Product Description

Mount & Blade: Warband is the eagerly anticipated sequel for the game that brought medieval battlefields to life with its realistic mounted combat and detailed fighting system.

From the Manufacturer

Mount & Blade: Warband is the eagerly anticipated standalone expansion to the original PC role-playing game (RPG), Mount & Blade. Revolving around true-to-life medieval combat, action in Warband utilizes realistic mounted combat and era specific weapons and armor, not magic. It also features a detailed fighting system, user generated content and mods, the ability to command units in single player and multiplayer, up to 64-player support online and multiple online multiplayer modes.

Story
In a land torn asunder by incessant warfare, it is time to assemble your own band of hardened warriors and enter the fray. In Mount & Blade: Warband, you lead your men into battle, expand your realm within the land of Calradia. Calradia is a land at war, a land offering great riches and even greater dangers to the adventurers and mercenaries that flock to shed their blood on its soil. With unerring courage and a strong sword, a warrior can make a name as for himself here and more. Raise a band of hardened soldiers, become the lord of several towns and castles, and perhaps one day you may wield the power to depose kings and perhaps take their thrones for yourself.

Gameplay
Mount & Blade: Warband is an action RPG that utilizes medieval weapons, units, combat techniques—especially cavalry—and strategy exclusively. It does not feature magic. It is a standalone expansion of the original game's universe and play mechanics, meaning that the original Mount & Blade game is not necessary for play. In single player mode players create a character, align themselves with one of the five fictional, yet historically realistic, factions existing in the gameworld and set off to carve out a realm for themselves is the kingdom of Calradia. Along the way they will meet units of other factions on the field of battle and with continued success against them gain experience and level up their character, and units. Along with being able to control their character, players are able to command and control their units in a real-time strategy (RTS) like capacity. Unlike the original game, in Warband players are afforded more diplomatic tools and strategies—such as political marriages—which can ultimately allow them to move beyond simply overthrowing a monarch, instead allowing them to take the throne themselves and even install vassals.

Multiplayer Options
Again, setting itself apart from the original single player game, Mount & Blade: Warband allows for a wide variety of online multiplayer scenarios. These range from near massive multiplayer online conflicts that support up to 64 players, to more organized smaller skirmishes. Modes available online include: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, Conquest, Battle, and Siege. Within select online multiplayer modes units can be commanded in the RTS fashion available in single player. In this players take control of a set number of bot units in all out competition against all other players, or gather their controlled units together within a single faction splitting battlefield responsibilities in their fight against others. In this, Mount & Blade: Warband allows players to unleash both their individual character's skill at arms, as well as their overall ability to strategize on the battlefield in live play.

Key Game Features

  • A standalone expansion game set in the Mount & Blade universe that does not require the original game in the series.
  • Engrossing RPG play in single player mode that enables players to fight their way, by themselves or with AI companions, through medieval battle fields and environments to become king by their own hand.
  • The ability both in single player and select multiplayer modes to command forces in RTS like combat.
  • Large-scale multiplayer battles with up to 64 players. Multiplayer modes include Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, Conquest, Battle, and Siege.
  • State-of-the-art rendering technologies combine with a more informative interface, allowing new and advanced players alike to enjoy an unprecedented level of immersion.
  • New diplomatic abilities like the ability to marry a lady of the realm for romance or cold political gain. Try to win a lady’s heart through poetry or bravery.
  • Groundbreaking mounted combat and realistic medieval specific RPG play.
  • A mod friendly gameplay environment where players can introduce all manner of original content that allows for the altering of character appearance, advanced customization, differing rule/game types and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hands down, Best Game Ever for me so far! January 15, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Free Demo|Verified Purchase
So I got a bang up ToshLaptop, 6GB/1GB dedicated Sys/Video(NVid) RAM, Awesome System! Windows 7 was great at first, then I increased game graphics and after instability I came back down to usable optimal greatness! Game goes on so long and is so good that playing for so long, sometimes I start losing it and have to stop. I have played non-stop for 48 hours at a time now about 5 times, I quit that though. I have almost finished taking over entire country for 1st time, only a few Nords left to tackle. Gotta keep your vassels (Lords) happy or they will defect on you, no more than -95 rating is recommended or account them corrupt and lose them, all the more for the rest, but you do need them to help you for group effort to overcome the other factions. I have played several video games and this is hands down the best, esp. if I have had sleep and in good mood. I first did tasks to help the big cities, found a cause to fight for a leige that was banished. She disgusted me after giving my 1st Castle Storming to another so I then became a Leader myself and took over her Swadia. I am a guy but play as a woman because I thought she would look great, not the case really and now it is harder but challenging as a woman so next game will be as a man and I can marry .... look out ladies! *S* I have yet to find out if I can create a peaceful nation yet? I hope so, I like to fight but would like peace for the villagers, they are always getting the rough end of things and I feel sorry for them, they help me lots because I have always been kind to them. The big cities too, they each allowed me to buy a business because I helped them and engineered their trust and got really rich for that. You will need money!!! Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars a fun and enjoyable indie game June 21, 2010
By Russell
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Free Demo
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is an awesome addition to the collection of anyone who enjoys classics like medieval 2 total war or oblivion. not sure about the problems the other reviewers had about the game. I have the full game on windows 7 64 bit, and it works absolutely fine (better than fine actually). You wont find the top notch graphics here, or the best role-playing experience probably, but you will find an extremely addictive open world style medieval experience. The combat I personally prefer to any other first person medieval game Ive ever played, and the horse to horse combat is what oblivion should have been. If you have a desire to work your way from a nobody to the king of a faction by conquest and diplomacy, buy this game. Another side note, the game is incredibly easy to mod, and has a vibrant community and fan base.

4.0 out of 5 stars install problems easy fix November 26, 2010
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Free Demo|Verified Purchase
This game wouldn't install on my Windows 7 x64 at first either. So I looked the specific error code up online (this will usually solve 95% of problems). In my case it was an NSIS error and their website listed a simple work around that solved the issue. Took less than two minutes.

I'm still learning this game but so far the graphics are great and I'm running a relatively low end laptop (Turion II P540, 4 gigs RAM, ATI Radeon HD4250). If I run into problems I'll come back and update this review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game that just is not well known August 26, 2010
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Free Demo
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Myself and all of my friends have spent endless hours playing this open sandbox! The mounted combat is very well done and exciting! Raise an army, pillage to pay and feed them, seige a castle. Now you own a castle!! Take over cities and buy buildings to bring in constant income! Trading, politics, war and even romantic ties all while leveling up your own character and picking his traits to improve in!

This game has it all, and riding at full speed to make an archer kobob with your lance never gets old!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not as good as original September 1, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Free Demo|Verified Purchase
I own the original Mount & Blade and tried this Warband edition. This one is OK- just a bit more of the same. The graphics are a bit better and fighting from a horse is MUCH more difficult in this version. I like that they added a life bar for your horse (there wasn't one in the original), added some more interactions with characters in the game, and added another kingdom to the game. What I don't like is that once you lose a round in a tournament, you're out- in the original, as long as you knocked a few other people out of a tournament, you would stay a part of the tournament. I also don't like fighting from a horse being more difficult because it's already a challenge. All in all, I'll stick with the original Mount & Blade.
They also added the ability to find a wife, but I didn't have the patience to develop the game to that point.
As far as other people having problems with loading the game on Windows 7, I think that's User error, not the game. It loaded the first time on my Windows 7 laptop with no problems. Also, the game DOES say that it's a demo version. I think that review is a ID 10 T error.

5.0 out of 5 stars Made me buy the full game December 6, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Free Demo|Verified Purchase
I really like this game. It's addicting with it's mix of first-person action and nation building strategy.
I haven't beat the game yet, but I'm having lots of fun with it. This is one game that I can see playing over and over - which is one of the advantages to an "open world" game that doesn't have a strict storyline.
