Mount & Blade: Warband 2010 – Full download PC/MAC
A standalone add-on for the 2005 Mount & Blade game, which combines the features of a sandbox RPG with strategic elements. The expanded version of the game greatly expands the diplomatic system and the artificial intelligence of individual vassals and commanders in strategic and political matters. However, the biggest new feature is the multiplayer mode for up to 64 players.
Mount & Blade: Warband is a standalone add-on to Mount & Blade’s 2005 release, combining sandboxing RPG elements with strategy elements. The title, which was in practice an extended version of the parent game, was developed by original developers from TaleWorlds Entertainment’s Turkish studio, founded by Armagnan chief designer Yavuza.
Mount & Blade: Warband debuted on the market in 2010 March 2014, the production was released on Nvidia Tegra 4-based gaming tablets, and more than six years after its PC release also hit the eighth generation console. The consolation edition stands out from its predecessors with slightly improved graphics. At the same time (as in the mobile version) the game is devoid of one of its greatest strengths, ie, modifications made by the players themselves.
Like the prototype, Mount & Blade: Warband does not have a classic storyline, primarily for the openness of the world and full freedom in shaping the fate of our hero. In the game, we play the character of a traveler who goes to Calradia, maintained in the medieval climate, and our task is to gradually build a reputation by participating in subsequent skirmishes and developing a mercenary subordinate to us. In the course of the game we can act on our own, join one of the rival factions, occupying different areas of the Calradia – and in time even head to it. In addition to the original game versions of Kingdoms of Swadia, Rhodok, Vaegir and Nords, and the Khergic Chanat, Mount & Blade: Warband also appears in the new sixth page of the conflict – the Sultan Sarranid, and with it a number of new characters and missions to fulfill.
In terms of mechanics, production is largely based on the proven first Mount & Blade solutions, and the gameplay takes place on two levels. The first one is a strategic map, where we move around the world and manage the hero, his equipment and the team. During a fight, tournament or after entering the city, the game switches to action mode where we control our hero in the FPP or TPP view, and we give the team a variety of commands. Like the prototype, the game features a realistic combat model and allows you to test a wide range of medieval sword-like swords, axes, bows, crossbows, clubs, and more.
Mount & Blade: Warband significantly develops many aspects of its predecessor and introduces a number of new possibilities, in the vast majority of responses to the suggestions of the players themselves. As in the course of the game our character can reach the very top of the feudal ladder, the creators have improved the artificial intelligence of individual vassals and commanders in strategic and political matters, and have developed our diplomatic capabilities, so that we now have much more power and control over our domain. We can surrender ourselves to other lords and benefit from it; There is also the option of concluding political alliances through marriage. Significant novum is also a possibility to start your own faction. The novelty is complemented by an improved tutorial that explains many aspects of the gameplay, making it easier for beginners to play.
One of the main attractions of Mount & Blade: Warband is the introduction of an enhanced multiplayer mode for up to 64 players. Among the available variants of the game are both the classic (such as Deathmatch, Team Deathmach, Capture the Flag or Conquest) as well as a few original. One is the Siege, where one team is to defend the castle and the other to storm its walls. In the Battle and Fight and Destroy modes, participants also share the defenders and attackers, but in this case there is no classic respawn, and after death we are not reborn until the very beginning of the next round.
