Chinese Translation Updated

Hello all, just a little update to let you know that the small update you received was to improve the Chinese Translations for the game, which you can select from the game's config window. Shouldn't affect anything else, so don't worry about it if you're not interested in Chinese :).

Caribbean! is now released!

Hello Mount & Bladers!

Today marks the day that Caribbean! goes on full release. After almost a year of Early Access, Snowbird Game Studios (developers of With Fire and Sword) have worked with your suggestions to bring you this release version! It's a unique project and a very different game from when it was first made playable.

As reflected by the name, this project isn't a TaleWorlds or Mount & Blade game but a project developed by Snowbird Game Studios, using a licensed version of Warband's engine, tailored in areas to the specific needs of the title. Given that, you can expect to see a lot of differences, when compared to games from the Mount & Blade franchise.

Caribbean! is now available to purchase on Steam.

Aye, over thousand hours have been sunk in Mount & Blade With Fire and Sword.
And why I've sunk so many hours in this game, you may ask,
The answer is: because I really love the time period of this game and I find it most interesting part of history.

But let me tell you what the game is:
The game is basically reskin of Warband with muskets with the singleplayer which is a sniper simulator in a nutshell.
Multiplayer is full of pike-spammers (is that even a real term?), badmins, musket snipers, horsearchers who can headshot you miles away and stupidly fast infantry (like Crimea and Cossacks) who can almost outrun a horse.

I have very negative thoughts of this game and only good thing is the time period of game.

Perhaps this is bit harsh judgment but buy this game if you are masochist, perhaps then you will find this game fun.

Edit: review updated with more explanatory content and (hopefully) better grammar.

There is not a lot of games if any like this. it has battles that you can take part in battles between hundereds of troops, then eventually become king if you wish. this game is so good, i feel bad for buying the collection for 8$ on bundlestars. i have zero complaints with this game, its simply perfect.

Tis a good but nuanced game. I could only recommend it to people who really like Mount & Blade and are interested in Polish history. Game has promised patches that never came, the "Black Mace" story quest (Ukraine/Zhaparozhie) is still broken IIRC haven't done it recently. The game is also incredibly imbalanced and the firearms are the worst of it.

The sad part is that it's not the inclusion of the firearms, but rather their mechanics. You can reload a a full-length rifle while galloping on horseback, I'm not even exaggerating sadly.

Like I said good but nuanced game. Only buy if you really like M&B and Polish history.

The best game of the series is probably warband but this is just the same but with guns. So its worth the 2.50 euros on the sale and with the normal price 9.5/10

M&B just got harder, this time with guns, oh dear, trying to shoot while riding is very hard but when you get the hang of it a lot of fun, get it in the collection when its on sale.

Great addition to Warband, this DLC allows you to really see the gamplay come out in spades! New factions and weapons are definitly fun!

Fight battles in first person using your horse and sword when you feel lucky and conquer the world as well in the strategy view. This game never seems to stop giving new twists and turns with its great sandbox environment. This game is a lot like sisters, one is always prettier and this one is not that sister (that is NW) but this one has a ton of personality!

- FPS Battles
- Overhead open world conquering
- Strong Character Development
- Strong Team Characters Developed


*Note graphics are dated because the game was released a long while ago but there are modifications available that bring it up to date!

**Quick update 12/27 about the story line, it is a bit flat to start with but then again it is a sandbox game so you are making the story up as you go!

Props to my good friend RedAlpha for giving me this games as a Christmas gift. Thanks alot, buddy. Fire & Sword, as a standalone expansion to Warband, is almost mechanically identical to it's relative game and has everything from it that makes it good, but there are tweaks and alterations that set it apart from the game enough to justify it as it's own separate title. Not only changing the weapons that the skills constitute and the armor and apparel to go with the new, much more advanced and recent setting than Warband, but to go with that, they added guns and grenades (Hence 'Fire and Sword'.) which is my favorite selling point in this game, because of this, they changed the ranged infantry from Archers to Marksmen, whom you can command to form rows thanks to the new additions to the order-giving system this game has. However, Fire & Sword also shares the two infamous gripes I have with Warband: Frustration with regards to difficulty, and as mentioned in the Warband review, letting a snail win a race to you while you're -riding a horse.- Oh well, just like Warband, this gets a 9/10, an impressive.
