ABOUT MOUNT & BLADE II: BANNERLORD
Bannerlord is the sequel to the acclaimed Mount & Blade: Warband, one of the most successful and influential RPGs of our time. 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.
Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord was released on Early Access in March 2020 to great success, and since then has received dozens of content updates, growing to an even bigger and more ambitious game. As the full release version of the game approaches, Bannerlord finally shows its anticipated console version at Gamescom for the first time.
