Atlas Novus is a multiplayer mod for Warband. It is focused on extending native Warband with balanced and interesting multiplayer maps. It has all the native Warband mp maps included, so you can play your old favorites too. It also has several gameplay improvements like a new multiplayer game mode.
Feel free to try out the maps and the new features and give comments or critique! Testing the more complex game modes like siege and ctf would be greatly appreciated.Download
