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.
