Development Info - posted by DarkUnderlord on Mon 3 October 2005, 04:00:33Tags: Mount & Blade
If you've been following the Oblivion news lately, you'll know that the folks at Bethesda think one programmer and one artist just can't make good mounted combat. Well, Mount & Blade is the independently developed game that proves them wrong (it, quite literally, has been developed by one programmer and one artist).
Combining a sophisticated, dynamic game world and intense medieval swordfighting action, Mount&Blade strives to create a game experience never seen before. Playing Mount&Blade, you will venture through a world filled with daring enemies as well as friendly groups that will come to your aid or need yours. In a land torn by constant danger, raids and skirmishes, you will raise and lead your own war band, commanding dozens of hardened soldiers. You will hunt down your enemies following the tracks they leave behind. And you will fight epic battles where arrows cut the air with deadly hisses, axes and swords hack with fury, and horses and men clash into a violent melee.
With some good graphics and fantastic combat, be sure to download the latest version. It's a try before you buy model so you can download the game and play it until your character reaches level 6 without having to buy it. While the game is currently focussed more on the combat, greater RPG and stronger story elements are planned in future updates. Be sure to check it out.
PS: The game also has crossbows.
