I really need to play Warband. I own it and War of the Roses but have not had a chance to play them yet.

Bannerlord... a bit of a weird title. Then again, who cares? It's Mount & Blade, so it's gonna be awesome, no doubt.

Hopefully they will use a new engine for the sequel.

It is one of those games that defines what the PC is all about imo.

Amazing. This will be amazing.

That could just be the worst teaser I've ever watched.

Sweet! A very nice surprise.

The only thing new about this is "Bannerlord" subtitle - the game was actually announced a long time ago. I'm excited, partly because Mount and Blade is one of my favorites. War of the Roses sadly doesn't set out to capture M&B's magic (in any way whatsoever) so I believe M&B 2 will be the only way to go for fans of the original.

About time.

Warband was my fav. It looks really dated in places, but its so much fun ...

And still the same half a$$ world map.

#18 Posted by AdrianWerner (27993 posts) -

Very excited. The core of Warband was amazing, it just lacked proper budget. Hopefully this time it won't be a problem. Warband with better SP and War of the Roses-like production values = nerdgasm!

Yup, we actually knew about M&B2 for like a year ago now. When one of the devs mentioned it.

Later on a Turkish documentary actually had some footage of them developing M&B2.

I hope so too. It's an enjoyable game, but at times, it just feels so... clinical and soulless.

Dont worry. Hopefully for you, it will finally have Wii-Mote support >:[.

A good SP vanilla campaign would be nice. Sure, you can add countless SP campaigns, but right out of the box would be nice. A better engine, improved world map with much more stuff to explore, buy (maybe conquer aswell), the Warband vanilla map is pretty damn barren.

That's basically the complaints i had with vanilla.

#23 Posted by parkurtommo (26744 posts) -

Definitely excited considering the new engine and probably a much higher budget, Finally a mount and blade game that isn't visually appalling! :D

Yeah if they can more fully realise their concept now with a budget that would be amazing !

Mount & Blade combat>Skyward Sword combat.

Horrible, horrible treaser trailer. But a great annoucenement, really can't wait till there are more details.

I don't like teasers and live action trailers in general. If you want people to really get excited than it's all about the gameplay

#29 Posted by Rattlesnake_8 (18398 posts) -
Awesome, I love the mount and blade games!
#30 Posted by PCgameruk (1425 posts) -

Im not hyped. As said before they need a new engine. Game if fanstastic but it feels like a last gen game. I thought they would of made enough money off the series by now to make a high budget game.

We shall see.

#31 Posted by freedomfreak (39960 posts) -
Bannerlord? That doesn't sound stupid at all.
#33 Posted by thespywholied (3352 posts) -

Brilliant news. Mount and Blade is the best low budget series i have played in years.

PLEASE focus on SP. I will be annoyed if its based mostly on MP.

it's how the game was designed, there's no shame in admitting.

Glad you like it. That's the name we're sticking with !

Aye aye especially if it's a game like Mount and Blade.

South Park: The Stick of Truth will surely make fun out of a good deal of games. Maybe this one too ? :p

Aye aye especially if it's a game like Mount and Blade.skrat_01

Or Rome 2 TW. I think gamers are far more impressed with the tech and gameplay behind that game, like the second trailer, than dressing up a bunch of actors as romans (to put it bluntly :P)

Can't wait to see some gameplay from M&B2. The teaser at least got me hyped to that amount, hehe
