New Multiplayer DLC Brings Napoleonic Wars to Mount & Blade Warband

At first we weren’t sure if they were pulling our leg for April Fool’s day, but it seems they’re Mount and Blade goes Napoleonicserious about bringing Mount & Blade Warband forward in time with the latest DLC, and why not? The Napoleonic Wars are a favorite and rarely done in video games, much like the era that Mount & Blade itself covered. So to make it into a multiplayer DLC pack seems like a good plan. We’re sure it will still have the seriously gritty, real-world feel and difficulty.

From occupying Calradia to the invasion of Russia, Warband fans will have a new war to look forward to this year. Paradox Interactive and Taleworlds Entertainment today announced the next DLC for popular action RPG Mount & Blade Warband. Napoleonic Wars is a multiplayer expansion pack that will take players back to the final years of Napoleon’s conquest in this massive update for the definitive open-world sandbox series.

Developed by Flying Squirrel Entertainment and Taleworlds Entertainment, Napoleonic Wars will support multiplayer battles of up to 250 soldiers and enables players the chance to create a character from 220 unique units available, all hailing from five different European nations. Fight battles with your tried and true sabre or utilize newly introduced artillery pieces such as cannons and rockets in this historically accurate and immersive 19th century experience like no other.

Features

Accurate early 19th century weapons, uniforms and environments
Massive multiplayer battles with up to 250 players
5 nations with more than 220 unique units to choose from
A wide range of artillery pieces ranging from field cannons to mortars, capable of firing a variety of missiles such as canister, explosive shells and even rockets - all fully controllable by players
Finely crafted game balance insuring player skill is the hero of the battlefield, not the gun or the sword
Construct barricades, dig trenches, and rig explosives with the multi-purpose Engineer class
Special musician units with drums, fifes, bagpipes or trumpets, able to play historically accurate tunes; all recorded and played by award winning musicians
Lead squads of soldiers against each other in the new commander battle mode
More than 40 classical background music tracks

Players can partake in Napoleon’s conquest when Mount & Blade Warband: Napoleonic Wars launches later this spring.
