Mount and Blade

A new game hit Google Play this afternoon, titled Mount & Blade.

The game will put you into the boots of many types of characters. You can choose to live your life as a king, knight, commander of armies, or other choices. The world you play in is an open world, free to roam as you so choose. The point is just pwn noobs and take over as much land as possible, using your superior armies and battle strategies.

Players can enter multiplayer battles with up to 64 players, featuring different gametypes – Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, Siege, and many more.

    You’re missing the point gentlemen. 1. Mobile games are easier and cost effective to make. 2. Nearly Everyone owns a gaming console I.E phone/tablet/Shield. 3. Soon every phone and tablet after 2014 will likely encorporate SoC’s like the K1 chip, delivering console quality graphics.

    Not to mention pc game streaming (The Grid) that Nvidia has… If I saw some one playing Borderlands 2 on their phone at a subway, I’ll buy that in a heartbeat.

    Exclusive to Tegra 4 devices.

    Apparently incompatible with my Tegra Note 7 (a Tegra 4 Device).

    • Zorbario

      Same with my Note 7. So that means it can be played on TWO devices…TOTAL. Annoyed.

  • Trevor

    This is obviously a game you buy simply for the sound effects.

  • TheDrizzle

    I can honestly say I’m not mad I don’t have a Tegra device, this game does not look appealing to me.

  • mustbepbs

    This looks like a mix between a 90s PC game and Dynasty Warriors. Except you aren’t flailing giant weapons around as a half naked asian woman with big knockers.

    -_- . . . when was the last time a flagship anything released with a tegra chip?

    • Raven

      Sorry, don’t know the exact whens, but the nVidia Shield and ASUS Transformer TF701 would probably be 2 good choices to play this on. There are also rumors that the Google Nexus 10 2 will be based on Tegra 4 instead of a Snapdragon.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        So currently 2 devices. Tegra exlusive games made sense when it looked like Nvidia was going to control the mobile market, then Qualcomm crushed those plans. Now Tegra exclusive games mean nothing since no flash ship is coming with Tegra. LG/Samsung/HTC/Motorola/Sony

          tegra note 7 from various brand. HP Slate 7 Extreme (based on TN7 design), HP Slate 8 Pro and HP Slatebook x2; that is from HP alone.

            Those are Flagships?

          • renz

            no but most people make it out as T4 was never in any device other than Shield or Asus Transformer.

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            You’re joking right? I’m talking about relevant Android brands that people actually buy

          • renz

            and you think no one buying those? when TN7 from EVGA first comes out on newegg it keeps selling out.

    • http://www.ytmnd.com MH

      Exactly. Nvidia should stick to GeForce PC cards.

    • Justen DeBowles

      You ever heard of the Tegra Note 7? because it seems to keep selling out whenever it’s in stock. It’s still very very relevant sir.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        LG/Samsung/HTC/Motorola/Sony <— If your chip isn't in these it doesn't matter.

        • Justen DeBowles

          That’s a pretty highly subjective statement that doesn’t matter considering Tegra4 is mainly in only tablets now, and the only tablet maker out of that list that sells is Samsung, which tends to bring it’s own SOC to the table. However ASUS, HP, and an increasing list of people seem to be releasing tabs with the T4. And there’s talks of google using it this year also.

          Seems like 4 of those 5 you listed don’t matter in the realm where the Tegra 4 actually gets used…

  • Menger40

    Holy crap, that’s amazing. I hope they port the expansions and drop the Tegra exclusivity, though.

  • PoisonApple31

    Are there even 64 people that have a Tegra-4 powered device?

    • Mark2134

      ZING!

  • Mark2134

    Tegra…you silly.
