Never played Mount and Blade and this is the cheapest one, is it fine to start with this? What are the differences between the games?
Should I buy this? (Steam Sale)
My favourite would be Warband. Mount and Blade Warband expanded on the original, has the same fictional medieval setting, world and factions but just more features such as being able to form your own faction to try to become the ruler of a nation/everything, get married, etc. Fire and Sword on the other hand has a setting more grounded in reality, with factions like Poland, Russia, Ukraine and a couple of others. Main difference in the game would be the time periods, as fire and sword includes basic firearms and grenades. Which can make it kind of frustrating, especially as the first one to dive into, as it can be a bit rough fighting against enemies with muskets who can cost you a battle with a single shot.
Personally I prefer the medieval setting of warband, but I haven't played enough of fire and sword to really go into depth on it. I own both, but the setting, firearms and grenades kind of put me off of Fire and Sword.
Damn, I bought Warband and Fire & Sword like 3 days ago... It was totally worth it though, so yes, you should buy some Mount & Blade. If anything I suggest you to buy Warband, even if I played very little of both, I can say that it feels like a overall better game so far.
Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword for £1.99.
Is this the version of the game that the cool kids are playing online now?
