Mount & Blade: Warband is so very PC Gaming. Whatever that term means, whichever disparate games it tries to bind together, M&B is It. Or That. Or one of Them. You know what I mean. An action-RPG where you also control and equip an army and ride horses and swing swords and it’s sort of an RTS too and mods add everything from Skaven to Glaswegian gangs, oh, that’s definitely a PC Game. It’s a cracking game t’boot.
You can see for yourself, as a free weekend on Steam means all and sundry can play the full game until Sunday, and Warband’s on sale too if you want to keep it afterwards.
If you fancy a bash, click this and Steam should pop up to install Warband. The free weekend will end at 9pm on Sunday.
Meanwhile, a 75% discount on Steam brings Warband down to £3.74 until Monday. Other Mount & Blade-y things are on sale too, should you want the original M&B, gun-adding expandalone With Fire & Sword, or Warband’s Napoleonic Wars DLC. I’ve heard that both are a bit so-so, though. Besides, when you can mod Warband to join a gang of football hooligans, have a punch-up on the pitch, and ride police cars that are basically reskinned horses, who needs official add-ons?
