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.
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.
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.
Why didn't we call the Mount&Blade II: Bannerlord Blog "Bannerlog" or "Bloggerlord"? The reason is that we're too damn mature. You should grow up too and do some reading for a change. Start with installment 3 of our Bannerlord Blog. It contains the unexpected.
Our Bannerlord bloggery returns for the second part in the series where we discuss our serious engine and post some pictures of our serious fog. Do say how it makes you feel.
