After nearly a decade of development, TaleWorlds game come to Steam early access and Epic Games
Last week, “Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord” was been given an official release date of March 31. After a development period of nearly a decade, “Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord” will finally be coming out on Steam and the Epic Games Store for PC users.
With a beta that was released in late 2019, the development team for TaleWorlds has been hard at work getting this game out on the market.
The good news is the game has been delayed a few times, which means that TaleWorlds was not happy with their game and decided a little more time was needed in order to make it a worthy successor to the previous titles of “Mount and Blade: Warband” (2010) and the original “Mount and Blade” (2008).
The description of the game on the Steam Store reads “’Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord’ is the eagerly awaited sequel to the acclaimed medieval combat simulator and role-playing game ‘Mount & Blade: Warband.’ Set 200 years before, it expands both the detailed fighting system and the world of Calradia. Bombard mountain fastnesses with siege engines, establish secret criminal empires in the back alleys of cities, or charge into the thick of chaotic battles in your quest for power.”
This all sounds great and seems to imply the most amount of options for conquest compared to the last two entries in the series. The only downside to all of this is the game will be launching into early access and not on the official Steam Store.
“Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord” will cost $50, but as previously mentioned, the game will be launching into early access. This means that portions of the game have not been completed and features may be lacking. These things, however, are not anything to worry too much about.
If TaleWorlds treats the full game anything like they have been treating the online beta, then all should be epic and medieval.
