Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord has always been a legend. The old men whispered that he was still alive, while the young did not care. It has become the material for gaming chair where memes are written, because every time you write a story about Bannerlord, the only comments in terms of "release date, when?"
Well, developer TaleWorlds has finally committed to some kind of release date. Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord will join Steam's early access program in March 2020. Fraser was quite surprised to announce news of this year's closed beta, and I can only express those feelings if I write the following words: You can play Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord in less than a Gregorian calendar year.
The exaggeration around a new Mount & Blade game is probably quite confusing for those who have not enjoyed the unique pleasure of organizing a Warband raid party. The basic idea behind Mount & Blade is that you play as a character, a leader who builds an army, gradually gains notoriety and wealth, and accompanies your comrades at every stage of the fight. It's a heady fantasy, but it's been almost ten years since the release of the last game.
Isn't it great? Bard horses storm the forest! Trebuchets let go of the castle walls! Boobies in a sandstorm in the desert! It's basically like Total War, except that you're actually on the battlefield, giving bread to your soldiers and barking orders on horseback.
Anyway, people (and I mean) have a lot of fun with this game and after many years now we have a calendar that we can put on our calendars. Next spring we drive.
