Nachdem ich auf der Gamescom so schönes Pressematerial bekommen habe, will ich das der Welt mal nicht vorenthalten. Zu erst hier die Pressemitteilung.
MOUNT & BLADE II: BANNERLORD SHOWS ITS SINGLE-PLAYER SANDBOX CAMPAIGN AT GAMESCOM
The difference between life and death, victory and defeat, glory and misery, is as thin as your shadow, as sharp as your blade, as swift as your horse. The world is crumbling, and the spoils of its fall are at hand for men and women with wits, ambition and battle skills — people such as you. Your destiny is yours to decide. Will you find glory and write your name in the history of Calradia?
COLOGNE, AUGUST 21st. — FOR IMMEDIATE PUBLICATION
TaleWorlds Entertainment is excited to show, for the first time, the unique sandbox single-player campaign of Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord in a hands-on demo at Gamescom 2018.
In this demonstration, players will have total freedom to engage with the world of Mount & Blade in any manner they want.

Exploring, trading, hunting down bandits, fighting in tournaments, meeting many different characters and taking quests — you get to decide your own destiny… As long as you’re strong enough to enforce your will with your blade.
