Hello all!

Mount & Blade: Warband version 1.172 is out now! This update brings the higher resolution textures, we used in the console release, over to Windows, macOS and Linux.

The majority of textures aren't affected, but you should notice some improvements in the fidelity and aspect ratio of the UI, and a selection of in-game items!

If, for any reason, you are experiencing issues with the patch, you can try lowering your “Texture Detail” setting in the game's launcher, or simply navigate to your Mount & Blade: Warband installation folder ("browse local files" on Steam) and delete or rename the folder "TexturesHD".

Hello all!

We're pushing out an update to fix some of the issues you've been encountering in Invasion.

However, do note that most of these are server-side and so you'll need to wait until the server hosts update their files until you get the full benefit!

Our (almost day 1) patch notes:

-Shields now recover HP along with players at the end of each wave
-Reduced "it's almost harvesting season" sound frequency
-Fix for knockdown mace hitting mounted enemies and causing visual error
-Enemies captured with team change dart no longer visible in drop assignment UI
-Fixed potential crash causing issue on servers in Invasion mode
-All dropped items are now useable by all troops
-Invulnerable helmet is now more protective (but still not actually invulnerable)
-Disarming throwing axe can no longer by turned into an instakill knife
-Additional fixes

New Multiplayer Mode: "INVASION"

  • Co-op mode that lets you fight waves of AI opponents with your friends!
  • Notable characters from single player feature and fight alongside as both friends and foes
  • Choose your companions and assign them classes to survive the waves of enemies
  • Enemies drop random items with special features, including armour that restores your health and a bow that fires javelins!
  • Defeat multiple waves and work your way past enemy lords to kill the king at multiple difficulty levels!

After a few days in beta, our previously announced brand-new free game mode for Warband, "Invasion" is out! Once your game updates, you can dive right into the action and try it out for yourself. This is a first release, so while it should run smoothly, there's a chance you'll encounter one or two issues - we'll keep an eye on things and release patches if and when necessary!

Enjoy the new mode, and be sure to let us know what you think. This mode was developed as a partial, small thanks for all the hours invested and great feedback we've had on Warband over the years.

Why did the knight stop using the internet? Because he was sick of chainmail. Wee medieval joke to get you warmed up there. Melee: Battlegrounds is a 13th Century multiplayer warfare romp being developed by the folks that brought you the cRPG mod for Mount & Blade: Warband. Or at least, it was . Following a failed Kickstarter, the game fled into the forests of the Unknown. But now it has rallied under the funding of Northern Ireland Screen and has returned to the field of battle with a new name Of Kings And Men [official site]. There are also some fresh details, including plans to create a persistent online world in which you can explore the countryside and be battered to death with a mace. Oh, and it s coming to Early Access this month.
