Mount&Blade - With Fire and Sword Interview @ RPS
Taleworlds' producer Mikail Yazbeck has been interviewed at Rock, Paper, Shotgun about M&B: With Fire and Sword.
RPS: Is this once again a primarily single-player experience? What multiplayer elements does it offer?
Yazbeck: The single-player campaign features an all new map, factions, weapons, armour, customizable army system, great new castle/town upgrades, and better balanced economy with more money making options. Oh and it features lengthy optional storyline quests for players craving a more purposeful experience.
The multiplayer has 15 new maps and a nifty new mode called “Captain Team Deathmatch” which gives each player a squad of bots (up to 24) to command. These bots are controlled in the same way as single-player and enable players to stage massive battles. I think people will end up doing a lot of historical re-enactments with this system. I’m hoping I can participate in some of them! If you’ve got any planned just PM Yazzy on the TaleWorlds forums!
