"Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord will be officially revealed for the first time to the media press at this year’s Gamescom, taking place in Cologne from August 5.

Bannerlord takes place 200 years before the events of Warband, however the game will introduce much improved visuals to the game as well as new features and expanding gameplay in all areas.

Information about TaleWorlds Entertainment’s next entry in the Mount & Blade series has been hard to come by, with not much information being revealed by the developer as of yet, however Gamescom will be the first time that live gameplay of Bannerlord will be shown, as well as additional videos and information being released.

As well as being shown off at Gamescom, TaleWorlds also announced that the Mount & Blade series has also sold over 6 million units to date, making it one of the most popular indie franchises of all time. TaleWorlds first game, Mount & Blade, was released back in 2008, with Warband releasing in 2010. Warband was the game which cemented the series place as one of the most popular sandbox games on PC.

The latest release from TaleWorlds is Viking Conquest, an expansion for Warband. A Reforged Edition of Viking Conquest was also recently announced, giving owners of the DLC a free update containing a range of new features and improvements including multiplayer raiding and dog companions."

Anyone with sense trying to promote Bannerlord would be wise to pretend Viking Conquest never happened.

It does, but not with the stamina mechanic (at least last time I played). Multiplayer was literally deserted 7 days after launch, it was that bad. Maybe it's improved tho...

Spears were very fast and had native turnrate (ofc) and overhead/underarm stabs, very powerful and very high damage. There were no 2h weapons (not exaggerating, there were 0 unless you count banners that do crap damage cos they're there to 'buff' your team).

Still a lot of negativity around the quality it was launched at, dont want to associate the new game with those feelings. I've never seen a game/DLC get fucked that hard on steam in all my life xD review status - 'overwhelmingly negative'

I'm sure it's ok now but you cant deny the amount of flack they got, or how quickly the multiplayer servers completely emptied at release.

I hope they won't make this mistake with Bannerlord, although I am pretty sure they will. Spears are (sorry, I have to go all caps) FUCKED UP! The actual root cause is the ridiculous pierce damage mechanics, but spears literally take it to the next level. I don't have my hopes up. But we will see.

Tbh, I might throw away the game on day one, if I observe that the ridiculous stabs are still there.

I hope Bannerlord is sufficiently different to have a new meta, not just a retextured version of what we already know.

For example, the singleplayer campaign where in native:
50 pure infantry always beat 50 pure archers (without massive hero-character ramboing).
50 pure infantry always beat a mix of 50 infantry and ranged
50 pure cav always beat 50 infantry or 50 archers or any mix of the 2

It'd be tedious starting a campaign where none of this has changed.

Same here. Still I can't help but expect that they will repeat some of their fatal mistakes. Hopefully though, they have learnt from them, listened well to their audience and will successfully upgrade the formula to the next level.

Never let me design a game... i'd just piss people off with really cool looking gear, weapons and customisation 'n' shit, then after 30 mins of character customisation and skill point allocation you'd realise it's 100% a sandbox chess simulator and nobody uses a sword or anything outside of the boardgame.

They must be a little scared to tamper with the mechanic that made warband so popular and successful. If they keep it they same I guess they can guarantee a following rather than risk a new innovation.

Those siege additions tho! And slightly more human movement. Big wins for me

Why change something that works? A small improvement or addition to combat wouldn't hurt, but I'm fine with just other parts of the game being improved like graphics and new features outside combat.

There is a lot to improve in WB without changing the base formula, which is what I was hoping to see in WB2.

Crpg2 would be pretty sweet with the ability to make custom weapons already in the singleplayer game (and those increased armor options). I hope somebody will make it happen.

The weapon crafting with a "balance modifier" instead of purely balanced or unbalanced looks cool. Different speed for thrusting and cutting, nice details. The cities and taverns looks really good, so does the siege equipment. Music's decent too. Body slider, thumbs up.

That board game taking like 1 minute of the trailer, wtf. Voice acting is atrocious, hope it's just placeholders. The fighting seems... average? I don't know, a bit too little to judge from unforunately. Too much board games, too little fighting. :lol:

Without its moddability Warband (and Mount&Blade) would be nothing, so it's definitely not the only reason.

Maybe warband was popular because it had fun singleplayer for those who only wanted sandbox, competitive (and casual) multiplayer for people who wanted that, and insane modding opportunity for people who are into that.

Lots of things about it was good, rare to find a game where a certain % continue to enjoy certain aspects for 100s or 1000s of hours and not necessarily everyone agrees on what bit was the best. Most games are *either* good multiplayer or good singleplayer or just good for modding. I find all aspects of warband incredibly fun.

Also is it just me or does the last vid Guray showed us feature some form of sprint/jog mechanic?

Also the taverns are worthless without Ragnar the Red every 2 seconds.

I think we'll all agree it's the insane replayability of warband which made it so successful, striking similarity with games such as dota and counter-strike. My point being is that if bannerlord want to become a big game, what'll make it huge is most likely the competition.

Was it just me, or did that 2h stab look like a weird hybrid between Senni's stab and the old stab? The thrust was at shoulder-height like the old one but the motion itself had more in common with Senni's. Dunno, only watched the trailer once.

I think we'll all agree it's the insane replayability of warband which made it so successful, striking similarity with games such as dota and counter-strike. My point being is that if bannerlord want to become a big game, what'll make it huge is most likely the competition.

I'd be interested to see what % of gamers out of a general volume want the competitive scene and how many want the sandbox. I'm sure there's some overlap and games like DOTA show that there's much more of a competitive crowd out there than i used to think. In a way Warband was a good route from one to the other, my mates all loved the campaign so i got it for that, then i loved the multiplayer too, then the mods in that order (after about a million hours in campaign and modded campaign). But others have done it in reverse, or missed entire aspects of the game only focusing on one area.

It offers such broad appeal, i havent met many gamers IRL who havent been tempted by at least one thing that warband offers when i describe it whether it's the sandbox, multiplayer, competitive multiplayer or modded gamemodes like the last stand vs bots. Even if they didnt stick with it, i think there's something there for so many different kinds of gamers. I think it's going to be really good if they dont fuck up the launch and release something unplayable like Viking Conquest on day 1, i know that should be a given but who knows these days...

This sums it up, I wouldn't have given any time to the game without the combat mechanics of M&B, being huge moddable or not. In a weird example, the same reason I simply can't stand playing CS (never did, and Quake gave me all the reasons to do it).

I fully agree that combat makes it unique, but it's (singleplayer) mods that made it hugely popular. The top mod on moddb alone has more players than the multiplayer competitive scene will ever have.

Well, there's no equation between combat and competitive multiplayer. Mods, be it single or multiplayer, are so hugly popular because combat is so great in the first place, I think.

The competitive side of warband...? I mean, it's there?

It's disappointing to see a developer ignoring the aspect and being so oblivious to it.

I think so too, mods wouldn't do anything if the base game wasn't good in the first place. However, even good games get old, and that's where mods come in and keep the game alive for a long time thanks to the added variety.

It's disappointing to see a developer ignoring the aspect and being so oblivious to it.

On the contrary, he's saying that the competitive multiplayer part is so good that it deserves a much larger community than the one it has now.

For starters, what modders would have played, enjoyed, and modded the game if they hadn't first loved the base game and seen potential?

I'd wondered how much i'd bother with Bannerlord till now since it's been a long time coming, but now i'm hyped to hell about campaign at least just looking at that siege shit. If multiplayer is awesome we'll give it a go aswell.

I'm looking forward for the game, enjoyed the hell out of Warband (and Mount & Blade), I just don't agree with you that the competitive multiplayer is a hugely important factor for Warband 2 (or regular WB for that matter).

replay system is something I think would be really cool if it was implemented into multiplayer (crosses fingers).

shame still not a whole lot of combat footage and the little that is show looks a bit odd (hopefully not a step back).

Still a lot of negativity around the quality it was launched at, dont want to associate the new game with those feelings. I've never seen a game/DLC get fucked that hard on steam in all my life xD review status - 'overwhelmingly negative'

there have been a few games that have been pulled off of the steam market b/c of how shit they were (http://store.steampowered.com/app/208650/)

i imagine that the Brytenwalda team needed more time before release (i mean you never have enough time in software development)

Anyone else notice the 2h sword stab is on his left? (B roll)
Whereas 2h axes stab from the right; seems odd they separated the animation, but still used a similar stab.
Also swings seem to remain active after they've hit something (might be only for environment collisions, not enough footage). (again b roll)

- Devastating activated combo-attacks
- Passive/activated abilities available in the new 3-branch level up system!

The guy on the right says after : Yes its not even beta.

60 companions is a lot... Let's hope they all won't leave if you can butter them up with 10 leadership skill.

Board Games
Apparently there isn't just a single one. Each culture has a game of its own and there are 6 cultures. The taverns will have the games running based on the culture.

6 different board games... would be nice if they would work online.

Quote
Combat System
The interview comments on the combat system being a bit easier to learn but harder to master than Warband. Armağan continues to say that they added some subtle stuff but didn't want to change it up too much. Gives more importance to legwork and timing and even talks about some attacks being faster if they're carrying the momentum of a previous swing.

Momentum of previous swing affects the next swing, that's going to be interesting. Paired up with hitting multiple foes with 1 strike, you could make some sick combos.

Each of the game's six cultures has their own boardgame, originally designed but inspired by real historical games. These can also be played with ladies and lords, as well as other NPCs in the game for role-playing and diplomatic purposes.

6 BOARDGAMES?!?!?!? They're spoiling us...

I anticipate that through a lack of communication/divide in social groups there will not be a cRPG Bannerlord, there will be 2 or more cRPG Bannerlords made by former members of this community or general enthusiasts!

And they'll struggle for the reputation of 'cRPG 2' against each other, refuse to combine efforts and each provide something that is unique but falls short of cRPG, and the current fanbase of cRPG and new players will be forced to choose or alternate between different 'cRPG 2' type mods which have some features they like but others that are 'not enough like cRPG' or 'too much like cRPG' or ''not enough like XXXXX's version of cRPG2 that i'd be playing instead but it's empty''

Quote
In the quest example we’re shown, the developer meets a man in the pub who has just had his horse stolen. He’d be grateful if you helped him get it back. If you agree, he leads you off to the people responsible elsewhere in town, giving you the opportunity to talk to their leader and compel them to return your new friend’s horse. When they refuse, you fight one of their heavies in sword combat in order to teach them a lesson. It’s an opportunity to teach the player a lesson too, letting them get used to conversation and combat systems in an environment less intimidating than the wilderness.

Suitably impressed, the horseless bar friend joins up to your squad of merry men, which comes in handy not long after when – in the wilderness – we meet more horse bandits. We get a greater glimpse at the combat here, as a dozen or so people on the battlefield manouver around, stabbing and swinging, while the developer moves among them on horseback. Combat is meant to be deeper than previous iterations of the game, taking into account timing and previous attacks, but it’s more about subtle differences than a total overhaul. TaleWorlds say they want it to “still be very accessible and intuitive.”
