As developer TaleWorlds Entertainment announced today, the early access release of Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord is surprisingly one day ahead. This means that the medieval role-playing game, which is eagerly awaited by fans, will appear on March 30th. In addition, the manufacturer advertises a discount of ten percent during the first two weeks; anyone who already owns a Mount & Blade title receives a further ten percent discount.
In exceptional cases, gamers should be happy to postpone a game: The early access release of Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord has been moved one day forward, as the developers have just announced. TaleWorlds Entertainment reveals more about this in its blog update.
Bannerlord is the successor to the action RPG Mount & Blade: Warband, which was released in 2008 and, thanks to its playful depth and the numerous possibilities for character development, was able to unite a loyal and still active following. Since the announcement of the second part eight years ago, fans have been waiting for the medieval sandbox to continue. Now there is good news: the game will be moved forward one day. The developers had imagined the release date to be very different, but because of the "great commitment of the entire team", the Turkish studio was able to keep the set schedule even in times of home office work.
From March 30th at 11 a.m. German time everyone can get an idea of Bannerlord. TaleWorlds also advises potential buyers before buying in the new blog post on their website to familiarize them with the features of the early access version. There the developers explain what the players can already expect at the start: In addition to a custom battle mode, the single-player mode also offers a campaign that is intended to enable a structured introduction to the series-typical free sandbox gameplay. The multiplayer mode, on the other hand, like the beta, offers the four different game modes Skirmish, Captain, Team Deathmatch and Siege.
But Bannerlord is still not finished, as TaleWorlds emphasizes: bugs and glitches can occur, there are certainly still balancing problems and some features are still missing or will only be activated later. Those who are not deterred by this will be rewarded with a discount campaign at the start: in the first two weeks, the price of the game is reduced by 10 percent, owners of a previous Mount & Blade game receive an additional 10 percent discount. The regular price of Bannerlord is 49.99 euros.
