Personally, I'll prefer PC. I'll expect that the gameplay will be as limited in comparison to its PC version, as any console game would be. Like comparing Halo on Xbox to Halo on PC.

That said, I think it would be a great way to spend free time while travelling. Conquer Calradia on your plane, bus, or train. Beats out a lot of other things certainly.

I realize that. I did read the thread. The problems I expect lie in the limits of a console style controller, which while sufficient for play from what I see in the video, will not be as smooth as PC.
This combined with the lack of mod support will mean that people will be playing M&B on PC when available, and on this when it is not.

I'm just saying that this thing is what it is, Native Mount & Blade Warband, controlled with sticks and buttons instead of keyboard and mouse. Console style controllers lack the fine grain control of a Mouse. But nobody promised that, so I guess I'm just restating the obvious.

This is cool though. Never really expected M&B to come this far.
I mean, I knew Mount & Blade had the potential to be done this way, and pioneer a genre. But just taking the forum as an example, the number of users has multiplied by ten since I joined it.

This release is another landmark in Taleworld's steady advance in the making of my favourite genre.

This is totally awesome!
And a valid excuse for one year of silence about Bannerlord.  :wink:

It's for all the android devices that with Tegra 4.
Is there any chance that other high-end SoCs will be supported in the future?
The Snapdragon 800 and Exynos 5 seem capable enough. Unless you rely on Tegra-specific optimizations of course.

Impressive!  :grin:

Though i'm curious how will the game adapt to the wicked world of the consoles considering it has really sticked to the keyboard and mouse.

I'm not even certain if i'm ready for this  :cry:.

Seriously?


Of course it will be for the PC. Its their target platform and always has been. This is more of a tech demo in a sense to show that the games CAN run on consoles without issues.


+ It just brings them in some additional income
