Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord just received a massive update for its beta version. The update touched everything including UI, animations, art, single-player, and multiplayer, which are core aspects of the game.

The Update Beta e1.5.9 fixes dozens of crash issues and some bugs related to the Save and Load feature. Some new things are added as well like the new clothing item "Decorated Thick" and a new cloak "Reinforced Neck Guard." They are improvements as well, including in the cloth physics of the Northern Warlord Helmet.

The walking-to-running transition of NPC characters is now much smoother. From now on, the animation will not reset whenever a character equips a new item.
