Releasing these eight screenshots, TaleWorlds confirmed the development of Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, the next installment in the much beloved Mount & Blade series. Set 200 years before the events of Mount & Blade: Warband, the game delivers on player requests for richer lore by including an optional storyline into the sandbox environment. It features dynamically changing seasons, crafting, a working ingame economy driven by ever-changing supply and demand, and more.
Siege battles now feature a variety of machinery with full player control over how to breach the walls, catering for deep strategic thinking and dramatic assaults.
