I love Mount & Blade. Sure, it's a little rough around the edges, and its ugly as sin, but that's just part of the charm. What other game lets you engage in 200-man battles with muskets and/or swords? Not enough, that's how many.
Correction: I did love Mount & Blade. Now, having seen this texture glitch, replacing "sky" with "dude's face", I'm not so sure. I'm not sure I'm going to get to sleep tonight, either.
To be specific, this is from a tutorial sreen for Mount & Blade: Warband's Napoleonic expansion, which has all the tea, flutes and muskets you could ever want in a multiplayer shooter.
Here's the recently-released expansion's trailer. It's as fun as it looks. Provided you can stomach the reload times.
The Mount & Blade gang at Taleworlds are elevating another mod, this time turning fan-made mod Mount & Musket: Battalion into the paid expansion 'Napoleonic Wars' for M&B Warband. The multiplayer-only DLC drags the warfare sim into the real world during Napoleon's conquest of Europe, with over 220 unique units including engineers, artillery and musicians.
"We re-made it completely from scratch: bigger, better and more," developer Flying Squirrel Entertainment explained in a forum post. As well as shiny new graphics, Napoleonic Wars boasts bags of extra features over the original mod, and has been given a rebalancing.
Arriving this spring, Napoleonic Wars offers five nations from the early 19th century. Warfare's a bit jazzed up since Warband's medieval setting, with guns, artillery including cannons and rockets, and engineers able to construct barricades and plant explosives to destroy enemy structures. There's also a new 'Commander Battles' mode, putting you in charge of squads of bots.
2011's standalone release Mount & Blade: With Fire and Sword was also based upon a mod.
