Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is the triumphant sequel to Mount & Blade: Warband, an RPG on a massive open-ended scale that will gallop onto PS5 and PS4 on 25th October.

In the Mount & Blade series, you guide your character from unknown wanderer to renowned warrior, to noble king or emperor, if the fancy takes you. Or you could make an economic killing, levelling up your merchantile skills and spending your time as a travelling merchant. Freedom is the name of the game, and there really is nothing else like it on consoles.

The large-scale battles, replete with massive sieges, are a true stand-out, and building up an army, managing your lands, and defending them from jealous neighbours never gets old.

RPG fans looking for something a little bit different are in for a treat with this one, as Bannerlord is the kind of game one can easily lose themselves in for hundreds, if not thousands of hours, if they so desire.
