TaleWorlds announce that Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is coming to Steam Early Access
TaleWorlds Entertainment announced today that Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, the anticipated sequel of the critically acclaimed Mount & Blade: Warband, will be released on Steam Early Access during March 2020.
Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord will be released in early access, following in the steps of the original Mount & Blade, a game which helped to pioneer the concept of early access titles before growing to become one of the most beloved franchises in its genre. Since Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord offers a vast, unique, and dynamic sandbox experience, it is only possible to test its limits by making it available to players. Also, Bannerlord’s massive world requires time to create, giving each city its own identity and breathing life into every character.
From day one, players will enjoy the true, unique experience of Mount & Blade - a massive, deep sandbox with thrilling, skill-based combat and strategic management which will offer hundreds of hours of gameplay to its players, both in single and multi-player. And while doing so, they will provide invaluable feedback about gameplay, mechanics, and balancing.

ABOUT MOUNT & BLADE II: BANNERLORD
Bannerlord is the sequel to the acclaimed Mount & Blade: Warband, one of the most successful and influential RPGs of the latest years. Mount & Blade has been universally praised for its deep gameplay, which combines the genres of action RPG and strategy in a sandbox world where every player creates their own story in the fictitious continent of Calradia. This follow-up, prequel to Warband, takes place 200 years before the Calradia we know from previous games. The Calradian Empire is on the verge of collapse, where several factions compete to control the remains of the old empire that once dominated the entire continent.
