The Mount & Blade series delivers great games that are complex and full of options, but these advantages are not the source of its popularity and longevity. The key to the success of this cycle proved to be its open approach to modifications. In the decade that has passed since the release of the first Mount & Blade production, thousands of alterations were created, more often than not turning the core version upside down and transforming its Medieval-like world into something completely different. On the technical side, the works of TaleWorlds are quite outdated which makes the fans of the series all the more eager to finally see the sequel entitled Bannerlord announced several years ago. Since it’s higly unlikely that the production will see the light of day in the nearest future, let's enjoy what we have at our disposal. That is why we have chosen the hottest modifications for the games released in the Mount & Blade series, which should provide hundreds of hours of fun. Mount & Blade veterans might find something they overlooked, while novice players have a chance to get to know the plethora of possibilities that the series provides.
Before we get to the point, I should mention that I focused on the mods for the most popular installments, namely Mount & Blade and Mount & Blade: Warband. They are presented in no particular order. If you can’t find one of your favorites In the article, don't hesitate to write about it in the comments section.
A word of explanation about the absent titles – I left out the famous mods Mount & Musket: Battalion and Brytenwalda, because both were released commercially as extensions for Mount & Blade: Warband, entitled, respectively, Napoleonic Wars and Viking Conquest. Neither will you find mods for Mount & Blade: With Fire and Sword, as this installment has met with a rather cold reception in the modding community.
