TaleWorlds Entertainment have announced today that their acclaimed action RPG will be released on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox One X and Xbox One S on the 25th October. Alongside this the early access PC version will go to full release at the same time.
About the Game
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 developer promises it is not the end of the road for Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, it will keep receiving updates in the months to come.
“These two years have been a long and challenging road”, said Armagan Yavuz, CEO of TaleWorlds Entertainment, in a statement today. “Developing a massive and complex game such as Bannerlord, for several platforms, and in the middle of a pandemic, is no easy task – and I’m incredibly proud of our team for its relentless, brilliant work. Despite the challenges, it’s also been a rewarding path: we’ve found many synergies that we weren’t initially expecting between consoles and PC, synergies that have made the game grow and be better than it would have been in other circumstances. We’re looking forward to putting the game in the hands of our amazing community, which has been supporting us in consoles since Warband”.
The game has been on Steam early release since 30th March 2020 and has received numerous patches to prepare the game for full release (Last 2 patches were in May and the 17th August).
We have not had chance to play this game yet but can see from the PC reviews, it is very good. We loved the mods for the first game and that ability to build your own army and conquer lands. We love that medieval setting and we hope the full release has use swinging our axe in a blaze of glory.
Love the visuals and we can see ourselves sinking hours into the single player sandbox campaign when it hits full release.
