We now have a full Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord release date. The open-world medieval RPG is charging out of Early Access this October, and it's also coming to current-gen and last-gen consoles. Saddle up your steed and get ready to pillage.
When is the Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord release date?
According to a new trailer posted by developer TaleWorlds Entertainment, the Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord release date is October 25th. That's when the game will graduate from Steam Early Access, and it's also when you'll be able to play it on PlayStation and Xbox consoles. The game has been delayed a couple of times, so it's good to see it finally leaving the stable and galloping forth to make its way to consoles and a full release on PC. You can check out the new trailer that accompanied the release date announcement right here.
What can we expect from Mount and Blade: Bannerlord 2 1.0?
Since Bannerlord launched in Early Access in 2020, the devs have added a host of new features to the game via regular content updates. These features include new maps, keep battles, a photo mode, and new game modes, among lots of other things. Suffice it to say that if you're a console player, or you've been holding off on picking up the PC release until it's fully finished, then you're going to get a much more fully-featured game than the early adopters.
Unfortunately, console players likely won't get to enjoy the wide range of Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord mods out there right now. These include a mod that turns the game into an Age of Empires-style RTS, as well as a Game of Thrones mod, because of course. I'm pretty sure it's the law that any game with a vaguely medieval setting must at some point get a Game of Thrones mod.
You'll be able to pick up Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord when it launches on PC and consoles on October 25th. If you can't wait that long, the game is also currently available via Steam Early Access, where it'll cost you $49.99.
