Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, sequel to the popular sandbox strategy RPG from Turkish studio TaleWorlds, was released today after over a decade in development. After a meandering two and a half years in Early Access, Bannerlord seems to have lost any hype it might have once aroused on our forums. In the end, it's largely just a remake of Warband with better graphics, which isn't the worst thing in the world. TaleWorlds haven't done themselves any favors by not putting together a launch trailer for it, though. Here's an excerpt from their final development update:


Greetings warriors of Calradia!​
We’re thrilled to announce the official release of Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord on PC and consoles (PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X)!​
Bannerlord first set off on its journey back in 2012 when it was announced some two years after the launch of its predecessor Warband. And while the company was much smaller in these times of yonder, from the start, everyone poured their hearts and souls into creating a medieval sandbox that would offer players many hours of joy.​
We’re immensely proud of the whole team - past and present - that worked together on the title and will continue to do so into the future as we develop the features and changes mentioned in our Release Plans post.​
We’re just as much grateful to our community that supported us throughout the early access period, providing feedback and suggestions that indubitably helped us create a better game. It was a pleasure to meet you at events like Gamescom and PAX over the past years, joining in what we all care about - the games we make and the people playing them.​
The last few weeks were exciting, not just because they were leading up to release, but because they saw the arrival of eagerly awaited features like custom servers, multiplayer modding, and the steam workshop. It should come as no surprise that our talented community of content creators and event organizers wasted little time putting these to good use. Many mods are now available at the click of a button while multiplayer events are pushing past boundaries - with the most recent one this Saturday peaking at over 500 players on a single server.​
Keep an eye on this board if you would like to participate in some of the upcoming tournaments & events.​
Those of you following our steam beta news (or even playing it) already know that we have been working on additional content updates to accompany the launch. With today’s release, we are sharing these - and some extras - with everyone. You can find all the details in the patch notes below. You can also watch our latest development update video that recaps some of the recent changes.​
Finally, we would just like to once again thank everyone that has accompanied us during the early access as well as everyone that is going to join us for the next part of the journey. Whether you are new to the franchise or an experienced veteran, we hope that you will enjoy Bannerlord.​

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is available on Steam and GOG for $50, with a nice 20% launch discount until next week. Another vaporware legend put to rest. Check out the full development update for the final changelog.
