Mount and Blade: Warband is the first sequel for the action role-playing video game Mount and Blade. First announced in January 2009, the game was developed by TaleWorlds and was published by Paradox Interactive on March 30, 2010. Warband expands on the original game by introducing a sixth faction, increasing the political options, allowing players to start their own faction, and incorporating multiplayer modes. Reveiws of the game were generally favourable, with the addition of multiplayer the most highly praised element.

Linux & Mac Beta comes charging out on Steam!

Posted by TKAzA on Jun 28th, 2014


Warband is extending its supported platforms!
Currently, this should just be seen as a beta test as there are known (and probably unknown) bugs to be resolved but those of you with OSX or Linux machines can play the game right now on Steam.

mnb mnb

To try out the beta on your Linux or Mac computer with Steam just complete the following steps:

  1. Right click "Mount&Blade Warband" in your Steam Library and select "Properties".
  2. In the window that pops up, navigate to the " BETAS" tab and select "Mac/Linux beta" in the dropdown menu.
  3. Install the game and play!

Hopefully you all enjoy the game on its new platforms and let us know if you encounter any bugs! Though it should be functioning pretty well already and is certainly playable.

Note: Napoleonic Wars is not yet supported but will be in the near future.

What needs to be done to allow mods to work with the new platforms, or will they work natively?

They'll work Natively but for those of us modders who use installers we will have to update.

Hi Computica,

Did you already tried mods with one of the betas (Mac or Linux)? At least on my mac I can't seem to get them to work.

Which Linux distributions are support? Usually the binaries under Linux are not so compatible if you copy them to a different distro.
