Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord Finally Hits Early Access In March

It'll be available on Steam, Epic Games Store, and the TaleWorlds website.


After a long wait and a period of silence, we finally know when we'll be able to play Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord. The game, last seen at Gamescom 2018, will enter Early Access on March 31, developer Taleworlds has announced. This Early Access release window was promised back in August 2019, but it's nice to have the date confirmed.

The game will cost $49.99/€49.99/£39.99.

The sequel to Mount & Blade: Warband (which is actually, chronologically, a prequel) was first announced in 2016, so fans of the original (released in 2010) have been waiting a long time. Like its predecessor, this is an action-RPG with some strategy elements, that can be played alone in its campaign mode or online against other players.

It's not yet clear how long the game will be in Early Access for, how complete this version of the game will be, or if any major content will be missing at launch.

March is shaping up to be a huge month for games; other games releasing during the month include Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Nioh 2, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Doom Eternal, and Half-Life: Alyx.
