Developer TaleWorlds Entertainment has recently deployed a stable update for Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord. But if you want the latest features, you can download the beta patch instead.

Beta Patch e1.6.5 features some useful improvements to the user interface. For one, two new options allow you to replace avatars and usernames with generic ones. These are Enable Generic Avatars and Enable Generic Names, both can be found in the settings menu.

Another notable UI improvement is that you can now see your teammates’ equipment over their characters in the character selection screen.

For single-player mode, all members and roles in the party role assignment are now shown separately. Minor improvements can also be expected in combat missions and the campaign map.

Those who want more freedom when targeting enemies will be stoked to find a new option. This option can disable the target lock feature.

The game is possibly more responsive now thanks to the improvements added to multi-core CPU usage and performance.
