    So Mount and Blade 2 got a massive 30 minute game play reveal yesterday at PC Gamers weekend.

    Do we have any other Mount and Blade fans here? The original game was incredibly fun and the mod support some of the best in any game. But a search of the forum showed no forum posts for it!

    But anyway, cheers for the link. Is there anything resembling a release date yet?

    Yes there are fans here, and yes there were threads, and yes, forum search is a big bag of arse. I have player a great many hours of various Mount and blades over the years, and I'd be interested to know if 2 has a release date.

    Ahh, at least I tried finding it!

    Back in October we got told sometime this year, indeed at the end of that video during a Q&A, Lust the community manager, said we should hopefully be playing it by the end of the year.

    I'm hoping he means in a playable form and not a beta. Although I'd happily pay for an early access to the game. It appears from the video very much all of the bulk of gameplay is there. We've already seen a brief piece of siege gameplay back in August, again Lust said in the next few weeks they'll offer us an extended look at sieges and how they work.

    I think I'll be playing Mount and Blade tonight.

    You know I only discovered fast travel after about 80 hours of gameplay.

    And I only discovered you could make the world map go fast after about 120 hours.

    Twat.

    Think I've read about 10 'games to look out for in 2017' - M&B2 not mentioned on any of them.

    This game is right up there with Mass Effect Andromeda and RDR2 for me.

    Bought it, downloading. Time to play!

    Interested to know what kind of state it's in. The development has been ridiculously protracted.

    I tried playing the first game, but couldn't get on with the controls - has that improved with the new version?

    So I know this is meant to be buggy, but it runs fine for me, load screens are nippy but I do have a decent CPU, no crashes. The one performance issue I've had is a settlement siege with 700+ combatants where the frame rate dropped to 15 or so and paused every 3 seconds.

    So far it seems like a prettier M&B with some extra stuff.

    Worth coughing up for do you reckon, or wait until it leaves early access?

    I'm completely happy with it, but if you have the patience to wait then I can only imagine it will be better when it leaves early access.

    That sudden slowdown is from a pathfinding bug, not to worry with specs.
