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.

With Fire & Sword – Captain Smith, Pt. 4

By Quintin Smith on June 20th, 2011.

The Knights of the Steel Moustache were some of history's most fictional warriors

My adventures in Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword arrive at their grand finale! Last we saw Captain Smith he was recovering from the indignity of being shanked clean off his horse by some sordid enemy of the state styling himself Barnabas the Squint. Dropping his servitude to the Polish kings like a hot stone, our hero heads East, towards the territory of the Cossacks. It is here that Captain Smith would finally find his place.

With Fire & Sword – Captain Smith, Pt. 3

By Quintin Smith on May 24th, 2011.

That horse couldn't care less, could it?
Last week’s instalment of Captain Smith saw my bookish, ambitious mercenary captain having some actual success. Would it last, or would the game once again cast me into the gutter like a cigarette butt? No prizes for guessing that one.

With Fire & Sword – Captain Smith, Pt. 2

By Quintin Smith on May 18th, 2011.

And Lukasz never complained about an itch on his face again.
Part one of Captain Smith’s adventures in Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword saw me learning the lay of the land. Specifically, a very small patch of land directly underneath my face after discovering the sodding Thresh of musketmen and being shot off my horse. Taken prisoner by the very bandits I sought to eliminate, the fate of Captain Smith is looking bleak…

With Fire & Sword – Captain Smith, Pt. 1

By Quintin Smith on May 13th, 2011.

To boldy shank where no-one has shanked before.
I’ve been meaning to take a stab at free-form medieval RPG series Mount & Blade for years. YEARS. So it thrills me to say that I’m currently having an incredible time with Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword, the latest game in the series which came out last week.

Join me for the adventures of Captain Smith, the worst mercenary leader to ever roam Eastern Europe.

With Fire and Sword Demo, Release

By Jim Rossignol on May 3rd, 2011.

Grandpa's renactment club turned nasty.
Hooray! Mount & Blade: With Fire and Sword has been released, and everyone can get a taste of it via the demo. This era-shifting expandalone for the warmongering ancient combat sandbox – which introduces firearms to horses to create crude tanks – is available to buy, too. I’m playing it right now! Well not right now, but it’s alt-tabbed so I can write this. More on that soon.

Trailer belooooow.

Chat: Mount & Blade: With Fire and Sword

By Jim Rossignol on April 21st, 2011.

Hello, ladies!
If there’s one thing that horses are good for, it’s glue. But before glue had been invented people used them as cars. You might be surprised to learn that they are superior to cars in a number of ways, and the best of those is that they’re perfect for swinging a sword from back of as you attempt to trample your enemies. Videogames have seldom managed to portrayed this positive and healthy activity in a useful way, so we are glad that one game manages to do that: Mount & Blade. This horsey melee game series has been been around for a while now, and is about to ride again with a third title: Mount & Blade: With Fire and Sword. I decided to have a quick chat with TaleWorlds’ producer Mikail Yazbeck about what this new game means, and where it came from.

Mount & Blade: With Fire And Sword Videos

By Quintin Smith on March 2nd, 2011.

Tracheotomies have come a long way since the 17th century.

Mount & Blade expandalone With Fire and Sword hits this summer, adding explosives, a new economic model and heightened political intrigue to the quasi-realistic indie action RPG. Below you’ll find a couple of new trailers entitled Ambience and Action, and the RPS supercomputer informs me that they’re both precisely as awesome as one another, right down to the molecular level. Remarkable!

Mount & Blade Gets Fires & Swords & Guns

By Jim Rossignol on January 21st, 2011.


Hrm, we somehow missed Mount and Blade: With Fire and Sword getting announced yesterday. It’s a new Mount and Blade game! Yes it is. This time it’s set in a “new century of warfare that brings pistols, muskets, grenades, and other advanced weaponry to the battlefield.” There will also be weapon and armour customization, new economic systems, new quest types, and “ferocious” new multiplayer elements. We do not use the word “ferocious” enough. Please make a note to use it more in the future.

Hey look, I even found some footage of this game. (Cheers to Kad for heads up on this one, who also points to this… is this game already out in Eastern Europe or something? What gives?)

Here is the footage>>
