Mount and Blade is a 3D, open-ended, single-player, third- or first-person, computer role-playing game, created and distributed by the Turkish development house TaleWorlds. Mount and Blade has a medieval setting, without any fantasy elements. Mount and Blade is notable for its emphasis on realistic cavalry combat, which was common in the era, but is largely absent in most RPG titles.
Taleworlds has released a new version of Mount and Blade!
Posted by DainIronfoot on May 12th, 2008
After only a week or so after the release of 0.950, a new beta version of Mount and Blade has been released! 0.951 provides many bugfixes to 0.950. Here's what the developers have to say
I hope you will see for yourself that this is the most sophisticated and improved Mount&Blade version so far, and this fact owes itself to the extra-ordinary efforts of our team and community. First and foremost, I want to thank Steve (aka nijis) who designed and wrote some of the most exciting new features of this version, breathing fresh life to Mount&Blade's gameplay and atmosphere. Also a newer addition to the team but no less welcome, was Ryan (aka Winter), who did a wonderful job rewriting and polishing dialogs, menu and quest texts, making it all so much more inspiring and fun to read. Our programmer, Cem has worked relentlessly, adding new features, fixing and improving the AI and everything else. Our art team, including Ozgur, ipek, Mustafa and our new animator, Pinar (Special congratulations are in order here, because she's getting married tomorrow!!!) have created wonderful looking new models, animations and enviroments. Our concept artist Ganbat has sent us some stunning new drawings and our voice actor Tassilo has sent some excellent new voice samples. We'll also have some very exciting surprises for you soon, from yet another new addition to Mount&Blade team, but let that be my secret for the time being.
So sharpen your sword and ready your horse for Calradia is going to war! Find and download the latest version in the download section.
As always, please post beta reports in the appropriate forum at the Taleworlds Forums.
On another note, this ModDB profile is under new management from the M&B community, so look for frequent updates and hopefully a few of M&Bs excellent mods being showcased here!
Also recently released is the latest version of BRF edit, the file used to open and compile BRF files for mods. This can be found in the download section.
