This Bannerlord mod makes weapons actually hit people

While Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord's combat will never be mega-realistic, a new mod brings a few animation tweaks to make it look less cartoony. Where blades currently pass clean through a target's body, looking like they should be cleft in twain, the Realistic Weapon Collision mod will make strikes get stuck a bit into their bodymeat or glance off their armour. The end result…

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord buffers itself against crashes with two test branches

For weeks, Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord's biggest threat hasn't been some rival army, amassing its forces. No, it's been the nature of the game itself - crashing and crumbling and splintering apart, bringing feudal campaigns to a frustratingly abrupt close. This weekend, developers TaleWorlds decided to strengthen Bannerlord's defences against this existential threat with two new test

Mount & Blade 2 rides into early access on March 31

Seven years after its announcement, Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is almost here. TaleWorlds Entertainment have announced an early access release date of March 31st for their feudal sandbox. Mount & Blade is a strange series, a big open-world and open-ended sandbox combining bits of empire-building strategy, political manoeuvring, roleplaying, and getting your hands dirty on the battlefield yourself fighting alongside your army. It's also…

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord rides into early access in March

One Gamescom tradition is that a lucky few get to play a new Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord preview build, then developers TaleWorlds lock up their medieval warfare sandbox fight-o-RPG for another year with nary a word of when the rest of us might get to play it. Well, Gamescom is here again, we have another appointment to play a preview build there, and... wait!…

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord’s horse archers are mean

We’ve seen much of the swords ‘n’ shields of medieval strat-RPG Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord [official site] over the past year. But you know what we haven’t seen much of? Horse archers.

Warbanding Free: Mount & Blade 2’s Overworld Map

What a Christmas miracle it would be for Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord [official site] to arrive just in time to be a holiday escape! I mean, it would be. It hasn't and it won't. I'm sorta sorry if I got your hopes up? This is why I only receive coal every year (but I'm a practical sort and value useful gifts over trinkets and…

Follow The Flagduke To New Mount & Blade II Videos

I think of Gamescom as the most PC gaming-friendly of the major games conventions, which may largely come from being hosted in Germany, the land of oddball simulators. One of the most PC Gaming of PC Games is Mount & Blade, the open-world sandbox action-strategy-everything-RPG about building armies and ruling lands in medieval kingdoms. If you could sweep its dirt streets yourself and compose for…

Oh Jeez Oh Man: Mount And Blade II Looks Fantastic

In this crazy-busy, senses-overwhelming world of ours, it's sometimes all-too-easy to lose track of the important things in life. For instance, my mother's birthday is coming up and I have obscured my monitor with a forest of "DON'T FORGET TO CALL" post-it notes. (I will still somehow find a way to forget. Just watch me.) Also, it totally slipped my mind that Mount & Blade…

It’s Finally Real! – Mount & Blade II

Good news! Better news! BEST NEWS. TaleWorlds is finally pregnant with another Mount-&-Blade-shaped baby, and your hopes and dreams are the father. This is no With Fire and Sword-style spin-off, either. Or at least, that's what the number two (and in Roman numerals, no less - making it the two-est two of them all) suggests. Unfortunately, I say "suggests" because there's really not much else…
