Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord Developer Blog - Skirmish Gameplay

TaleWorlds Entertainment's sandbox RPG Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is currently going through a closed multiplayer beta. As a result, thanks to this week's developer blog, we can watch 20-something minutes of raw and unedited gameplay footage that shows off Bannerlord in its current state while using a Skirmish match as an example. Have a look:

Greetings warriors of Calradia!

As you know, Bannerlord’s closed beta is well underway! Throughout the beta, we have been introducing new content while working alongside our community to gather feedback, find and fix bugs, polish technical aspects of the game, etc.

Meanwhile, gamescom is just on the horizon. This year’s event is shaping up to be our biggest one ever, with both multiplayer and singleplayer set to be shown in the public and business areas of the trade fair respectively. As we have discussed in previous blogs, these kinds of events are a huge undertaking and require a lot of planning and preparation to ensure that things go as smoothly as possible!

We know that many of you can’t wait to get your hands on the game, and we are aware that only a small fraction of you will be able to play it at gamescom. Likewise, we know that many of you are hoping to get into the beta and test the game out, but haven’t been invited or had a chance to apply to take part just yet (don’t worry, your chance will come!). So, with that in mind, and with this being the 100th dev blog in the series, we thought we would do something a little different and try and make the wait a little more bearable by showing you some raw footage of the Skirmish game mode directly from last week’s beta test. There are no fancy cuts or edits, so expect to see your fair share of bugs (and some terrible skills from our community manager...), however, we hope you enjoy the video nevertheless!
