ABOUT MOUNT & BLADE II: BANNERLORD
Bannerlord is the sequel to the acclaimed Mount & Blade: Warband, one of the most successful and influential RPGs of the latest years (and considered by media outlets such as PC Gamer as one of the best PC games ever released). Mount & Blade has been universally praised for its deep gameplay, which combines action, RPG, and strategy in a sandbox world where every player creates its own story in the fictitious continent of Calradia. This follow-up, prequel to Warband, takes place 200 years before the Calradia we know from previous games. The Calradian Empire is on the verge of collapse, and several factions fight to control the remains of the old empire that once dominated the entire continent. In front of them, other factions try to take advantage of the chaotic situation to gain power.
The game will be available for purchase through Steam, Epic Games Store, and TaleWords website.
