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.

Post news Report RSS Work Suspended, 3.1 Beta Patch

I stopped working on this mod, but there is a 3.1 beta patch available.

Posted by on

I announced this in the Taleworlds forum, but not here, Steam Workshop, or Nexus. For that, I apologize. I released the 3.1 beta patch a long time ago in the same forum, because I wanted a small group of testers to iron out the bugs with the mod before I put it up here -- you all only deserve a tight bug-free experience. However, I hadn't expected to suddenly stop working on the mod, so only Taleworlds was left with 3.1 while you got nothing.

I'm not restarting work on Gekokujo right now, but I am going to rectify one mistake by linking you to the 3.1 beta patch thread (and uploading it as well). It is playable and *mostly* bug-free, thanks to the good people in the Taleworlds forum, but it is not quite up to the standards I think a patch should be before it gets released here. And most importantly, it's save-compatible with 3.0.

A description of the changes are available in the beta patch thread: Forums.taleworlds.com

Installation Instructions:

1. Install Gekokujo 3.0 (if you haven't already)
2. Install the contents of the patch over Gekokujo 3.0 (this is the only step if you already have 3.0)

The patch is 41mb. If it is smaller than that, the download was corrupted and you should try a different mirror.

This sucks, but no can do. Gekokujo is anyway one of the most polished and content rich Warband mods, so compliments are in any case in order. Sincerest thank yous for creating it!

Thank you for the patch! This means you completely ended your development of this mod? Or you just suspended it?

Suspended, but likely the final if Bannerlord comes out before I get the itch to return to it again.

Love you man. Even after all this time, i'm enjoying Gekokujo way too much, it's one of the best mods out there. Thank you for all your hard work.

I'm also curious as the person above, did you completely end the development or only halted it for now?

This is still the best single player mod for M&B, I can't wait to play your final patch.
