Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord will continue growing in the coming months until its full release version. “We are thrilled to put forth Bannerlord on GOG”, said Armagan Yavuz, CEO of TaleWorlds. “We want Bannerlord to be available for as many players as possible; the GOG community is one of the best, and we are looking forward to meeting all of them in the fields of Calradia!”.

Bannerlord is the sequel to the acclaimed Mount & Blade: Warband, one of the most successful and influential RPGs of the latest years (and considered by media outlets such as PC Gamer as one of the best PC games ever released). Mount & Blade has been universally praised for its deep gameplay, which combines action, RPG, and strategy in a sandbox world where every player creates its own story in the fictitious continent of Calradia. This follow-up, prequel to Warband, takes place 200 years before the Calradia we know from previous games. The Calradian Empire is on the verge of collapse, and several factions fight to control the remains of the old empire that once dominated the entire continent. In front of them, other factions try to take advantage of the chaotic situation to gain power. Bannerlord was released on March 30th and immediately became a success, being one of the most successful releases on Steam in 2020, where it sits now with a 89% user approval rate.
