Mount and Blade is a 3D, open-ended, single-player, third- or first-person, computer role-playing game, created and distributed by the Turkish development house TaleWorlds. Mount and Blade has a medieval setting, without any fantasy elements. Mount and Blade is notable for its emphasis on realistic cavalry combat, which was common in the era, but is largely absent in most RPG titles.
Taleworlds sends out an invitation to anyone wanting to join the closed beta for M&B Warband

I love Mount and Blade and so do the staff of ModDB, we love it so much it took away the Editors Choice award for Best Indie at last years MOTY's. So here is a shameless plug for our friends over at Taleworlds, all about their upcoming expansion called Warband which if you have been living under a rock and know nothing about is a multiplayer expansion for the highly acclaimed Indie game. Anyway here is a qoute from the M&B forums.
We are getting closer to starting M&B Warband multiplayer beta tests and this is an invitation to all our community to apply as beta testers and join in the fun. All you need to do is fill out the application form at:
Since server capacity will be limited, we'll be able to accept a limited number of applicants to the beta tests. Our choice criteria will be as follows:
- Applicants who enter a valid serial key are much more likely to be selected than those who do not.
- As we open new test servers, we'll invite new beta testers whose locations are close to that server's location. For example, if we open a server in Germany, we'll invite testers who live in Europe.
- Other than that, selection will be random.
Thank you in advance to all those who will apply. Looking forward to duke it out with you guys on the beta servers...
Exciting stuff is it not? I'm super keen for something like this as the original game had me hooked for hours on end, bring on the multiplayer carnage!
