This new trailer shows what it’s like to repeal enemy invaders in Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord.

The game is being displayed at Gamescom right now; this is just a taste.

This is, the narrator points out, still a game in development (which would explain why crowds act so strangely), but you get a good sense of scale of destruction from this video.

Things escalate quickly as the invading forces start to climb the walls and wheel in a battering ram. In fact, the whole thing looks pretty intense.

Mount and Blade 2 offer several new features, and will be able to simulate some massive battles.

The game does not have a release date yet, but it will release on PC.
