Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord Download is the second full-fledged version of the popular series, combining elements of action games, strategy and RPG. The authors of the prototype and many of their accessories are responsible for the title - Turkish studio TaleWorlds. Story The game was set 200 years before the events of Mount & Blade: Warband. The place of action is a powerful power in the land of Calradia, whose ruler died, leaving no successor heir. In the state, the bandits, nomadic and mercenaries appeared on the trade routes. Fortunately, in our threatened fall, our protagonist appears and his task is to find himself in a complicated political situation and to rule over the knightly gentry courts, restoring the past glory as the leader of one of the six factions available. Mechanics The basic assumptions of Mount & Blade II are not significantly different from the previous ones, so the storyline is only a background for an extremely advanced gameplay. The gameplay has been re-divided into two main aspects: strategic and arcane. During the fun we move on a vast virtual map of the land, which has a total area of about 230 square kilometers. In the surrounding inns we rent wars and adventurers, and in the villages we buy food and drink for our branch. In addition to performing the tasks of the storyline and the mass of secondary orders, there are, of course, many battles in which we stand at the head of one of the fighting armies, watching the action from behind the commander's back. The second part of Mount & Blade is also a whole lot of improvements and modifications that give the game even more sandbox character. Significant improvement has been observed among others. Character wizard, allowing you to modify virtually every element of the face and appearance of the hero. The game introduces us to an improved tutorial that has become much more dynamic and addictive than its predecessor. A lot of work was put into the combat system and the fortress. In battles we can issue more precise orders, and when attacking castles use siege machines and destroy some elements of the walls with them. The improved intelligence is also enhanced by the addition of an artificial intelligence system that makes our warriors able to make their own decisions and move quickly to the place of battle where they will be most needed. Other noteworthy improvements include greater individuality - each has its own history and expertise that may be relevant to the whole team. The game world is full of life and the people are busy with their daily duties and a variety of other activities. The Calradia map also added interesting places outside the cities and fortresses. The game has greatly expanded the possibilities of managing our assets (imposing taxes, training warriors, guiding people to build) and introducing an autonomous trading system that takes into account demand and supply, enabling additional tactics (economic warfare, offensive fortress and resources, etc.). The whole is complemented by an extremely elaborate crafting system, thanks to which we can forge a unique sword, deciding on its appearance and parameters. Technical issues Mount & Blade II has a significantly improved front-of-head with an audiovisual luminaire based on the brand new engine. Improvements can be seen both in the appearance and greater interactivity of individual locations as well as during battles - especially those involving more warriors (such as the siege of castles). Battle scenes can be influenced by factors such as the seasons and the changing weather. In addition, each of the skirmishes can be thoroughly analyzed using an effective replay system. Creators have also forgotten about the moderators, giving players an extremely functional, layer-based editor with huge capabilities.
