Medieval mayhem in Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord’s multiplayer captain mode

The third death was probably the most painful. Not pain in the normal sense - I can’t feel what the little armoured swordsmen of Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord [official site] feel - but the pain of a shameful defeat. I’ve just had a go at TaleWorlds’ upcoming swordfighting-meets-strategy-meets-RPG at Gamescom. Sadly the singleplayer was off limits, but I did get to do some medieval…

Mount & Blade II Gameplay Vid Shows Siege Defence

The last we got to see of Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord [official site] was a castle siege, and what a grand siege it was! Now developers TaleWorlds are showing off their medieval sandbox action-RPG's sieges from the other perspective, with a new six-minute gameplay trailer showing defenders fighting back as siege towers roll in and cannonballs rain. It looks pretty swish and a big…

Mount & Blade II Has Gaming’s Greatest Castles

At the intersection of Total War, Crusader Kings and the Elder Scrolls, there is Mount and Blade II: Bannerlord [official site]. Incorporating siege warfare, with hundreds of characters on-screen at a time, as well as diplomacy, roleplaying and strategic simulation, it’s a living world in which the player can act on the periphery or work their way into a central role. At E3, I saw…

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord Shows Off Siege Gameplay

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…

A Living World: Mount & Blade II – Bannerlord Interview

Mount & Blade: Warband is one of my favourite games but I haven't played it for a long time. In part, that's because I've been waiting for the sequel, Bannerlord [official site], since it was announced four years ago. After over half a decade of development, details about the game have started to emerge and I spoke to Armagan Yavuz, CEO and Founder of developers…

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…

Mount & Blade: Warband Is Free On Steam This Weekend

For the rest of this weekend Mount & Blade: Warband [official site] is free on Steam, finally bringing an answer to the question on everyone's lips: "What is free this weekend is it Mount & Blade?" It is! Along with all its expansions - Mount & Blade: Napoleonic Wars and Viking Conquest Reforged Edition are also both free. Imagine me bellowing this information to you like…

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…

Mount & Blade: Warband’s Viking Conquest Relaunched

When Mount & Blade: Warband's [official site] pillaging add-on Viking Conquest launched in December, it was low on content and high on bugs. Developers Brytenwalda (named after the famous Warband Viking mod they made first) have been fixing it up since then, and today it's deemed done enough for a relaunch. A big update has brought great gobs of new content, along with a new…

Mount & Blade Viking DLC Isn’t Quite In Ship Shape

Roughly a week ago, the lads behind the Brytenwalda mod released the Viking Conquest DLC for Mount & Blade Warband. Replete with hundreds of cities to burn down and hundreds more people to bother, Viking Conquest promised a Dark Age Britain that is supposed to contain authentic scenes, scheming companions, bickering religious people, and... stuff.

Mount & Blade’s Viking DLC Looks Brill, Rubbo, Brill Again

The Mount & Blade games offer more freedom than your average RPG, allowing players to live all kinds of different lives within their sprawling open worlds. The price for that freedom, and those densely populated siege battles, is that the games are more clumsy and basic in terms of animation, physics and model detail. While watching this impressive trailer for Viking Conquest, a new expansion…

Magnus & Blade: Warband Viking DLC Announced

Mount & Blade II is looking awfully fancy, but don't expect to play it any time soon. If you want more armies and more lands to conquer now, now now now, now now now now now now now, stop stamping your feet and pouting as more are coming "soon". While creators TaleWorlds are focused on the sequel, they've drafted another mod team to create another…

Feudal Fingerpainting: Mount&Blade 2’s Level Editor

Our last post about Mount&Blade II: Bannerlord was one year and four days ago. That won't do at all. Oh look, here's a new video from developers TaleWorlds showing off some of the game's engine and its level editor. That's the level editor we hoi polloi will get to use too, creating our own huge landscapes and castles for sandbox feudal fun. It supports that…

Mount & Blade: Warband Saddles Up Steam Free Weekend

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…

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…

Modness: High School Of The Dead Mount & Blade Mod

The mod news ticker is all tick-tick-tick-tack-tack-tack-i-will-kill-you-in-your-sleep. I usually don't pay it that much attention, because it's not plugged in and doesn't actually exist, but now it's clacking away and demanding that we should pay more attention to Mount & Blade's mod scene. While I don't imagine the High School Of The Dead mod it prints out is in anyway representative of the scene's usual…

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…

Parley Of The Land: Caribbean! Interview

Caribbean! is Mount and Blade with pirates, or at least that's what I'd be telling everyone if I was making it. To learn more about what the game will actually include, how naval combat will be implemented and what kind of rum cocktails should be consumed while playing, I buried a list of questions in a treasure chest and gave a map marked with the…

Excitable Archipelagos: Caribbean!

Games about pirates sometimes feel the need to exclaim their titles, as if rushing into a room and excitedly waving their arms, jumping up and down, screaming in your face. 'Pirates', they yell, spittle flecking your bewildered visage, 'piiiiirates'! Or, in this case, they're bellowing 'Caribbean', which makes it really hard for me to work out which vowel to elongate. I guess it would be…

You’ll Be Blown Apart: Mount & Blade – Napoleonic Wars

Edit: added details on the Mount and Musket mod! Napoleon was most likely of average height rather than being the tiniest man in the world and I'm sure that's been taken into consideration during the making of this expansion for Mount and Blade: Warband. Weapons, uniforms and even military musicians playing authentic songs of the period are all in place, as the hooves and hacking…
