This year’s GDC wasn’t all unhelpfully cryptic teaser trailers – it was also a chance for enthusiastic developers of lesser-known fare to demo their wares first hand. F’rinstance, this awkward but illuminating talk from one of the Turkish chaps behind the splendid, inventive, horse-centric RPG Mount & Blade, showing off exactly what to expect from the forthcoming expansion, Warband. Significantly enhanced graphics and siege-orientated multiplayer, primarily – both of which seem, from this video, to mean an even better game, and one that neatly papers over its more obvious cracks.
WARNING: the guy doing the presentation does have an unusual beard.
Mount & Blade: Warband is due in Q3 of this year. Whatever that really means.
