Mount & Blade: Warband Announced for Consoles, Coming in September

By Kevin Tavore, 2 months ago
The critically-acclaimed Mount & Blade – Warband is finally making the jump from PC to consoles next month. The game sees you building your own warband in medieval times. The ultimate goal is, of course to become king of Calradia. In your quest, you'll do things like:
  • Convince lords to become your vassals
  • Marry for politics or power, but not love
  • Grant your companions land, giving them titles as lords
  • Engage in both small skirmishes and epic battles
  • Explore regions in an open world
  • Make decisions that affect the story of your character

The highlight of the game is the combat. It focuses on realism. Your tactics will matter as much as your skills, as you use both melee and ranged weapons to kill your opponents in both single player and up to 32 players in multiplayer.

Mount & Blade: Warband will launch on September 16th for Xbox One.
