Mount & Blade: Warband is getting beards and boats

, | News

Shiver me timbers! Taleworlds has announced Mount & Blade: Viking Conquest. The DLC adds Vikings to Mount & Blade Warband. Yarrr, me mateys! It will feature bearded Norsemen, manly new arms and armor, a new sandbox map, and new game modes like sea battles and coastal raids. Avast! The team behind the popular Brytenwalda mod is working with Taleworlds on this conversion.

Viking Conquest takes the Mount & Blade franchise into historical Dark Age Britain, at a time when Norsemen began to raid the British Isles, looting monasteries and burning coastal settlements.

Mount & Blade: Viking Conquest is coming to Steam early access “soon”. Ahoy! The full sequel, Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, is still being worked on by Taleworlds.

Meet the hairy folks behind Mount & Blade II

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is coming and TaleWorlds has started a blog to remind all the budding horsemen that it’s on the way. The first entry is all about their talented artists.

You’ll find preened moustaches, pretentious glasses, a range of characters and personalities.

I don’t know how hairy or pretentious they are, but they’ve obviously got some talent if that work-in-progress image is any indication. It looks better than the previous entry in the series, which wasn’t an ugly game by any means. Mustache power!
