Mount & Blade Mod–Sword of Damocles: Warlords
Sword of Damocles: Warlords is more than just a mouthful of cool words–it’s a recent mod for the action-RPG Mount & Blade: Warband that’s being well-received by the game‘s community.
Presently still in its development phase, the mod improves upon the original gameplay of M&B:W, with a features list that includes a huge, new world map, twelve unique factions, new and improved textures, a more difficult economy, custom dialogue, new firearms, 96 towns, over 150 castles, and more than 300 villages.
Since release, the developer has provided continued support and bug fixes at a rapid-fire pace, only slowing down recently in preparation of his next big update.
In the works for “quite sometime,” the developer decided to hold off on releasing the mod until it was stable–a lesson far too many others need to learn.
A story will be implemented when the development of the mod’s multiplayer support has been completed, and work is underway to optimize the new, massive world map for lower-end computers.
Upcoming features include balance changes, over 100 new weapons, multiplayer support, and much, much more. You can find the complete details over at Mod DB, and you can join in on the discussion at the mod’s official forums.
Though the latest stable version of this mod is 2.4, you can try out the 2.5 beta, hosted here on GameFront.
