to let you rule a faction and force people to become your vassals is pretty neat. But best is doing what I like to call “the Quinns option”, where you can hitch up with a lady by romancing her with poetry. Sexy poetry! Or you can be a right bastard and do it for political gain. Anyway, launch trailer follows and you can buy from places on the electric internet. Time for a yelp, I think: yay!

Brainwaves From Beta: M&B Warband

By Phill Cameron on September 14th, 2009.


Mount & Blade is going multiplayer and the beta is in progress as we type. We’ve taken a look at the very specific ramifications for that knight being another actual living person in the unforgiving horse and sword game we love so much. Will you be joining the Warband? Let’s find out.
