Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord Ready For Debut at Gamescom

Gamescom is quickly becoming E3’s younger, better looking European cousin…thanks in part to the debuts that it gets which E3 doesn’t even get a chance at. Besides The Technomancer, yet another game still expecting a formal public showing is going to make its debut at the Colonge, Germany event: Taleworld’s Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord.

Besides the announcement of the sequel, there was also mention of the impressive sales total for the previous game:

    TaleWorlds Entertainment will be revealing Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord for the first time at Gamescom 2015 in Cologne. Media will be invited to attend private viewing sessions of live gameplay from the game in its current state. Video and additional information about the game will be released to the general public concurrently, satiating some of the massive player demand for information on the new entry to the franchise.
    The series, which has until now accumulated over 6 million unit sales, is a favourite among players, much loved for its refreshing sandbox gameplay that centres around player freedom. This next instalment takes place 200 years before Warband but brings the series forward by greatly expanding gameplay in all areas and offering much improved visuals.

With the game nearly approaching vaporware status thanks to the lack of updates, it’s refreshing to see that after three years of ongoing development, Bannerlord is finally nearing release. Though no date has been given on when that will happen, Taleworlds has promised to update fans about its progress when the RPG is officially unveiled at Gamescom next month.

Until then, you can catch up with the game on its official website.
