Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, the strategy role-playing game by TaleWorlds Entertainment, received a small update yesterday. Patch e1.8.1 brought bug fixes and improvements to both single-player and multiplayer. The MP portion did receive one new addition.

Custom Server Support has been enabled, and players can now set up their own matches, host events, or just mess around with their friends. The custom server will appear in the in-game server list just like any other server. This addition is only made to the Steam version of the game for now.

The patch also made some improvements to the performance. The loading speed of the ranked leaderboard is improved, and the performance of the lobby server and custom server list is also much better.

Check out the rest of the changes below.

  • Fixed a crash that occurred when starting the game launcher.
  • Fixed a crash that occurred when the player died during corporal punishment.
  • Fixed a bug that caused clans without settlements to over-value the worth of settlements during vassal defection calculations.
  • Fixed a bug that caused AI parties to hoard items causing them to slow down significantly due to overburdened and herding penalties.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the player's captain perks from being applied to the player's assigned formation during field and village battles.
  • Fixed a bug that caused cavalry AI to miss their targets when using melee weapons.
  • If a player clan-owned settlement's prison exceeds the prisoner size limit, the excess amount of prisoners will be sold to a ransom broker. The prisoners that will be sold are selected from the lowest tier troops with all proceeds going to the settlement. This only applies to non-hero prisoners.
  • Improved and optimized the lobby server and custom server list performance.
  • Improved the ranked leaderboard loading speed.
  • Fixed a bug that caused some ranks to be displayed incorrectly.
  • Fixed the “Is Official” filter typo on the server browser.

You can check out the complete patch notes via Steam for more information.
