Mount and Blade: With Fire and Sword: With Thread and Post
So a new Mount and Blade game is about to come out with the fairly weird name of.... Mount and Blade: With Fire and Sword
Don't be fooled by the name, which for some reason doubles as a lackluster list of the game's content. Don't be fooled by the graphics, which look like the game was made by two people. Which it was. If the previous games in the series are anything to go by. and they are, because I said so, this new installment is going to be an addictive barrel of fun.
These games have a fun and unique combat system, replayability in the same league of the civilisation games, and the ability to command your own army while at the same time being in the think of it yourself.
Unless you're me, in which case you let the army sort themselves out while you charge ahead and gut archers on a pike while giggling maniacally.
All this is well and good, but what does this new game have to offer? Good question, hypothetical person I just made up right now. I'll let the steam description speak for itself.
A storyline based on the cult novel, "With Fire and Sword", from Nobel-prize winning author Henry Sienkiewicz.
A new century of warfare that brings pistols, muskets, grenades, and other advanced weaponry to the battlefield.
Fully customizable armies; players can outfit their soldiers with each piece of weaponry & armor.
Additional quest types. More political intrigue with colorful factions. More adventure in a new land.
Multiple endings to increase re-playability.
Deeply researched historical component encompassing every aspect of the game's assets.
Ferocious new multiplayer action, bringing players the thrill of pitting old technology against the looming threat of firearms.
3 Main Story-driven quest-lines for the player to delve into once they've become known in a particular faction.
Additional quest types.

I'm psyched. You should be psyched. I should be downloading the game right now, but it doesn't seem to have unlocked yet despite the timer running out.
