Hello all,

We just pushed out a small patch to fix an issue that was affecting some players in Reforged Edition. Don't be alarmed! :)

We hope you are enjoying the new update and are looking forward to Gamescom...

Thanks for your support
PC Gamer

The Mount & Blade: Warband Viking Conquest Reforged Edition is a "monumental update" to last year's DLC release that incorporates a number of new features including "The Last Tuatha De Danann", an all-new story set in the dark, mysterious fantasy realm known as Ireland.

A full breakdown of what's included in the Reforged Edition is up on the TaleWorlds website, with high points including the Hofs of the Nordic Gods, where players can recruit powerful but unpredictable Berserker troops; a faithful canine companion; "Labour mini-games," in which you give up all that raping and the pillaging in favor of an honest day's work in a quarry or on the farm; new quests, events, and items; an Ambush System; and significant changes to multiplayer. 

"We are very excited to be releasing Viking Conquest Reforged Edition today as a service to our players and fans!" TaleWorlds said. "Our friends and developers of the DLC, Brytenwalda, have been hard at work over the past few months creating this monumental update."

The Viking Conquest expansion, originally announced in October 2014, adds a single-player campaign to the game featuring, as you might have guessed, Vikings and conquest. I haven't played Mount & Blade: Warband myself, but Phil makes me think that I should: He said in November that while it's not the best-looking game ever, "it's an absolutely brilliant RPG-cum-strategy—filled with a multitude of freeform, sandbox options." The Mount & Blade: Warband Viking Conquest Reforged Edition is out now.

Hello all! We are so excited to be bringing Reforged Edition out for the Viking Conquest DLC today.

Over the past 7 months since it released, Viking Conquest has made a massive transformation and Reforged Edition marks the biggest change yet with such a long list of improvements and fixes.

For us, it is an honour to be releasing the update to the community, who has been so supportive of us at TaleWorlds and the developers, Brytenwalda and we are really excited to see the reaction!

The update is free to all owners of the DLC and included in all new purchases. Here is a list of the major new features in the update:

Reforged Edition
Viking Conquest Reforged Edition is a completely free update to all owners of Viking Conquest, which adds a host of new features and content as well as re-balancing and fixing previous issues with the DLC. Play through an all new storyline set in dark, mysterious Ireland, befriend a canine companion and master the art of fighting with the unpredictable Berserker units. Rekindle your passion for Viking warfare and reforge your path in this much improved version.


  • The Last Tuatha De Danann
    All new story, set in dark, mysterious Ireland where nothing is what it seems and truths are hidden...
  • Hofs of the Nordic Gods
    Visit the holy grounds of the Nordic Gods. Make sacrifices and recruit powerful yet unpredictable Berserker troops into your army.
  • Dog Companion
    A loyal canine friend who will stay by your side, even on the battlefield.
  • Start As Leader of a Faction
    Skip the rise to power and get straight into Reforged Editions expanded kingdom management.
  • Crouching and Hunting
    Feed your men a better variety of food by hunting wild boar but beware, startle these creatures and they're liable to attack.
  • Working (minigames)
    Out of luck and out of pennings. Commit yourself to an honest day's work in a quarry, mine or farmstead.
  • New Ambush System
    There is no greater weapon than the element of surprise; catch your enemies off guard with an ambush attack. Though you must keep your wits about you, or you could be the target of an ambush yourself.
  • Adventuring Companions
    Companions that leave the player's party from discontent may now strike out on their own as adventurers, gathering their own forces and making their mark on the world.
  • New Quests and Roleplay Events
    Discover assassination plots, interfere in affairs of religion and more with these new sandbox quests.
  • Improved Atmosphere
    New ambient sounds and scene contribute to a richer experience in historical Dark Age Britain.
  • New Items
    Dozens of new weapons and armours as well as updates to old visuals.
  • Battles
    Improved enemy AI, incorporating tactics and formations add a new dimension to battles. Shock troops such as the Berserkir fight like animals but in the heat of battle may not distinguish friend from foe.
  • Kingdom Improvements
    Customise your kingdom's colour, ransom prisoners to the enemy and raise your peasants as a levy army in times of need.
  • Expanded Multiplayer
    New scenes and Raid game mode. Improvements to the UI and additional options for server admins to take control of the invaders in Invasion mode.
  • More Immersion
    Special player traits and the ability to spread rumours to influence people throughout the land. More lively scenes with domestic animals walking around. Extra information about your companions and the option of a second player outfit for use outside of battle, as well as much more roleplay and many more immersive features.
  • Customise Your Level of Difficulty and Goals
    Set your own goals to become an Infamous Raider, Strong King, Beloved Warrior and more. Customise your difficulty options to cater your own experience and challenge.

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 :).

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.

Hello Bladers,

We are receiving a rising number of reports about phishing (scam) attempts lately, where a user, typically named "TaleWorlds Ipek" is sending Steam messages to people, asking for money in exchange for Bannerlord Beta access and a copy of the game.

This is not a TaleWorlds developer, these are not legitimate proposals. You should block and ignore the user (and report them, if you would like to help).

We have already messaged Steam and made reports directly, so hopefully this should be dealt with promptly.

Just for some guidance, here are some things that TaleWorlds as a company can 100% guarantee never to do:
-Request money from anyone over Steam Chat
-Request payment from anyone via Skins from another game (seriously...)
-Open public beta testing, without announcing it on our website or forums

We are a professional company, that is not how we do things.

Use your common sense, and always be cautious when someone is offering you something that seems too good to be true. If anyone was a victim of any of these attempts, they should contact Steam for help. TaleWorlds cannot provide any assistance, we are just trying out best to get this user removed/banned.

Anyway, hopefully most of you are completely unaffected. Have fun playing Mount & Blade!
