Update (Tue 23rd Aug, 2022): The official trailer has now arrived for Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord ahead of its Xbox release this October 25th, along with the news that pre-orders will be available beginning today.
Here's what TaleWorlds Entertainment had to say about the announcement:
"Developed as a multi-platform game since day one, the console version of Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord will have the same gameplay features as the PC version. The game will be available for Pre-Order on Playstation and Xbox Stores today (August 23rd, 4PM UTC) as well as major retailers."
"The currently available PC Early Access, will also move on to full release, along with the console launch at the same date. But do not fret - While this marks an important milestone for the game, it is not the end of the road for Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, which will keep receiving updates in the months to come."
Original story (Tue 21st Jun, 2022): 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.
Are you looking forward to finally going hands on with Mount & Blade II? Let us know below!
Thank god it finally comes to consoles as my laptop cant run. Hve like 100 hrs of warband on steam and 200+ on playstation. Cant wait to play the next one on PS and highly recommend anyone interested in this type of game to try it
Very cool. Love Warband and have been waiting for this to come to xbox. Didn't see it in the article but is it coming to Xbox PC as well or just the console?
Mods and total conversions are such a huge part of the Mount & Blade series I can't imagine playing it without the option to have them. Bethesda implemented mod-launchers in their more recent console games, it would be the bees' knees if TaleWorlds did something similar.
FINALLY!!! Can’t wait! This game is great, an absolute must play!
Yes! Been waiting ages for this. Love the original.
@101Force Weird. Been playing since Warband in 2015. Never once used a mod.
Can't wait! Loved Warband so can't wait to see how this one will play.
