Steam is throwing a bit of a Mount&Blade promotion this weekend, with a pre-order discount, dramatic sale, and Team Fortress 2 tie-in items.

To kick things off, the upcoming sequel, Mount&Blade: With Fire and Sword, is 10 percent off over the weekend.

The new title takes the series into the post-medieval era, and if you put in your oder before May 3, you’ll be rewarded with two hats for Team Fortress 2 – the Hetman’s Headpiece for the Engineer, and the Spy’s Janissary Ketche.

The original game is on sale for $3.99, and the multiplayer-friendly spin-off-slash-expansion Warband is down to $5.99.

The Mount&Blade series is developed by indie studio TaleWorlds, and is a kind of open-ended simulation thing, with action combat as well as RPG elements.

Thanks, Evil Avatar.
