Hey all!

The small update was just a change to add support for Simplified and Traditional Chinese to Viking Conquest Reforged Edition!

If that interests you, great! If not, nothing to worry about :)

Have a nice day!

About This Game

In a land torn asunder by incessant warfare, it is time to assemble your own band of hardened warriors and enter the fray. Lead your men into battle, expand your realm, and claim the ultimate prize: the throne of Calradia!
Mount & Blade: Warband is the eagerly anticipated stand alone expansion pack for the game that brought medieval battlefields to life with its realistic mounted combat and detailed fighting system.
  • Graphical overhaul: Support added for HDR, FSAA, depth of field, soft particles, tone mapping, and many other effects
  • New models with greater detail and high-quality textures
  • Multiplayer battles with up to 64 players. Multiplayer modes include Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, Conquest, Battle, and Siege
  • A campaign allowing you to become the ruler of a faction and convince lords to become your vassals
  • The ability to upgrade your companions to vassals by granting them lands
  • The ability to marry a lady of the realm for romance or cold political gain. Try to win a lady’s heart through poetry or bravery
  • Improved mechanics for soldier morale: Soldiers will break and run away if their morale gets too low
  • Pick any projectile off the battlefield for use as additional munitions
  • New motion-captured combat animations
  • Numerous improvements to the combat system: Your shield will still stop arrows even if you are not actively defending
  • The ability to play multiplayer matches on random maps as well as hand-designed ones
  • Multiplayer equipment system: Earn money by fighting opponents or accomplishing goals
  • The ability to use most throwing weapons in close combat: Switch to using a javelin as a short spear when the enemy gets close
  • Spend gold on more powerful equipment, using a carefully balanced system that will make combat more exciting without giving too much of an advantage to the leading team

How to Thermopylae in a Few Easy Steps!

1) Win a victory but lose 90% of your army because you suck.

2) Go to your castle to rest and heal the wounded.

3) See entire enemy army appear around your castle to besiege it.

4) Wish you had saved earlier.

5) Watch them in dread, knowing that the siege ladders will be done soon.

6) Pray and then click 'Join Battle' when they assault

7) Set up your 10 infantry at the ladders and your 5 archers on a nearby rampart.

8) Stand on the ladder and kill oncoming enemys for half an hour.

9) Watch as your men slowly fall around you until you stand alone.

10) Suddenly realise that there is one enemy left.

11) Kill him.

12) Celebrate!

13) Get destroyed by a band of looters because you are now alone.

14) Begin building an army again...

15) Rage quit the game and start a new campaign


10/10
Would restart my game again.

What in Ragnar’s name did you just ♥♥♥♥ing say about me, you little Swadian? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Sargoth Axe Throwing Academy. I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Swadian land and I have over 300 confirmed rapes. I am trained in pillaging and I am the top axe thrower in the king’s shieldwall. You are nothing to me but just another peasant. I will murder you with savagery the likes of which has never been seen before on Calradia, mark my ♥♥♥♥ing runes. You think you can get away with saying ♥♥♥♥ like that to me over the internet? Think again, Swadian. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of Huscarls across Calradia and your fiefs are being scouted right now so you’d better prepare for the storm, peasant. The storm that wipes out your pathetic little thing your call your kingdom. You’re ♥♥♥♥ing dead, horse-user. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over 700 hundred ways and that’s just with my beard. Not only am I extensively trained in facial combat, but I have access to the entire Nord armory and I will use it to it’s full extent to wipe your miserable ♥♥♥♥ off of Calradia, you little ♥♥♥♥. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you. Maybe you would have held your ♥♥♥♥ing tongue, but you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ idiot! I will ♥♥♥♥ throwing weapons all over you and you will drown in them. You are ♥♥♥♥ing dead, kiddo. I will drink from your skull!
