Every time some news breaks about Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord I get very excited but that excitement is usually short-lived as we still don’t know when the game is actually coming out. With development time reaching about eight years now it’s clear that developers TaleWorlds Entertainment are taking their time to make sure they get the game just right.
The development team announced its latest faction: the Aserai. This faction is based on the tribes that thrived prior to the Arab Conquests of the seventh and eighth century. The Arabs were known for using horses of various breeds back in the various wars so mounted combat will be a big focus of the Aserai. Mounted archers, foot soldiers with short swords and long spears made up the bulk of the Arabs armies hundreds of years ago and TaleWorlds want to try capture that as best they can.
Like I said before there is no hard release date for Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord just yet and if you ask me the developers better hurry up as the game is already starting to look dated and it hasn’t even been released yet.
