Following the release of Persistent Kingdoms, an open-world Warband mod that was designed to improve the PW experience, our team decided to undertake the next project of bringing that type of a mod to Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord. With new designs in mind and the changed structure of our team, we've only thought it be appropriate that we deviate away from the "Persistent" name and focus on bringing a mod to life that will answer our wishes and the wishes of our community without the restrictions the "Persistent" name would put us under in terms of expectations.
We have the "Persistent" type of module in our minds but with many new design & gameplay changes. The increased moddability & modding tools will open up a world of possibilities for us which we intend to utilize as much as possible.
What is Kingdoms?
Kingdoms is an upcoming multiplayer mod for Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord. It is our intention to create a medieval open world with:
- Different classes that allow for further customization.
- Factions, wars and sieges.
- An intertwined economy that influences the turn of events in the world.
- A resource gathering & crafting system.
- An array of optional immersion systems to allow for extensive roleplay scenarios.

When will the mod be released?
There's no ETA and that entirely depends on our progress without the modding tools and when the modding tools will be released.
Sadly, we are still waiting for the modding tools and the custom servers to be released. As our mod is entirely based on multiplayer, we sadly cannot circumvent the fact that we require custom servers to build upon.
