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>>

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!

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.

Norse vs Horse: Mount & Blade Warband

By Jim Rossignol on August 24th, 2009.


Here’s a certainty to go along with death and taxes: there are going to be RPS community battles on Mount & Blade Warband. Oh baby, are we going to get our horse on. If you click below and check out the trailer for GamesCom, you can see why: detailed Medievalism and mounted combat. Not much more information at present, other than to say it’s got an overhauled graphics engine, 64-player fighting, and the ever-lavish single player campaign. And we’re going to play the crap out of it.

I’ll be the dude with the axe.

Mount & Blade: Warband: Multiplayer – Multiplayier!

By Kieron Gillen on June 5th, 2009.

HORSEY!

Emerging from a cloud of dust of E3 is the sound of horse-feet. Hooves. That’s the word, hooves. Sorry – it’s early. As you’ll hopefully be aware, RPS-fave Mount & Blade is getting an expansion. In terms of features they revealed at E3, we’re talking about fancier graphics with redone models and – er – graphic effects I can’t be bothered listing and now 64 player multiplayer (with game modes including team death match and the iggy-pop-inspired Search & Destroy. Worth noting it’s more than just a MP expansion too – the SP will have the ability to become a faction ruler and force people to become your vassals, in a manner akin to how Jim rules RPS. Also, Soldier Morale, adding proper cowards. Run! Run from my horse feet. Er… gameplay trailer beneath the cut.
