HOW TO START?
The story campaign in Mount and Blade 2 Bannerlord is the most complex gameplay mode. Therefore, it is worth checking all pages of our guide which were prepared especially for beginner players:
Custom battle mode enables you to take part in quick battles against a AI-controlled opponent. Before the clash, you decide the specifics - you can customize the amount of soldiers or the location of the battle. You can choose from a large field battle, a village assault and a siege. You can take command of any faction from Mount and Blade 2 Bannerlord and play several different characters
During multiplayer battles, there are 12 to 120 players can simultaneously participate in the multiplayer mode. Online battles take place in different modes - capture the flag, sieges, or the commander mode, in which each player leads a group of soldiers.
The multiplayer Captain mode somewhat resembles the standard battle in Mount and Blade 2 Bannerlord. Before the game starts, you choose which type of squad you want to take command of - infantry, ranged units or cavalry. The goal of your team is to capture and maintain control of special points on the map. In addition, you can give commands to your AI-controlled units at any time. Also, if you die, you become one of your soldiers.
The rules of Skirmish mode are the same as in Captain Mode - your team must take over and maintain control of various points available on the map. This time, you're not taking command of a squad or party, but you're controlling one soldier. Each soldier, depending on his armament, costs a certain number of points. These points are earned by killing opponents.
The gameplay of Siege mode is identical to that of Skirmish mode - each player plays as one of the available soldiers, and the main goal of the entire team is to capture and maintain control over strategic points located on the map. However, the difference is visible in the scale of the game - the match has a form of a siege and more than one hundred players participate in one match.
