It’s actually happening. This is not a fever dream. Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord, a game which was announced a full year before the current-gen PS4 and Xbox One consoles were revealed, now has a release date.

There are just 40 sleeps to go until you can finally get your armoured mitts on Mount & Blade 2. Developer TaleWorlds has confirmed a March 31st, 2020, Early Access release for the ambitious open-world strategy action-RPG super-duper mash-up hybrid.

Bannerlord will be available to buy through Steam or directly through the TaleWorlds website, priced at  $49.99/€49.99/£39.99. Not cheap, for sure, but the sort of game you can feasibly expect to be playing well into this shiny new decade.

As for what’s included in the Mount and Blade 2 Early Access release? Well, we’ll have to wait and see. TaleWorlds will be sharing more info “shortly before release”

For now, we’re expecting the core of Bannerlord to be present and correct. Players will build up an army in the fictional continent of Calradia, taking on quests, planning out via a strategic map, using siege machines before getting into the thick of the action  with the skill-based directional combat system that’s all the rage on melee action these days.

Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord comes to Steam Early Access on March 31st.

Honestly I can wait a little for this. I don't really like buying early access games.

This leaves bad taste in my mouth, game was announced in 2012 then in 2016 it should have been released or something like that, 4 years later after bunch of delays we finally get something positive - early access. Yeah not great but still nice to get hands on it, buuut it cost full price... This game is not on my priority list by far but this is just sad. Early access should never cost full price no exceptions.

I mean, yeah but It's Early Access it should be 29,99 at most.
Bad move if you ask me

Yup, makes no sense, a early access games, or beta, alpha or whatever they nae their unfinished product shouldn't cost a dime nor would there be a way to charge for it, at worst there shoud be a symbolic fee lie 5 bucks or something

Really, what if they never release the final version of the game? I've had this before, and I don't want to pay for a raw product.
