Mount & Blade: With Fire and Sword Released Today

on May 3, 2011 5:00 PM

Mount & Blade always seemed like one of those really awesome hidden gems that I just haven’t had the time to play, which is pretty unfortunate, because it looks to have an insane amount of depth. The With Fire and Sword

The characters and storyline are taken directly from Nobel-prize winner Henryk Sienkiewicz’s historical novel, With Fire and Sword, so the premise itself seems pretty interesting. The player is put in the midst of five different factions who are all major players vying for control of Europe.

Firearms such as pistols, muskets, rifles, have been added to the player’s aresenal as well as a new single-player campaign, 15 new mutliplayer maps and a mutliplayer mode called Captain Team Deathmatch and multiple endings for high replay value.

You can download the demo off Fileplanet and be sure to check out the launch trailer below.

As a result, he can often be found lifting things, fighting for justice, and being a crazy outlaw journalist on the edge who doesn't play by the rules. When he’s not writing about, reviewing, or playing games, music, and occasionally writing well-paying profiles of businessman, Daniel thinks about what exactly he'll end u doing with his life post-graduation. Daniel plans on either going to graduate school for an MFA, or more realistically, getting a day job, which he hopes is somehow involved in the gaming, comic book, or film industries.
