Paradox parts ways with Mount & Blade, hands out free Wizard Wars

Paradox parts ways with Mount & Blade, hands out free Wizard Wars
mount and blade 2 (7)

Riding into the sunset, and all that.

Parting is such sweet sorrow, and Paradox and have now split, with going on to develop Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord on their own.

The news comes from a post on the Mount & Blade sub-forum over on the Paradox forums (via The Escapist). “As of January 31st at 00:00 (UTC -08:00) will be handing over the reins for Mount and Blade back to the developer, TaleWorlds,” it reads. “It’s been five and a half years since Mount and Blade was released, five and a half years of sieges, tournaments and pitched open-field battles, and of course, the odd expansion or two!”

“We feel honoured to have fought beside you and at our final parting of ways would bid our farewells with a gift which has automatically been added to your Steam library.”

What’s that gift? It’s an Early Access copy of Magicka: Wizard Wars, which would normally be £8.99 on Steam. Not bad at all. It’s not quite clear which version of Mount & Blade you need to have on Steam to get this (Mount & Blade? Mount & Blade: Warband? Mount & Blade: With Fire and Sword?) but it’s a rather lovely little gesture.
