Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord still does not have a release date. But TaleWorlds Entertainment is pulling out all the stops to sustain the interest of players in the Medieval role-playing game.\r\n\r\nIn its latest update, the developer explained how a player\u2019s party and army speed can determine its victory.\r\n\r\nLike its predecessor, Bannerlord has a system that allows players to calculate their speed as they travel across the map.\r\n\r\nBut to do this, several factors need to be considered. TaleWorlds also added some tweaks to the gameplay and introduced greater clarity to ensure a better gaming experience.\r\n\r\nThe developer admitted it didn\u2019t do too well in the transparency department. Simply put, it wasn\u2019t able to explain to players how the party and army speed could affect the game\u2019s outcome.\r\n\r\nFor instance, your party slows down, but cows and everyone else moves faster than you on the map. There should be an explanation for this, according to PC Gamer.\r\n\r\nMount & Blade 2: Bannerlord players will easily know their speed by glancing at the info bar. If they want to get a more detailed description, all they have to do is hover over the bar.\r\n\r\nDoing this will apprise them what factors are affecting their movement\u2019s pace. And if they\u2019re moving too slow, they can check the tooltip to know how they can speed up.\r\n\r\nHorses are not only a means of moving across the map but also play a major role in the game. Although infantrymen may pack your army, a few extra horses can provide an extra boost.\r\n\r\nBecause some of them are domesticated, they are slower compared to their cavalry counterparts.\r\n\r\nThe size of your party also matters and can significantly affect the outcome of the game. For example, facing off against a bigger army has its advantages.\r\n\r\nA larger is army is slower, which gives smaller ones the ability to outrun them and avoid being wiped out. Cargo can also slow down your party. You can address this concern by having more animals and soldiers carry them.\r\n\r\nThose who have played Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord say it has similarities to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.\r\n\r\nHowever, Bannerlord stands out due to some improvements, particularly in its Medieval justice system.\r\n\r\nFor instance, when you commit a crime, you\u2019ll be fined or find yourself in jail. For minor crimes, you will be required to pay up if you get arrested, according to Tech Raptor.\r\n\r\nBut if you don\u2019t face up to your offenses, you will be tagged an outlaw. This means you\u2019ll no longer be able to enter the nation\u2019s territory.\r\n\r\nAnd if you are guilty of heavier crimes, you\u2019ll either be put behind bars or be placed under the executioner\u2019s ax. Playing Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord will definitely remind you of your own mortality.
