Mount & Blade Warband is not a beautiful game. Its graphicsability is low. It is, to borrow from the teachings of Daphne & Celeste, without an alibi. On the plus side, it can run on pretty much any recent system without dropping to a single-digit FPS, or refusing to load faces (opens in new tab). So, you know, there's that.
Despite its looks, it's an absolutely brilliant RPG-cum-strategy—filled with a multitude of freeform, sandbox options. And now it's getting a Viking expansion (opens in new tab), courtesy of the creators of the popular Brytenwalda mod.
Here, then, is a new trailer for that expansion, which is due out "soon". Check that sweet boat tech!
