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: Oda Nobunaga descended from a clan of deputies to the nominal governor of their province, but the Oda usurped them and toppled their neighbors; Toyotomi Hideyoshi began his career as a cook and sandal bearer and ended up the ruler of Japan; Tokugawa 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. As a player of Gekokujo, you will start from nothing and attempt to gain control of the entire country, making the title fitting.
This mod is spectacular,Firstly its troop choices are always fun and frequent so there are many different type of samurai across the land, Secondly the weapons and armour look outstanding making you have and feel that old feudal Japan style, Finally my favourite thing about this mod is its time period, it was when guns existed but weren't the best in the world and when the sword was badass and epic. Overall if you are thinking of getting this mod i wound strongly recommend it.
Firstly, fantastic new graphics and textures. Secondly, amazing new scenes. Thirdly, brilliant setting. Fourthly, a great range of new units and items. All in all, a definite 100% review and a new Gekokujo mod supporter! Can't wait for new updates for this awesome mod.
This mod is one of the most complete mods in M&B:W (and I hear there is still more to come? Wow.) This mod focuses on things that alone, you can not think of. The diplomacy part is my favorite. Keep up the good work and expect drinks from this proud Warbander!
