Mount & Blade 2 Developers On The Launch, Bugs, And Breaking Saves In Bannerlord
There's nothing worse than losing your save.
After the huge release of Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord early access recently, the developers have been working hard to fix some of the issues that have arisen post launch. Since the early access launch, the developers have released three patches, with bug fixes as the main focus of each one.
Players have been reporting losing their save files and encountering various bugs in the game since launch, but the developers are confident that they will be able to work their way through each thread and find a solution for these problems.
Mount & Blade II is a realistic medieval RPG, where players lead a small army of soldiers to complete quests and fight against other small armies, growing renown with each fight until they eventually become a lord or even king. Bannerlord takes place 210 years after the events of Warband, the DLC pack from 2008, with the focus shifting to the historical Migration Period, a period of time that place not long after the fall of the Roman Empire.
While it is only an early access release, Mount & Blade II: Bannerlords has plenty to offer. With Custom Battles and Campaign modes available in single player, there are countless hours of battles for players to experience. The campaign mode is a new addition to the series, with a storyline and key events being woven into the sandbox gameplay, giving players clear goals and objectives to complete while forging their way across the enormous game map.
The multiplayer mode has even more options, with four different game modes to play: Skirmish, Captain, Team Deathmatch, and Seige. According to TeamWorlds, the developers and publishers of the Mount & Blade series, have stated that they will continue to introduce more features, game modes, and additional content to the multiplayer as the early access goes on.
Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is available for 10% in the first two weeks of release, with players who own a previous title in the series getting an extra 10% off on Steam. Once these initial bugs have been fixed, Bannerlord is sure to live up to the Mount & Blade quality of games we all know.
