The much awaited update for Viking Conquest has now entered beta on Steam. The update fixes more and more issues on all released platforms and should improve performance as well as stability, with an extensive list of changes.
In addition to all the fixes, there are a number of additions and improvements to the game! These are fully listed in the changelog but here are some of the highlights:
-Warlords MP Mode
-Advanced diplomatic and party options
-Fleet splitting and advanced fleet management
Note that while this patch should be savegame compatible, we are still in beta so there may be issues. Know that you opt-in at your own risk.
Instructions on opting into the beta below:
To select this, you need to right click on "Mount & Blade Warband" in your Library, select Properties, open the BETAS tab and enter "betapassword" then press Check Codes. Then select the beta from the dropdown menu. You may need to close and restart steam for the download to begin.
We are receiving a rising number of reports about phishing (scam) attempts lately, where a user, typically named "TaleWorlds Ipek" is sending Steam messages to people, asking for money in exchange for Bannerlord Beta access and a copy of the game.
This is not a TaleWorlds developer, these are not legitimate proposals. You should block and ignore the user (and report them, if you would like to help).
We have already messaged Steam and made reports directly, so hopefully this should be dealt with promptly.
Just for some guidance, here are some things that TaleWorlds as a company can 100% guarantee never to do:
-Request money from anyone over Steam Chat
-Request payment from anyone via Skins from another game (seriously...)
-Open public beta testing, without announcing it on our website or forums
We are a professional company, that is not how we do things.
Use your common sense, and always be cautious when someone is offering you something that seems too good to be true. If anyone was a victim of any of these attempts, they should contact Steam for help. TaleWorlds cannot provide any assistance, we are just trying out best to get this user removed/banned.
Anyway, hopefully most of you are completely unaffected. Have fun playing Mount & Blade!
You can now download, rate and get automatic updates to mods on the Steam Workshop! Go to the Mount&Blade Warband Workshop to try out the mods there. This is still a new feature so please let us know what you think and give us your suggestions, in our discussions forum.
