Shortly before the end of the year, Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord releases a new developer diary Outlook on the new contentthat will be introduced in the next beta patch. The changes are numerous. The biggest features of the update include rebellions and two new mission types.
More management options
Feuds for vassals: Above all, in the future you will not only have the opportunity to give your vassals fiefs, but can also give them back if you are currently a vassal of an empire yourself. The management of your lands is also easier thanks to some adjustments to the user interface. You can see problems in the future without having to enter a city first.
Dissatisfaction and Rebellions: Whether the population rebels against you depends entirely on their satisfaction. And that is influenced by numerous factors. These include, for example, the strength of the stationed troops, whether a village has been conquered, how great the cultural difference is between its inhabitants and its ruler, and beyond that, government skills, laws and more.
When does the rebellion happen? If loyalty drops enough and the population’s militia are strong enough, they will try to rebel against their tyrants.
More variety in the missions
Out of jail: With the new update, Mount & Blade 2 has prison breakouts. So you can break into jail to free lords or members of your own faction. For this you have to fight your way through dark vaulted passages together with your protégé.
Battle in the castle: The second type of mission involves fights in the keep, in which you have to adjust to other events. Because here you no longer fight in the open air, but in the winding corridors of the fortifications.
What is the game good for now?
We won’t have the game again until the beginning of December 2020 subjected to an early access test and saw what has happened since the release of the early version on March 30, 2020. We especially noticed the small number of Quest types that the latest patch is working on.
