Interactive today announced the release date for their
highly anticipated upcoming PC medieval, action-RPG title,
Mount & Blade. Mount & Blade will be released
in the UK and Europe on September 19th, 2008.
Mount & Blade is a single-player, third or first-person
action/role-playing game with a focus on medieval combat.
Developed by the Turkish development house TaleWorlds
Entertainment, the BETA version of the game has received
acclaim worldwide from gamers impressed by the game’s
realistic horseback combat, luscious graphics, and open-world
sandbox gameplay. The latter enables players to roam
the map freely in a medieval world that offers activities
ranging from hunting down bandits, to trading for profit
in the game's complex economic system, to becoming a
commander and taking part in the wars, with the ultimate
goal of becoming a great lord of the realm.
Calradia is a land at war, a land offering great riches
and even greater dangers to the adventurers and mercenaries
that flock to shed their blood on its soil.
With unerring courage and a strong sword, an unknown
stranger can make a name as a warrior. Raise a band
of hardened soldiers, become the lord of several towns
and castles, and perhaps one day you may wield the power
to depose kings and crown new ones at a whim.
Free-form sandbox gameplay. You are free to go anywhere
and do anything you choose in a world that has more
than a hundred unique locations, including villages,
castles and towns.
Unique horseback combat. You are able to attack your
enemies on your horse, whether you’re swinging
a sword, holding a lance or unleashing arrows.
Highly advanced, sophisticated and intuitive sword-fighting
Fight on horseback and on foot using an expansive variety
of medieval weapons, each with their own unique characteristics,
strengths and weaknesses.

of armies or an owner of villages, castles or towns.

in combat and in the strategic realm.
