Mount & Blade: Bannerlord

Nice. Only 3 or 4 more years away now.

All I want to know is when.

When?

The 31st of Nevruary, 2195. Heck, they should change the name to M&B Bannerlord Forever.

They’re supposed to be demoing the single-player campaign during Gamescom. If it looks as good as the stuff in the trailer, then I have to wonder what’s holding up the release at this point.

That looks sooooo good.

It’s delayed while they convert it to a Battle Royale game.

When I was writing my post I was thinking “There is no way they can mess this game up for me, even if it was simply warband with better graphics and animation”.

That, my friend, would crush my soul.

New from Taleworlds… “M&BR”

It’s been so long that’s what I remember the first game looking like.

In reality, it’s a mystery to me what it’s taking so long, because it looks like indeed a lot like the original game, but with prettier graphics. But you can see the combat is the same, the animations too, the UI, the campaign, the equipment screen, etc
I know there is a number of new features, and they are a small team, but man…

I wonder which will launch first, this game or Star Citizen?

(I don’t really wonder that. Star Citizen is the boondogliest boondoggle of all time and will never hit 1.0.)

One day I’ll be sitting at home, with the full release versions of Starsector and Mount & Blade 2 installed on my PC, wondering which one I’ll play next.

One day.

Well played, sir.

Closed multiplayer beta underway. Plans to transition to open beta after it’s done. Still no firm date.

Finally a date. Too bad its early access.

Are there any singleplayer RPGs with comparable combat? The closest I’ve played are Gothic, Morrowind and The Witcher 2, but they are not at quite the same level as M&B.

As singleplayer RPGs go, Kingdom Come: Deliverance is the most similar in combat, I’d say.
