Leo likes systems – the more, the better. There, I said it. The original Mount & Blade kept his interest for a while, but there was one problem: It’s a little on the ugly side. Fortunately, TaleWorlds has come to the rescue, with today’s early access release of the sequel, Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord.
Leo’s only had a few hours to get acclimated to this new world, but he likes what he’s seen. Check out today’s NGT for a look at some of the exploration, town interactions, and several ill-advised raids and combat encounters. It looks like the road to becoming a full-fledged bannerlord is going to be a long one. Oh well.
