After an excruciatingly long development time for around eight years, Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord will be finally out soon. The first teaser of Mount and Blade was in 2012, and the game seemed that the sequel would never come out. 

Nonetheless, TaleWorlds Entertainment - the developer and publisher of Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord confirmed that they will release it soon in March 2020 for PC (Steam). It is worth to wait, isn't it?

The game is coming out in March 2020

For those who are unfamiliar with the Mount and Blade series, it has a very straightforward but rewarding style of gameplay with a directional attacking & defending system. Thereby, you can only stab or thrust in four directions to attack your opponents. 

The attacks can all be blocked or warded off if your opponent places their weapons in the same spot that another player is attacking. It might be very basic, but it makes duals & fights extremely dramatic in the single-player as well as the multiplayer.

The multiplayer features 200 man battles

Now we will get deeper into the game's single-player and multiplayer.

The single-player is a slightly hardcore role-playing game experience. You will start the game by using a rusty sword & several loaves of bread to do everything you like. However, your core goal is fighting in multiple battles between the various existing factions. From then on, you will become famous and finally, you can build your kingdom.

Meanwhile, the multiplayer is one of the most well-known features of this series. Perhaps no online action game except for Mount & Blade can bring players an experience of massive 100 vs 100 battles. And Bannerlord should only improve those which were lacking in the previous game.

The graphics of Bannerlord is much better

The previous chapter, Mount & Blade: Warband might disappoint you of its horrendous graphics. However, as you know, nothing is perfect. But if you like hardcore role-playing games or battling in 200-player Medieval sieges, give this game a try as you have a chance. And hopefully, the upcoming Mount & Blade II will satisfy all its fans.
