Iron Europe is a World War I mod for the Mount&Blade; Warband Napoleonic Wars DLC. Our goal is to immerse players in the brutal battles of WWI. Players will have the opportunity to fight it out, for France or for Germany, in the trenches and in no man's land. Play as an expendable rifleman grunt, a brave officer leading from the front, an artillerymen supporting your comrades from afar, or an elite assault trooper, spearheading attacks.Use bolt-action rifles, machine guns, and pistols to take down enemies from a distance or close in and engage in brutal hand to hand combat with knives, clubs, and the trusty bayonet. A host of features, including whistles, bleeding, bandaging, and grenades have been added to bring the WWI experience to life.

-Two Factions: French Third Republic, German Empire. Fight for the French Third Republic or the German Empire. These mighty titans of Europe have different strengths and weaknesses which players can discover and use to their advantage.
-Wide variety of classes: Each class is unique, with it's own advantages, disadvantages and equipment sets. Apart from typical, expected classes such riflemen, officers, and artillerymen, you'll have the opportunity to play as a support trooper, helping your comrades with ammunition and bandages. Or instead, be an elite Stormtrooper, serving the Vaterland by overrunning enemy defenses and striking deep into their territory. Yet more opportunities await you as a French trench sweeper, a Chauchat gunner or an armored German sentinel.
-Tons of New Weapons: A wide range of killing instruments are at your disposal including bolt-action rifles, revolvers, semi-autos, machine guns, sniper rifles, knives, clubs and bayonets.
-Grenades: Use grenades to assault enemy positions. There are several different types, including both fuse and percussion grenades. Each has unique characteristics, for example, the M16 Stielhandgranate has long range but is awkward to carry while the F1 grenade can be carried in great numbers but cannot be thrown very far. Several Stielhandgranates can be bundled together to form a concentrated charge. There are also place-able grenade launchers and rifle grenades.
-Medical System: Taking a large amount of damage causes bleeding which can be stopped with bandages, carried by support troopers and medics. Medical classes can provide treatment with morphine.
-Ammunition Crates: Support troops can carry ammo crates around the battlefield, allowing comrades to resupply.
-Heavy Machine Guns: Heavy machine guns can be carried around the battlefield and are highly effective in holding positions. Cut down advancing enemy forces with automatic firepower.
-Whistles: As an officer, rally your men and sound the charge with a whistle.
-Binoculars: Binoculars come in handy when you're a sniper, artilleryman or officer. Locate enemy positions and plan accordingly.
-Artillery: Rain fire on your enemies with infantry support guns, field guns and trench mortars.

Good news from the front. Although we are choosing not to show any eye candy to you yet, we thought we had better let you know what’s going on. The remnants of the developer team are on leave from the busy time of school and work has recommenced on Iron Europe 2.0.

As eluded to above, the team is very much diminished, with several members needed elsewhere. Therefore, the developer team is looking for people with useful skills such as:

We will bring you exciting news and evidence soon, but for now, hold tight. In the mean time, please advertise this mod, and tell all your friends of the aforementioned news.

The last released news from the team can be found here.

IE 1.21 events are still running, and can be found on the FSE board.

Thank you, as ever, to those who continue to support us,
IE 2.0 Development Team.

Can you make a download link for the raw mod files that can be place inside the "Modules" folder? Making an installer just adds an unnecessary level of complexity and makes life harder for those running non-Windows operating systems and those who cannot run .exe files.

Sorry, uploading the raw mod files would be illegal because the installer has a CD-key check for Napoelonic Wars.

all the M&B mods work like you DL the files put into Mudules folder chek the module in the launcher and have fun
or is it like going to change the game so you cant use the typical game anymore therefore it wont be a module but a complete game source change so you have to use a exe?

If you do not want a mod for Napoleonic Wars then please answer this one question:

Why are you on this mod page? Iron Europe is a strictly Multiplayer Only mod that uses guns, thus needed to be used in conjunction with Napoleonic Wars.

Also, please do us all a favour and do not scream at the creator of the mod, he has been kind enough to take his time to message you and this is how you treat him? He made an amazing mod that the community waited to be released and then waited for it to be revived again and now he's back you treat him like this?

It took him years to make this, the amount of time and effort to make this mod is astonishing, I am ashamed that this is how ungrateful and spoilt some people can be.

You're ungrateful and you need to get your priorities straight.

Rant over.

The Official EU server should be up. Also, this event( was going on for a while with 50+ players but they are taking a break currently. I would keep an eye on that for future events.

From my time with the press copy, I've found that this game is absolutely next-gen. Taking the already astounding M&B engine and taking it to all new heights. This includes the DirectX11 beard physics. I found the opening cutscene very emotional, it struck my soul and immersed me into the story-driven world of Iron Europe. The only downside to this game so far, is the lack of a download link. Edit: Download link has been released, as well as an update to the game platform to enable Oculus Rift…
