Mount & Blade turned heads when it hit the PC in 2008 for its open-world action role playing. It all felt like an interactive version of Lord of the Rings fused with A Knight's Tale, but it was a very solitary experience. This year, the Mount & Blade: Warband expansion will bring a much-wanted multiplayer mode into the mix.

We're not talking a piffling number of players for this mode however. Up to 64 - count 'em, 64 - users can engage in combat on the same map, in team deathmatch style battles. If you thought some of the enemies in the single-player overworld were challenging enough, try taking on several human opponents on horseback and see how you feel then!

You also get to be something of a rogue commander yourself, as Mount & Blade: Warband adds the ability to form a team of followers who will do your bidding as you see fit. As you gain more loyal people, you end up creating a faction and can assign Lords, too.

Add to this an improvement in the game's graphics – we've come a long way since 2008 after all – some new environment interactivity that the advanced AI will react to, and an all-new marriage mode that lets you tie the knot medieval style, and you have a bit of a bumper expansion here.
