[QUOTE=Pat4ever;37837176]This is exactly every game Mount and Blade has been up to date. The only expansion I liked was Warband, and that's only because it expanded on what vanilla Mount and Blade should have been anyway. With Fire and Sword is nothing more than a gun mod added on top, and the newest one coming out just looks like a longbow mod. Pretty disappointing for something they're trying to sell for 30 bucks. I honestly enjoyed the first one but after that I haven't been impressed with the series since. Mostly due to lazy developing.[/QUOTE] Fire and Sword was made by another developer. Warband is a standalone expansion pack that added multiplayer, improved graphics and an upgraded singleplayer. You should really research before you post.

Okay go While you take forever to find it,[B] because I never did[/B], I stand by what I said because obviously the original game developers gave the go ahead for the expansion packs. Doesn't matter if they didn't personally do the work on it; if they allowed them to release the content for it then they are also reason for the terrible expansions that were released. And I know what was included in Warband, I have both freaking games. Like I said, it was additions that should have been in the original game.

[QUOTE=Speedhax;37837957]So a small turkish company should make a perfect first release? The first Mount and Blade was their first game. Making Warband multiplayer probably took a lot of work in itself.[/QUOTE] Why bring up the fact that they're Turkish as if that's supposed to hinder them or something? They could be American or Canadian, wouldn't make a difference. You do realize that they had it as a beta as early as 2004, definitely working on it for years prior? So the "first game" argument doesn't stand very strong. And of course the multiplayer was a lot of work; that's the main difference between it and the original. Singleplayer, while added upon, was laughable in terms of an expansion. You make it seem like I'm hating on Warband; far from it, I enjoyed it far more than M&B vanilla. But as someone who was an early supporter of the game I felt shafted by its release and the other third party content.
The true Mount and Blade successor, not War of the Roses.
Mount & Blade games are really great, I own each game in the series. But each game seems to add only a small amount of features to each next title. Warband polished the game while adding multiplayer. And Fire and Sword polished the game even further and added musket combat. What I am truly worried for, is that this new Mount & Blade might just be a new content update bundled in guise of a fully-fledged game. Sure, a new engine might be nice, but I want to see new gameplay. Perhaps a better trading system which makes playing as a merchant much more feasible, or gives the player the ability to run cities/forts/villages in a way that seems more complex or more impressive. Managing cities/forts/villages currently feels like "PRESS A TO BUILD ADDITION", while I would prefer something along the lines of Dwarf Fortress, where you layout each building that has a specific purpose and you must utilize them effectively. I want this new game to add to gameplay, not graphics.
After seeing all the positive comments I will probably buy Mount and Blade, and if I like it will await the release of this game.
[QUOTE=assassin_Raptor;37839663]After seeing all the positive comments I will probably buy Mount and Blade, and if I like it will await the release of this game.[/QUOTE] If you're going to buy it, buy Warband. Mount and Blade by itself is pretty shoddy, and I'd just get some mods instead of shelling out for Fire and Sword/Napoleonic Wars.
I hope they improve orders/AI, and generally make the combat on a more massive scale. Blood and Steel makes it a little easier, but you still get your troopers totally ignoring orders, archers never wielding bows because a horseman ran by 20 minutes ago, getting pushed off the siege ladders by your own troops, unable to tell your troops to engage certain units, etc. But it's still really fun as-is. I just hope they improve on it this time. Except for enemy's being able to have their moral broken and run, the battles didn't get a whole lot better in Warband.

Could you imagine if they had the political intrigue of Crusader Kings 2 in mount and blade 2. A pipe dream, I know, but still.
[QUOTE=DarkendSky;37839904] Fire and Sword is 100x more fun than warband multiplayer.[/QUOTE] Vanilla multiplayer maybe, but I've definitely had more fun with modded Warband multiplayer than with a non-modded Fire and Sword multiplayer.
Oh fuck why did I waste £20 on WotR. This is what I was waiting for but I didn't know it was happening! I hope some form of Co-Op is being considered by taleworlds.
[QUOTE=ThePinkPanzer;37839928]Could you imagine if they had the political intrigue of Crusader Kings 2 in mount and blade 2. A pipe dream, I know, but still.[/QUOTE] It's not that unrealistic. It's just that it would be a bit of a gamble to make such a game. Taleworlds knows: People like Mount and Blade. But would people like something like you said? They don't know. And a small company as theirs can't afford to make a testing project out of a game, like R* did with GTA IV or DICE did with Mirrors Edge. The best chance is some ambitious guy on kickstarter. It might pop up any day, but it might as well not pop up at all.
There's a video from some turkish videogame show that shows upgraded player customisation like bodybuild sliders. [QUOTE=DarkendSky;37839904] Fire and Sword is 100x more fun than warband multiplayer.[/QUOTE] There's a mod called deluge that's basically fire and sword but for free and for warband. Also more features, some of which never before seen in M&B. Fire and sword is actually p subpar and the balance isnt good. [QUOTE=Pat4ever;37839706]If you're going to buy it, buy Warband. Mount and Blade by itself is pretty shoddy, and I'd just get some mods instead of shelling out for Fire and Sword/Napoleonic Wars.[/QUOTE] I was actually somewhat disappointed when they released warband with a full price tag because it was what mount & blade's final version should have been. Some things I didn't like them getting rid of are the different sizes and types of army patrols before the versions in which lords could leave their castles with troops, black knights, the "strange armor" and zendar.
I only played With Fire and Sword just to fuck around my home country and kill Polish people. That's all we Lithuanians strive for really.
I can tell this trailer costed millions to make. Also I should invest more time in M&B.
Oh shit oh shit oh shit. Welp, I'm hyped.
Here's my wishlist for M&B2: - More coherent campaign with clearer goals - More emphasis on relationships which have an impact to the overall campaign, especially if you're courting a lady from a faction you're in war with - Improved character models and NPC personalities - Better character creation

Why would we have one of those? It is sandbox.
[QUOTE=ThePinkPanzer;37844566]Campaign? Why would we have one of those? It is sandbox.[/QUOTE] for people who want a story for mount and blade? I wish i could finally duel wield in this game, and lower my chances of getting staggered from a blow.
Co-op campaign pls [editline]29th September 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=ThePinkPanzer;37844566]Campaign? Why would we have one of those? It is sandbox.[/QUOTE] The non-multiplayer sandbox thing is called the campaign
Excited for this game, but the teaser was rather 'eh' tier.
If they don't have feinting, chambering and other such things WB has I cant see myself switching over.
Warband was so great. I can't wait for this.
Oh yes, my god yes. Warband was like one of my favorite games ever!
Uhm. Mount and blade doesn't really have a story and you can craft your own. You could become a vassal, or become a footsoldier with a mod. You can create your own kingdom and earn the right to be a monarch, or support a pretender to the throne and become his marshal once you secure his grasp on his kingdom. There's a lot of ways to craft a story in mount and blade, and if you want a campaign, play fire and sword.
Still waiting for someone to say Bonerlord.
or more interesting and varied and more and harder quests i couldn't find much to do during midgame where i was a pretty wealthy mercenary with 60 men, but not strong enough to become a vassal (since then I can't fund my army) the quests were boring and barely moved your relationship up with a lord, and the bandit parties were piss-poor people to fight against since it was so damn easy i kind of wish they'll add some random marauding armies that storm across the land once in a while, like prophesy of pendor, so I have something to do
I really hope they focus on both SP an MP equally. I will be seriously pissed if they remove/dumb down the SP.
i think it's going to be mostly an SP focus, since War of the Roses is basically M&B multiplayer polished with better graphics and some new features, and it is published by the same company
