Gekokujo is a mod for Mount and Blade Warband set in the Sengoku period of Japan. The name is a term often translated as "the low-ranked taking over from the high" and was chosen because it was a running theme during that era: from the illustrious Ouchi clan--a belligerent party in the Onin war--being displaced by the Mori (their vassals); to the rise of Toyotomi Hideyoshi (who began his career as a cook and sandal bearer); to the beginning of the Tokugawa shogunate itself (Ieyasu was an upstart who probably fabricated a claim of descent from the Minamoto clan--the only ones allowed to be granted the title of Shogun in the first place). As a player of Gekokujo, you will start from nothing and attempt to gain control of the entire country, making the title even more fitting.
After playing this mod for a few hours, I must say there's lots of effort on the details- such as katana animations, and text dialogs of named NPC characters and the unit upgrade tree. The mod is like playing Shogun Total War in M&B style, the clans are all here and their units have their respective skins.
Well Cheers for such a grand MOD!!
My reason behind giving 10/10 is simple.
The Game was overhauled and improved significantly, though there are still missing ingredients to make even even more interesting.. But its already perfect in such a sense that, it works 100% and is very very enjoyable!!!!!!!
I love this mod so much, thank you for making this, I hope a small unique faction like the iga ninja clan is added so you can fight against the Oda Samurai for the defence of your territory. It would be so awesome! Since I'm too new, this site won't allow me to rate a 10 :(.
FINALLY a samurai mod for Warband! This is a cool depiction of Sengoku period of feudal Japan, the mod balances realism and gameplay nicely without making "too" many concessions in historical accuracy. There are only a few rough edges to be smoothed out and details to be added that could make this mod an easy 10/10
I love playing this mod and I get the feeling (I hope) there's more to come :)
