Warband's Overhaul Patch

By Published July 23, 2010 at 10:30 am

TaleWorlds released a new update for Mount & Blade: Warband today, adding a duel mode due to high demand. The user base has been duelling based purely on an 'honor system,' - if two people are in a fight, don't go kill them both (tempting as it may be), but the new patch implements pure 1v1 duels without interruption. Duel mode supports up to 64 players.

In the press release, TaleWorlds / Paradox made a reference to a paramount point in PC DLC, almost with a touch of sarcasm, "In time honored DLC fashion, Mount & Blade: Warband is putting new armor on old horses at a cost of zero denars. Mount up with two newly modeled horse armors, one available for the Sarranids and another for the Vaegir/Khergit factions."

 

They also announced a new server setting, allowing admins to restrict ranged weapons. Nord on Nord, anyone? Or perhaps I should say... Nordal Kombat!!

Warband is available on all major distribution channels, and of course several free copies are available in our big giveaway.

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
