Developer TaleWorlds Entertainment has unleashed a new update for Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord. Beta Patch v1.1.0 contains a lot of things - one of which is a new NPC that allows players to retire from their current campaign.

The NPC in question is known as the Hermit, found in a settlement situated near Lageta called “The Retreat.” Talking to the Hermit presents players with an option to retire from their current campaign by giving the command to one of their heirs or to conclude the journey entirely. This is a good feature, especially for sessions that have already lasted for a long time.

Players who have a hard time finding the Retreat must look for a giant mountain, with a clickable option to the side of it that allows them to enter.

The Trade Skills window has also received significant changes. For one, the order of perks has been rearranged to make it easier for players to discern which trade skills they can unlock early. Furthermore, skill descriptions have been revised for clarity. Players who do not know what a perk used to do will now more likely understand what it’s for.


  • Party Screen Troop Sorting
    • Players can now sort both rosters in the party screen by troop Type, Name, Count, and Tier.
    • The last selected sort type is remembered and applied on every party screen initialization.
    • By default, heroes are grouped together at the top of the roster.
    • This change also includes a troop-type rundown added to the party screen. Players now can see how many Infantry, Archers, Cavalry, and Horse Archers they have at a glance.
  • Implemented a Fog of War feature for heroes:
    • Players now need to meet heroes to unlock some of their critical information.
    • Skills, traits, family, and owned settlements information are hidden until you meet that hero.
    • This change affects tooltips, portraits, and information shown in the encyclopedia.
  • Added new tutorials to help new players:
    • Includes tutorials for upgrading troops, choosing perks, distributing attribute and focus points, getting companions, ransoming prisoners, civilian equipment, party speed, army cohesion, creating an army, order of battle, crafting and crafting orders, banner item in the inventory, crime, assigning roles in the clan screen, and raiding villages.
    • Also improved some of the existing tutorial trigger conditions and texts.
  • Added a tooltip to the disabled "leave kingdom" button in the Kingdom screen while in an army.
  • Improved rotation in the character creation and weapon smithy screens for gamepads.
  • Added the ability to open the encyclopedia from the upgrade and recruit pop-ups in the Party screen.
  • Added a new map event icon on settlement nameplates to show the sally out stage.

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord Beta Patch v1.1.0 is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
