Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord Shows Off Siege Gameplay

Exciting stuff!

Nope, we still don't know when Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord [official site] will come out. If that's the news you had been hoping for out of E3, hey, maybe you'll still be cheered by this seven-minute new gameplay trailer showing off castle sieges in the sandbox medieval warfare RPG. Catapults! Destruction! Battering rams! Ladders! Murder holes! Fire! People tumbling off ramparts! Good stuff right here:

Gosh, that's exciting isn't it? TaleWorlds warn that it might be a bit rough round the edges as the game's still unfinished, but it's looking pretty good to me.

So when will Bannerlord be finished? Dunno! When our Adam interviewed TaleWorlds in April, they said "We're still not too close to release unfortunately." They did, however, tease a little of how we might first see it:

"We are considering Early Access, or perhaps an open beta of some sort. We definitely want to involve players at some point so they can dig in and help with final touches and game balance."

That's not set in stone either, of course. And apparently stone is vulnerable to having big rocks flung at it by irate Sturgians, so who knows what metaphors we can rely on any more? What would we even do in a world of literal language?

Do check out the rest of our E3 2016 posts, previews, odds, ends, and gubbins.
