Hopefully they patch that stuff into the game again. Is there any roadmap for the early access?
Calling it "cut" content in an early access game that has been out for 3 days is clickbaity as hell.
Yeah it's like they want to make it look like there is more content but really it's a lazy shortcut. They don't have to write a story or create an actual character this way lol. And now I have to worry about raising a family.Very interesting, especially the info on the companions.
Stuff like that makes me think they made a bad choice in wanting Bannerlord to be a 'generational' game where your character is supposed to have an heir the necessitates generating lords and companions. Who wants to play in a world with randomly generated NPCs when the custom made ones are so much more interesting. And it will be pretty easy to notice that generic companions use the same set of backstories as well.

Yep I wanted updated Warband. Now it's Crusader Cucks.It's biting off more than you can chew. Someone should have been there to say "No, this is too much and hurts the basic loop". We wanted Warband 2. We needed everything Warband did right, we don't have that. We didn't need new things that hurt what made Warband great. That's part of what we have.
No, which is the problem, it's extremely hard to know what's going to actually be in the game.Hopefully they patch that stuff into the game again. Is there any roadmap for the early access?
I elaborate on what that means in the first paragraph. It's cut out of the game, it is literally as cut content as cut content will be, even if it's going to be readded.I´m not sure "cut content" is the term you want to be using. I´d imagine a lot of this stuff is being worked on rather than being cut.
It was never a limit or consequence in previous Mount & Blade titles. As someone stated above, it's become more like Crusader Kings. Which is fine if you like that game. I'm here for an improved Warband. Warband never made me die of old age. It allows players to explore the world at their own pace, develop relationships with the persistent characters, and leaves a lot less to worry about.Why are people so anal about aging? Nothing bad about that.
As long as aging rate is a setting, you can play multi-generational games or not.
As for companion. As long as there are a few custom ones or at least player-made ones (WITH APPEARANCE TOO, DAMN YOU) I don't see much of an issue. Even the "generic" backstories are not an issue if they are tied with a quest or two.
The only difference then becomes the random appearance. Besides, as far as I can see, there's enough different backstories that you can't have them all at once in your party anyway, so it even works for multi-generation play.
