MOUNT & BLADE II: BANNERLORD

Release date: 30 March 2020 – early access, Price: 49.99 €

This newly released is popular on the streaming platforms and many popular streamers play it. The game is medieval prequel to the Mount & Blade: Warband and is set up about 200 years before. Combines all RPG, Strategy management game mechanics.

In the game itself you can spend your time running around fighting with the sword leading your squad of the soldiers to kill enemies. But you can as well start sieging castles, building your cities, play board games or settle down and have a family. The main point of the game like in many other RPGs is to develop your character and improve your skills and perks.

What is the con of the early access version is the graphic, which do not fulfil the high standards of the 2020 games and some details of the game looks similar to the first version from 2010, which is definitely intentional by developers, but more improvements could have been made in this regards.

WHY is it so popular by streamers?

The game is currently holding high numbers of viewers because we spent a long time waiting for the second episode of the Mount & Blade series with the first one released on 30 March 2010. The second part was released 10 years after this date and many gamers wants to get in the past and play this game once again. Since high number of streamers are between 20-25 they used to play this game while they had been a kids and the part II is nice memory for all of us.

The expectation about the streaming future of the game is about one or two weeks of high popularity, after it will slowly fade.
