News And Announcements
EDIT: APRIL FOOLS! Gotcha, right? Yeah, pretty sure we had you all fooled. Anyway, Bannerlord is of course coming to the PC. Well here's the original prank down below, written by our CEO and the creator of Mount&Blade, Armağan Yavuz (just about the only thing that's true!)
We know that we have been secretive about Bannerlord's features, but today we will reveal one of the most important changes that we are excited about. Bannerlord will be supporting Mobile devices. Actually we are so dedicated to this feature that we have decided to drop support for PCs in order to better focus on mobile development.
Here is a message from company founder and CEO Armagan Yavuz about the subject: "We have been interested in casual mobile games for some time and we have some revolutionary ideas for the franchise. Our upcoming game, Bannerlord will be focused on touch devices and will cater to a much wider audience. To embrace the new direction we have made some exciting changes to the combat mechanics. The new system merges Mount&Blade's directional combat system with the popular and proven mechanics of match three-colors puzzle games. Players will do combat by moving jewels in order to bring three jewels of the same color together. Blocks and attacks will be decided by making special patterns this way. Moreover, players will be able to make combos for extra damage and even make finishing moves. It is such a good system, we don't know why nobody thought of this before."
We are confident that our players will be as excited about these changes as we are.
Hello Mount&Blade players of all demographics!
What does demographic mean? Why is that important? I don't know, maybe no one does but here at TaleWorlds we're looking for answers or... at least responses.
Meaningless drivel aside TaleWorlds is looking to collect some data about the players of Mount&Blade, with a good old fashioned survey. We feel like we have a pretty good handle on our players' likes and dislikes already because you like to make them known to us through forums, twitters and facebooks but have decided that getting results for a survey might be a nice way for us to get some of that as cold hard data.
If you have a spare few minutes then it would be great if you could help us out by filling out the forms and checking the boxes at this link: http://www.taleworlds.com/survey
All of the data is completely anonymous and so doesn't require you to enter any personal information whatsoever. Thank you in advance!
Finally, a new blog entry! Why did it take so long you ask? Because we only present you the best. Quality takes time and one does not simply write a blog on a whim! This one says things about animations. You will learn something if you read it.
Today we are proud to announce that Mount&Blade Warband is now available on NVIDIA SHIELD! Take the battle on the road with the very first Mount&Blade game to be playable on a portable device. This is our first non-PC release as well as our first multi-platform game and we are very excited to see the response. If you own a SHIELD already, you can purchase the game now from the Play Store at a discounted release sale price of $6.99!
With tedious predictability, we are releasing yet another blog. It might be interesting though because it talks about sieges... and they happen to make up a particularly large part of our game and your suggestions.
