It's astounding how many hours I've logged into Warband. Can't wait I hope it feels like Warband 2.
"This sandbox action-RPG strategy hybrid will take players on a journey into a fictional world of up-close and personal medieval combat on a huge scale, bigger, bloodier and more intense than ever before. Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord will build upon the popular Mount & Blade franchise bringing in many exciting and highly requested new features."
I hope they improve on the Diplomatic Gameplay of mount and Blade. I found it a little too rusty and didn't go the way you wanted it to.
