Mount&Blade - Warband: Napoleonic Wars DLC Announced
 
I was just thinking I need to check on Taleworlds and this press release comes along, announcing a multiplayer-only DLC for M&B: Warband, titled Napoleonic Wars:

NEW YORK – March 30, 2012 – From occupying Calradia to the invasion of Russia, Warband fans will have a new war to look forward to this year. Paradox Interactive and Taleworlds Entertainment today announced the next DLC for popular action RPG Mount & Blade Warband. Napoleonic Wars is a multiplayer expansion pack that will take players back to the final years of Napoleon’s conquest in this massive update for the definitive open-world sandbox series.

Developed by Flying Squirrel Entertainment and Taleworlds Entertainment, Napoleonic Wars will support multiplayer battles of up to 250 soldiers and enables players the chance to create a character from 220 unique units available, all hailing from five different European nations. Fight battles with your tried and true sabre or utilize newly introduced artillery pieces such as cannons and rockets in this historically accurate and immersive 19th century experience like no other.

Players can partake in Napoleon’s conquest when Mount & Blade Warband: Napoleonic Wars launches later this spring.

Meh. I wish the developers would do more to expand the game itself instead of these different era DLC's, modders are already doing this kind of stuff.

I would like to see more distinct NPC interactions, more quests and just more stuff in the world in general.

I didn't like Fire & Sword, and I will not even try Napoleonic Wars (as it doesn't have a single player). I agree with you that what they should do is to expand the core game.

Mount & Blade Warband has huge potential, and I want an even larger world with more loot, more factions, story lines, more varied cities and castles… everything! It's one of my favourite games of all time already, but I just want more!
