"Personally rule your own feudal realm from the ground up. Fantastic slasher melee with a-build your own story-kind of theme, which makes for a great rpg"

Mac OS X/Linux and Steam Workshop Support

Hello all!

Mount&Blade Warband is now functional on OS X and Linux platforms and has enabled support for Module downloading with Steam Workshop. These features are only newly released and there might be a few hiccups. Just let us know in the Steam or TaleWorlds forums and we'll continue to fix and improve our support.

This is the reason for the patches occurring over the past couple of days. Happy Mount&Blading!

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

If I had a choice between having sex with a woman or playing Mount & Blade: Warband, I'd probably still choose sex with a woman.

But afterwards I'd tell her to get the ♥♥♥♥ out of my house so I can play Mount & Blade: Warband.

I was hit in the balls with a Javelin and couldn't pull it off...

still managed to climb a ladder and single-handedly conquer a city with the wooden stick sticking out of my crotch.

69/10 would play repeatedly.

Well, I guess it's cheaper than crack.

Mods are fun too.

10/10, would bend the knee to Stannis again

DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BUY THIS GAME. Seriously, look how many hours I've played: Over a thousand.

People make fun of MMO players because they spend so much time working for imaginary goals, but at least they're hanging out with friends and collaborating. I've just been sitting here alone in my underwear in the dark. FOR 1000 HOURS.

I used to be like you. I had friends and family, hobbies and interests. I used to cook for myself and clean my apartment once in a while. I used to have house plants for god's sake!

I thought becoming king would take a week or two of gaming sessions at most. I WAS WRONG. Please, if there's anything you value in life, don't buy this game.
