Bannerlord hits consoles October 25

TaleWorlds Entertainment has revealed that Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord will finally launch on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S on October 25. Most likely, on that day the game will also leave Steam Early Access, where Bannerlord has been available since March 2020.

The developers originally announced plans to bring the Mount & Blade: Warband prequel to consoles in 2015, long before the PC version hit Early Access. Koch Media’s Prime Matter, which signed a developer deal in 2021, will release the title on PlayStation and Xbox platforms. As part of the deal, Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord will be available worldwide in retail stores, in addition to digital versions.

If you’d rather own a digital copy of the game, be prepared to download around 40GB on PS4 and 34GB on PS5, according to the PlayStation Game Size Twitter account. The medieval strategy RPG is probably of comparable size on Xbox consoles, more or less.

Since March 2020, Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord has received numerous updates on PC that have added all-new systems, like rebellions and prison breakouts, to the already ambitious project. The game’s latest major update arrived in May, bringing an extra fighting game mode for up to 120 players and seven additional scenes on the board.

Mount & Blade 2 has received praise from gamers, currently sitting at 87% positive reviews on Steam, but has also done well financially. Earlier, TaleWorlds Entertainment co-founder Armağan Yavuz revealed in an interview that the game has sold over three million units on PC. Yavuz said the modding community is really important to the studio, as a number of Mount & Blade modders have been brought into the team over the years.
