Mount and Blade: Warband
5 Games Like Kingdom Come Deliverance
Mount and Blade is the expansion of developer Tale World’s popular RPG, available on consoles as a definitive edition since 2016. Just like Kingdom Come Deliverance, Mount and Blade is based in medieval Europe and makes use of a combat system grounded in realism, though from a third-person perspective. There isn’t quite the same level of nuance here, but it’s similarly tactical and requires players to balance defense and attack with different blocks and striking techniques – importantly, it’s hugely fun to play.
Coming straight from Kingdom Come Deliverance, you might find the graphics a little jarring, but there’s still a great attention to detail, and with arguably one the best melee combat systems ever realized, you’ll soon forget about its dated aesthetic. Notably, with the addition of multiplayer to the experience in Warband, there’s even more purpose to mastering this skill-based RPG. Despite its age, there’s still a passionate community of players duking it out in PvP and you’ll find servers still well-populated. There are also other Mount and Blade spin-offs such as the Napoleonic Wars if you’re interested in exploring other historical settings. Not to mention, the game’s full sequel title, Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord, is expected to release this year.
