This is a pretty smart move by everyone involved; Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord has come to GeForce Now, Nvidia’s streaming competitor to Google Stadia that has had a rough couple of months since its release from Beta. GeForce Now released from Beta, and developers began pulling their games from the library, resulting in the once vibrant library consisting of surprisingly little, despite the aspect that users must legally own a copy of the game before streaming it using GeForce Now.

There’s a bit of a headache when it comes to explaining the frankly exhausting legal battle that is taking place right now over the fine print but suffices to say that as it stands now, Nvidia has complied with every request from various developers to pull their titles off of the streaming service.

This implies that the developers may have a legal leg to stand on in regards to their titles existing on the service, no matter the ownership.

The service still stands today, however, and it brings a simple concept that many should be excited to, at the very least, entertain. The idea is that you can stream games you already own from Nvidia for a low monthly fee; the streaming will allow you to take advantage of Nvidia’s monstrous hardware to run games at their peak quality, assuming that your internet speeds can keep up. It’s an interesting idea that is currently struggling in legal limbo, but they’re down, not out.

Yesterday Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord came to GeForce Now, and with it comes the ability to stream the occasionally demanding title through Nvidia’s service. This means that if your PC has been struggling to run massive 1,000 versus 1,000 battles, you can safely take advantage of GeForce Now to liven your experience a bit without sacrificing graphical fidelity or the ever-important frames per second.

Take note before you begin jumping for joy; this increases the hardware specifications that you’re working with monumentally; this doesn’t fix where Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord currently sits as a title in the throes of the Early Access program. Don’t get entirely disappointed to find out that the problem wasn’t your system, but the game itself. Odd behavior such as the AI Snowball Mechanic, where one faction owns the world within a year, will not be fixed by this.

If you know that your system specs are a bit on the low side, however, you can safely employ GeForce Now to bring your specs a bit more up to snuff for the demanding title, and participate in gloriously massive battles that are currently all of the rage in the gaming industry.
