It’s actually happening. This is not a fever dream. Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord, a game which was announced a full year before the current-gen PS4 and Xbox One consoles were revealed, now has a release date.
We've been waiting eight years since its announcement but Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord is almost upon us at long last. The next name in epic feudal warfare, it promises to be a top-to-bottom simulation of medieval life. Bannerlord is every genre you can think of bundled together and shaping up to be the sort of game you could easily pump thousands of hours into. Before you put on your pauldrons and head to war though, here are the official PC system specs for Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord.
Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord was announced well before the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were even revealed. It’s been a wait of epic proportions, the sort of tale the bards will song about long after we’re gone. But, here we are, seven years later, and Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord is finally about to get its first proper multiplayer beta test.
Few games are quite as open-ended and infinitely replayable as Mount & Blade, so it stands to reason anticipation among the game’s community is approaching fever pitch for its sequel. After a series of expansion packs, Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord is set to arrive seven years after the original, making the jump to a swish new game engine, which means battles look grander and are on a larger scale than e ever before.
