Beta e1.6.0 Steam

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord just received its latest beta hotfix update. Beta e1.6.0 is now live on PC and addresses several bugs and crash issues. The game should be a little bit more stable now.

The hotfix made some gameplay changes as well. You can now turn off the auto recruitment feature on settlements by clicking on a checkbox. XP gained by donating items is now capped. Tier 1 items will only give 75 XP, Tier 2 150 XP, Tier 3 250 XP, and Tier 4 300 XP. The rest of the important changes are mentioned below in great detail.


  • Experienced Smith and Steel Maker 3 perks' secondary effects updated. (Experienced Smith - Successful crafting orders give +2 relationships with notables. Steel Maker 3 - Successful crafting orders give +4 relationship with lords). Research Point Experience needed for unlocking a new part formula has been updated.
  • The security value of a settlement is now affected by nearby hideouts. If the settlement has any bounded villages, the raids of those villages affect the security value (previously, raided villages affected the loyalty value). Also, the effect of Prosperity on the Security value is now listed as a tooltip.
  • Fixed a crash that affected saves with the "Rival Gang Moving In" issue active.
  • Fixed a crash that occurred after completing a noble's crafting order.
  • Fixed a crash that occurred after defeating and attempting to loot "Destroy Raiders" quest parties.
  • Fixed a crash that occurred after sieges that involved the player party as the besieger party.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the launcher from starting on the machines that have 2 core CPUs.
  • Fixed the never-ending war bug that involved "Destroy Raiders" issue parties without the player party in it.
  • Fixed a bug that created crafting orders for the main hero.
  • Fixed a bug that caused crafting piece selections to reset after crafting a weapon.
  • Fixed some text layout issues with Chinese translation.
  • Fixed a bug that made the main party unusable if the main hero died as a prisoner in disguise and the selected heir was in the main party.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the desert speed penalty from being applied.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented modded sounds from playing as 2D sound even though it was marked as 3D.

The complete patch notes are available on Steam as well.
