It's been a very long time coming, but Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord is nearly here. Almost exactly a decade after the release of the last game in the series, Bannerlord is rolling out in early access with plans for further expansions throughout 2020. TaleWorlds recently announced that the game would be coming earlier than initially planned, so when exactly does the game unlock?
