TaleWorlds has revealed their plans for Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord singleplayer, detailing just what we can expect to see coming in future updates.
If you're not yet familiar with this game, check out the Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord Early Access Trailer to get a feel for its vibe:
Bannerlord has been out in Steam Early Access since March 30, 2020, and the devs at TaleWorlds have been hard at work behind the scenes. The game has had a bit of a rough start, but improvements are gradually being made as they iron out the rough edges.
Now, TaleWorlds has revealed the direction they'll be taking this medieval role-playing game — and there are some pretty interesting ideas in the mix.
What's Coming to Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord Singleplayer?
The first (and perhaps most important) thing to highlight is the idea of "more." Players are going to be getting more quests, more main storyline content, and more conversations while you're out on the map.
Some work will go into the game's character system. New perks will be added on a per skill basis alongside the balancing of skill progression and effects. You can see the first steps towards the new perks in the latest beta version e.1.4.0.
Perhaps the most interesting new additions, however, are coming to Kingdom & Politics. There will be a sandbox option for players to create their very own kingdom independent on the core storyline, giving you the opportunity to take over Calradia under your own banner. Kingdom decisions for declaring war and making pieces along with some adjustments to Kingdom policies are also on the way.
That's not all that's arriving in future Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord singleplayer updates! A bunch of other bug fixes and improvements (many of which will be graphical fixes) are also on the way; you can read the full forum post for all the details. If you don't yet already own this game, you can buy Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord on Steam for $49.99 or your regional equivalent.
