Strategy RPG Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord arrived on PC in early access a few years ago now, and in the time since, has garnered a handsome amount of positive reviews on Steam. Finally, after more than two years in its preview program, the sequel to Mount & Blade - Warband is coming to Xbox on October 25th.

Bannerlord is based in medieval times, as you set out on your quest for power, ultimately. The strategy RPG features huge combat scenarios across wide open battlefields, with castle sieges also a huge part of the experience. Here's a bit more on Mount & Blade 2, directly from the developer:

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is the eagerly awaited sequel to the acclaimed medieval combat simulator and role-playing game Mount & Blade: Warband. Set 200 years before, it expands both the detailed fighting system and the world of Calradia. Bombard mountain fastnesses with siege engines, establish secret criminal empires in the back alleys of cities, or charge into the thick of chaotic battles in your quest for power.

Bannlerlord's Xbox arrival coming more than two years after the PC release shouldn't be too much of a surprise. The previous game, Warband, took six years to head to consoles after its initial PC debut way back in 2010.
