Vikings get another chance in Mount & Blade: Warband

, | News

Mount & Blade: Warband Viking Conquest has relaunched. When the Viking Conquest total conversion DLC launched in December of 2014, it wasn’t the Viking epic it promised to be. More like a clunky skirmish between middle school reenactors. Bad naval battles, buggy quests, and a general lack of polish hurt its reception. While the original developers of Mount & Blade work on the full sequel, the Viking Conquest team over at Brytenwalda have been toiling to make things right. The Reforged edition of Viking Conquest features a longboat’s worth of improvements. Longer quests, companion dogs, hunting, ambushes, ambient sounds, better naval encounters, and even the drudgery of peasant work (if that’s your thing) have been added to the game. The developers have even spruced up multiplayer with a new raid mode, and added a bunch of arms and armor to the package. It’s a Viking renaissance!

The Mount & Blade: Warband Viking Conquest Reforged DLC is available now. Current owners of the DLC will get the upgrade for free.
