Mount & Blade Warband

If you missed the indie developed awesomeness that was Mount & Blade then I pity you. A realistic melee combat system allowed you to engage in medieval battle on horseback with a lance, sword fight, smash skulls in with a mace, slash and hack with an axe and throw spears. There were bows and crossbows and castle sieges and while the whole package was a little rough around the edges it was great fun and completely unique. I got addicted for a few weeks.

Now there is a new version, Mount & Blade Warband and they have given the whole game a graphical makeover but more importantly they have added a multiplayer option so I’ll be a smashing a skull near you very soon. Check out the video.
