Mount & Blade Warband: Napoleonic Wars DLC Announced


Paradox Interactive has announced that Flying Squirrel Entertainment and Taleworlds Entertainment are working on Mount & Blade Warband: Napoleonic Wars for release later this spring.

Quote:
From occupying Calradia to the invasion of Russia, Warband fans will have a new war to look forward to this year. Paradox Interactive and Taleworlds Entertainment today announced the next DLC for popular action RPG Mount & Blade Warband. Napoleonic Wars is a multiplayer expansion pack that will take players back to the final years of Napoleon’s conquest in this massive update for the definitive open-world sandbox series.

Developed by Flying Squirrel Entertainment and Taleworlds Entertainment, Napoleonic Wars will support multiplayer battles of up to 250 soldiers and enables players the chance to create a character from 220 unique units available, all hailing from five different European nations. Fight battles with your tried and true sabre or utilize newly introduced artillery pieces such as cannons and rockets in this historically accurate and immersive 19th century experience like no other.

Players can partake in Napoleon’s conquest when Mount & Blade Warband: Napoleonic Wars launches later this spring.

M&B is basically a combat simulator with an RPG tacked on, but it's still one of the best games I've ever played. Definitely a must play for fans of the Renaissance (if you like to go to Renne Faires, you will love this game).

I was disappointed with Fire & Sword though, as I had played mods that did basically the same thing, only better. Hopefully this "expansion" will be a bigger improvement.

Then I can't wait for Mount & Blade: Modern Warfare!

I love M&B. A little weary of the guns though. M&B With Fire and Sword wasn't so good. And whats going on with the announced Mount and Blade 2? Its been a while a nothing new? Now they are doing another expansion to 1?

Sounds like fun. I hope it's as good as the existing napoleonic mods.

This is an existing mod apparently, only now going paid for. I think this is a little to late in the games life though as the servers aren't exactly buzzing with activity.

Now that I've seen the video, it looks way too polished to be a Taleworlds mod. I'm only interested if this adds a single-player campaign. I'm not going to pay for a multiplayer mod that I can already get for free.

You won't want it then, Multi only.
