Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord has no launching date yet, but it still became a part of PC Gamer’s 2019 Fantasy Draft. PC Gamers has a job to pick the best games every year.

They make lists of the best upcoming games or the current best RPGs in the market so fans can foresee their gaming time and gauge how to use their spending power.

Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord is a huge chimera. It’s a fantasy sim set up in the medieval era, and it bounces between strategy, management, and RPG.

The game is set in a war-torn sandbox. A player will start from nothing until he can establish his dynasty, which traipses across the globe to rob everyone or to become a famous tournament champion.

Even if the original game’s a bit janky, it’s ambitious and brilliant, which made the arrival of the sequel a little bit longer because it’s a challenge for the developers to top or equal its predecessor.

Bannerlord was first reported in 2012. TaleWorlds Entertainment mentioned it will not speculate or it won’t mention a release date until it has faith that the game is perfect and players can play it without flaws. The developer mentioned they’d played the game and they’re satisfied, so it means it will be out in the market eventually.

Everyone can do whatever they want in the single-player campaign. Players can easily amass a huge amount of gold if they’ll sell their prisoners or if they’ll fight the bandits.

Some critics have played the game, and they said the game’s directionless is intended and it has numerous paths. The critics added that there’s also a map with myriads of kingdoms, cities, and towns.

There’s not a lot of data about the map yet. However, the map seems dense based on the demos and the trailer. It’s definitely similar from its predecessor. It’s still the same realm even if the game’s milieu is 200 years prior to the events of the first game. Even the font is similar.

Between settlements and camps, the NPCs roam, trade, and they look for individuals to rob. Players should be aware because bandits might chase them or they might decide to prey on other travelers themselves.

Gamers will have a bird’s eye view of the world when they explore Calradia. However, the map will be left behind whenever they partake a battle or whenever they enter a town, and the game will change into a 3rd-person perspective. Players can also wonder in towns to find work, and they can make friends. They can also join the criminal underworld.

Bannerlord will continue to support modding because its community of modders is large. The mod-consumers on the previous game have grown too.

TaleWorlds said its new engine has made things easier for the developers especially with tools such as scene editors. The game will also offer multiple mods.

Even if there’s no release date yet, TaleWorlds said there will be early access, but still, there’s no information about that either.
