    Those blogs aren't giving any indication that they're actually finishing the game. Why can't they give us some new info?

    Probably because the release is still really far away.

    I guess the 9 points are for getting anything released in Turkey, of whatever kind, ever.

    It does take a long time to reinvent the wheel.
    First Mount & Blade came out of the blue. Despite being essentially Sid Meier's Pirates on land with medieval combat, it was the work of two creative and passionate people. There's no chance that a project like that run, run by people like that, in this context, doesn't go and indulge itself by trying to make everything more complete, complex, deeper, richer, better and what have you. This looks like a game that could stay in development for a couple more years if the dev deem that useful. It's one of the perks of being indie, after all.
    I don't know if people speculated that at the time Paradox and Taleworlds parted ways, but that choice of an open ended development cycle might well have something to do with the decision.

    As ever though I'm wondering if one thing that is long expected and late to come out can in the end still fulfill the pent up desire and expectation or if the long wait sets up inevitable disappointment.

    I'm pretty conditioned by modern gaming industry and well prepared that Bannerlord is going to be disappointing and possibly even shit.

    I don't think so from what I have seen. Looks like Mount & Blade: Warband 2.0 from the vids.

    You can't really fuck up the formula. Plus huge modding community means 'mods will fix it.'

    All we really want is Warband with better engine and so far that's generally what it seems.
    But the problem is that they don't seem to have a good idea of what the core features are and what they could afford to cut or leave unpolished, which in return means the development cycle spirals out of control.

    How long did it take for good mods to pop up for the original M&B? If Bannerlord is as mediocre as one might expect, waiting 2 years for mods seems like a literal hell.

    I don't think it's comparable. The community was far far smaller back then, plus modding tools were nearly nonexistent. Bannerlord should have more powerful and more accessible tools on launch.

    I just hope they won't focus on MP too much, leaving SP lackluster in the process. I have zero interest in MP.

    Changing with python wasn't so difficult, the guides were very good.

    And before the guides? I remember while working on very early versions of TLD, AW had to reverse engineer some stuff in hex values. It was definitely nowhere near as user friendly as even Warband today, let alone Bannerlord.

    M&B and Jedi Academy MP are the only MP I ever had fun with. I would prefer Bannerlord to have both strong SP and MP.

    SP looks nice. The influence mechanic looks really interesting. Can't remember what they called it... you earn "favor" by doing stuff that you can use to influence other leaders and such.

    TL;DR: We won't announce release date at Gamescom. We don't even have an internal release target! This game is too big and ambitious, you know. So, "when it's done."

    Kind of wanting to get into Mount and Blade... should I go for the original Mount and Blade (modded of course) Warband or wait for Bannerlord?
    Also what mods would you recommend for a first playthough of the first games?

    Don't wait, get Warband modded (companions, diplomacy, etc.)

    https://www.reddit.com/r/mountandblade/comments/4ppwa4/what_are_essential_mods_for_warband/

    I always use the teleport 'cheat' btw, I find it increases enjoyment of the game a lot.

    Prophesy of Pendor is fantastic, but a bit difficult for new players.

    It would be interesting to see what comes of this.
