While it’s Gamescom week you can be sure the news will be flying, but here, in a quieter moment, TaleWorlds Entertainment have blessed us with an update on the console release of Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, with the title set to arrive on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One on the 25th of September, 2022. It will also leave Early Access on PC on the same date.
Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is the sequel to the beloved Mount & Blade: Warband, and takes the first-person melee action to the next level, introducing a host of new improvements and an all-new way to forge your legend on the fictitious continent of Calradia. It was originally released into Early Access in March 2020, and the team has been working hard to add fan-favourite features on its way to its full launch.
Aran loved the console release of Mount & Blade: Warband, awarding it a hallowed 9/10 and saying, “Mount & Blade: Warband is a tough game, but at the same time you’ll lose hours to it just through trying to rise through the ranks in Calradia. At the beginning so many lords will look down on you that you want to prove them wrong. It is a game where you will face multiple setbacks, but with each a lesson is learnt. The tasks may seem menial at first, but when you get in your first proper big battle with all the chaos of swords clashing, archers firing arrows, and cavalry charging the game just comes together. Mount & Blade: Warband is one of the hardest games I’ve played and that just makes it so very satisfying when you succeed.”
