Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord Gets Sandbox Mode and More With New Beta Update

Taleworlds released both a beta branch patch and a main branch update for its popular game Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord.

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord has been in early access for a few months and TaleWorlds Entertainment has been updating it very actively. Today, they released a new round of patches.

To be specific, the developer released the Beta e1.5.9 update and the Main e1.5.8 branch update.

The most relevant change is likely the sandbox mode in the beta branch that lets you play however you like without being burdened by the main questline.

  • Sandbox mode has been added to the game:
    • Weight and build sliders have been added to both sandbox and campaign mode.
    • Sandbox mode allows players to choose a starting age group.
    • Sandbox starting positions on the world map are determined by the selected character culture.

It was introduced in a video last month. While it was implemented via user-made mods before, it’s nice to have it officially implemented.

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is currently available in early access via Steam and Epic Games Store. If you’re not familiar with the game, you can check out the first video of the development series the secondthe thirdthe fourth, the fifth, and the sixth to get an idea of the game’s progress.
