Mount&Blade - With Fire and Sword Preview, Screens

by Dhruin, 2011-01-26 21:26:40

There's a preview of Mount & Blade: With Fire and Sword at The Escapist, although it appears based on available information rather than hands-on:

While some (myself included) might miss the fictional setting of Calradia, it seems that the community responds the most to the real-world accuracy of Warband. To that end, Yazbeck is busy adding features to the strategic level of play that will make With Fire and Sword seem more realistic. Instead of villages and towns just being places you go to "beg for babies" as what Yazbeck called recruiting soldiers, there will be structures you can build such as universities, smithies and even banks. Banks will be able to issue loans, which will come in handy for those who play the game as a complex economic sim. Don't welch on those loans though, the banks will post bounties on the heads of people who don't pay them back.

You can also grab some screens at Worthplaying and for those into Kinect, here's an article on playing Mount & Blade with motion control and head tracking.
