Mount up this October!

For the glory of the realm, we fight. Microsoft and Taleworlds Entertainment have announced a release date for the overwhelmingly acclaimed Medieval combat simulator, Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord. This sequel to the already well received Mount & Blade: Warband is bringing some of the sharpest and most brutal medieval combat this side of Camelot.

The release date announcement was accompanied by a beefy trailer, showcasing a breathtaking Array of visual fidelity, from armies stampeding through the forest to castles being overtaken. Players embark upon the continent of Calradia, conquering lands and territories and asserting dominance upon all who pose a threat.

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is an open-world sandbox that is so open and vast, no two playthroughs are ever truly the same. The focus of the game is combat and exploration.

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord rides out in October!

Creating a medieval simulator like Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is commendable on its own merit. However, researching the subject and applying as much knowledge as possible into the gameplay experience garners even more respect. Every moment feels as if the pages of historical texts and research came to life in a groundbreaking and profound way.

Every clash of steel, every hoof of a horse that stomps the ground, and brick of castle seems to be so keenly made with care that it’s almost irresistible to not be the least bit engaged and want to ty out the game. I am not one for medieval simulators, but every look of the trailer remakes it harder and harder to say no to playing the game.

I’ve personally been on a fantasy kick lately, having finished Kingdom of Amlur: Re-Reckoning on the Nintendo Switch and just started my journey into The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as a female Argonian. Both experiences were first time experiences and have been most memorable. With House of The Dragon now streaming on HBO Max, Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord may be another game to fullfill my desire to play more fantasy and medieval combat games.

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord launches for Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 4/5 on October 25. The game is also available on Steam here.
