It looks like TaleWorlds Entertainment is still working on Mount and Blade II: Bannerlord, according to a new post that is. And in that post, the devs make mention that gamers will be able to learn more about the Early Access phase sometime before the game becomes available in March.
Although Mount and Blade: Warband released in March 2010, and a spin-off / stand-alone expansion billed as Mount and Blade: With Fire and Sword followed a year later, many gamers wanted something new for years to come.
The good news is that the second installment is three months away. During that time, folks will gain word straight from the devs in a month to two month’s time on what Early Access has in store.
This info comes from the team’s official blog section as seen below:
“We will be back in the new year with more blogs and details about Bannerlord’s early access in March so make sure to follow us on our social media channels to stay up to date with all of the latest news. We hope you all have a wonderful time over the holiday period!”
Hopefully, the blog posts won’t be filler or empty but stand as something noteworthy for those eager to jump in and try the upcoming Early Access build of Mount and Blade II: Bannerlord. In other words, hopefully, the devs are upfront on what’s to come so that those out of the loop aren’t paying for something that could spend way more time in the oven.
In the meantime, the last blog post for 2019 by TaleWorlds Entertainment can be found over on taleworlds.com, outlining what fans can expect from raiding and defending settlements against the forthcoming title’s AI.
Lastly, the game that will support mods is still on for a March, 2020 Early Access debut for PC via Steam.
