Mount & Blade (2008)

About This Game

Calradia is a land at war, offering great riches and even greater dangers to adventurers and mercenaries that flock to shed their blood on its soil. With courage and a strong sword, an unknown stranger can make a name as a warrior.


Mount & Blade is a single-player, action-oriented role-playing game without any fantasy elements, which takes place in a medieval land named Calradia. The game features a sandbox gameplay style, in which there is no storyline present. The player is able to join one of the five battling factions, fight as a mercenary, assume the role of an outlaw, or take a neutral side.

At the start of the game, the player is offered a set of options to customize the character. The player answers a series of multiple-choice questions about the character’s past, including gender, which generate the character’s initial attributes. Then the player has the option to sculpt their character’s facial features.


  • Free-form sand-box gameplay. You are free to go anywhere in a world with more than a hundred unique locations including villages, castles and towns.
  • Groundbreaking horseback combat.
  • Highly advanced and intuitive sword-fighting systems.
  • Fight on horseback and foot using a vast variety of medieval weapons, each with unique characteristics.
  • You can be anything from a lonesome adventurer to a commander of armies or an owner of villages, castles or towns.
  • Sophisticated AI will challenge you in combat and in your strategic plans.
  • Freedom to interact with hundreds of characters.
