Soulslike Mortal Shell Announced


Following in the footsteps of the Dark Souls-style “Soulslike” game genre, Cold Symmetry and Playstack have announced that their action RPG Mortal Shell is now in development.

In Mortal Shell, players will awaken in its twisted and shattered world as an empty vessel. Surrounded by the withering and rotting remains of humanity, players must traverse this landscape in the ongoing hunt for hidden sanctums of devout followers. As players carry out the bidding of the mysterious “Dark Father,” they will be able to conquer a number of formidable foes and harvest the sacred glands.

The ability to adopt different “Shells” to suit your playstyle (each with their own weapon upgrades and skills) will be available, along with a non-linear campaign and deliberate combat that utilizes parries and counterblows.

Learn more with the trailer below:

Mortal Shell – Announcement Trailer

Originally known by the title “Dungeonhaven,” the studio behind Mortal Shell is made up of a core team of 15 people, many of which have worked on AAA titles.

Cold Symmetry’s Andrew McLennan-Murray, Anton Gonzalez, and Vitaly Bulgarov released a joint statement about their work on the title:

“For a small team like ours, developing this title in many ways felt like crossing an ocean on a paddle board. To finally announce Mortal Shell is one of the most exciting and terrifying experiences we’ve had in our lifetimes. The last two years have been a time of non-stop growth, full of shocking revelations of sheer complexity that goes into creating a video game that you, yourself, would really enjoy playing.”

The game will come out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in Q3 2020. For those who would like a taste of things to come, a limited closed beta will be available – all those interested can learn more on the official site here.

How To Make Peace In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

How To Make Peace In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord
You will go to war at some point, it is inevitable. This guide explains How To Make Peace In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord as the user-interface doesn’t seem to support the ability to declare war or sign a peace agreement during this period of Early Access.

Whether you own a kingdom or join another, you will eventually be thrown into war. It’s also part of the main quest line. Later in the game, after you have found all the Nobles and reunited the Dragon Banner, you will be battling against an ever-growing conspiracy. At this point, several Empire factions will do their best to take you down. Fighting them face on is a difficult and expensive challenge, even if you know all the money making tricks. An easier, cheaper and safer alternative is to beat them with love. Or peace, peace is more accurate.

How To Make Peace In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

If you have already checked out the Kingdom interface, you will see that you can both declare war and barter for peace. However, both of these functions do not appear to be working correctly yet as both are constantly blacked out. However, there is still a way to discuss peace with your enemies. All you have to do is locate an enemy general out in the field. Approach their party and speak with them.

Ask them to discuss something else and you have the option of bartering for peace. It’s usually only a few thousand, which is much cheaper than fighting it out. Alternatively, you can convince them to betray their original cause and join your Kingdom.

Mount & Blade II Bannerlord Conspiracy Quest Guide

Mount & Blade II Bannerlord Conspiracy Quest Guide
This quest is a mess. This Mount & Blade II Bannerlord Conspiracy Quest Guide will walk you through the little information we have on this quest, Istiana’s Plan, that sees the disgruntled soldier attempt to overthrow your thrown through conspiracy. Although I am unable to verify, I would assume that Arzagos has a similar quest if you opt to side with Istiana instead.

This is part of the main story quest. At this point, I can only assume it’s party of the limited content Early Access package. I do not believe the quest is working as intended. As you continue through your adventure you will often get prompts saying the quest has failed, progressed, and returned. This represents the conspiracy building up over time. You can check the total of the conspiracy on the quest page.

Mount & Blade II Bannerlord Conspiracy Quest Guide

To the best of my knowledge, you are unable to stop the conspiracy in its infancy. I attempted to track down and kill Istiana but she is invincible and takes no damage. So, the only logical alternative, is to wait. As the Conspiracy continues to build it will eventually encourage a war. This may differ depending on your social status, your allies, your locations, but for me it caused a war with Western, Northern, and Southern Empire factions. At this point, new quest objectives appear that do actually function.

You will be told to either eliminate each of the enemies that have declared war on you, or battle them into signing a peace agreement. The latter is actually simple, it’s very easy to make peace in Bannerlord, but ultimately the choice is yours. I will update this guide should anything else arise, I just wanted to make sure people stopped wasting time trying to cancel the conspiracy early. Just wait until around the 1400 Conspiracy marker, that’s when the war happens.

Where To Find Istiana & Arzagos In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

Where To Find Istiana & Arzagos In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord
These two are vital for the Dragon Banner quest to get your own Kingdom. In this guide we explain Where To Find Istiana & Azragor In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord as some players seem to be struggling, running around town for hours trying to find their location.

Both Istiana & Arzagos are part of the main quest line. When you reach the latter stages of the quest line you can reunite the Dragon Banner and eventually form your own kingdom. There’s a few quests between discovering the two and founding your own land but they are pretty simple. Tracking down some bandits, destroying some camps, familiar activities you’ve been doing throughout the adventure.

Where To Find Istiana & Arzagos In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

In your quest log the game tells you where to find both of them, such as Istiana being in Epicrotea. However, a lot of players struggled to find her there. Choosing the explore town option, running around for ages holding the alt key hoping to see a name pop up. Well, unfortunately that’s not going to work.

This is true for both Istiana & Arzagos. Although technically they are both in the towns the game says they are in, they are not actually physically in the town. You cannot see them if you run around exploring, they will not appear. This is because both of them are in their own houses. When you reach the town look at the top of the screen where it shows you the portraits of all of the people in that town.

If there are enough to fill the first row, there is another arrow that loads the next row. Here you will find both Istiana & Arzagos in their respective towns. You just scroll to the right, click the portrait and select to talk with them.

How To Sell Workshops In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord
Owning a Workshop is a great way to earn money but sometimes they do poor. This guide on How To Sell Workshops In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord walks you through the process of either selling an under-performing Workshop or switching it to another part of production.

A lot of the mechanics surrounding Workshops are still unknown. One Smithy can be making 200 a day, another can be -300. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of sense to it. Even when you construct a Workshop in a region with supporting materials, it can be hit and miss. As such, it’s important that you make sure your Workshops are profitable. If one is constantly making you a loss or you want to try switching it to another production, there’s a very fast and easy way.

How To Sell Workshops In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

The long way involves visiting the Workshop again. Speaking with a Worker and choosing to either sell the Workshop or change its production. This involves several loading screens and a lot of walking. Thankfully however, there is another method that is much quicker.

Press L to open the Clan menu. At the top of the screen are several new options. Select the Other tab. This tab shows all of the Workshops you currently own as well as information on how much money they are making. If you click any one of your Workshops you will get a bigger breakdown including the daily wage and the capital. At the bottom of this page there are two other options. Sell and Change Production.

This is how you sell your Workshops quickly. If you highlight the sell option, you can see how much money you will receive for selling it. Prior to the hotfix patch it was about 10-15k but now, I have one that I can sell for nearly 300k.

How To Increase Clan Tier In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

How To Increase Clan Tier In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord
Increasing your Clan Tier has many benefits. This guide on How To Increase Clan Tier In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord walks you through the Clan Tier system including details on how to reach the next levels and the activities that reward Renown.

You clan information is an important part of maintaining a successful campaign in Bannerlord. It shows you your current financial situation, your income and expenses, as well as details on your family and companions. Clan Tier specifically plays a vital role as it directly improves your Party Size while also allowing you to recruit more companions.

How To Increase Clan Tier In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

Raising your Clan Tier is a simple but very long process. It requires Renown, which you receive when you complete battles. As some perspective, to reach Clan Tier 4, you require 900 Renown. A battle against a group of 30 Looters provides around 1 Renown. It’s a very long process.

You can speed up Clan Tier leveling slightly, by focusing on more prestigious battles. Fighting much larger armies, especially those with veteran generals of the enemy, provides a much bigger boost in Renown if you are victorious. Likewise, attacking strongholds and castles will reward you with a lot more renown that taking down villagers and hamlets.

How To Increase Party Size Even Further In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

How To Increase Party Size Even Further In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord
Party Size is vital in Bannerlord. This guide on How To Increase Party Size Even Further In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord builds on our previous new player guide with newly discovered options and leveling features that can make your Party Size even bigger, into the 200s.

In our first Party Size guide we went over the basics of increasing your party size. Leveling the Quartermaster aspect of the Steward skill tree is the single and most important influence on your Party Size limit. It’s one of the easiest skills to level requiring only that you keep your army well fed with a large variety of different consumable food types. However, with a bit more experience under our belt, we’ve found two other ways of drastically increasing the size of your Party Limit.

How To Increase Party Size Even Further In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

Firstly, your Clan rank. Press L to open the Clan screen and then look in the upper right corner. This is your Clan Tier. Each Tier gives you more Party Size limit. For example, as a Tier 3 clan, I get an additional +15 Party Size, allowing me to add a further 15 soldiers to my party limit. This is constantly growing as your Clan Tier gets higher. To increase your Clan Tier you need Renown, lots of Renown.

Now, if you have managed to unlock your own Kingdom, there is another single bonus that is huge. Once you have your own Kingdom do some fighting and earn some Influence. You need to get 50 Influence.

Then open the Kingdom menu with K and select the Policies tab. There is a Policy here called Royal Guard. Among other things, Royal Guard increases your party by a huge 80. 80 additional soldiers for your party size.

How To Get Wood & Charcoal In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord
Struggling to find ingredients for Smithing? This guide on How To Get Wood & Charcoal In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord tells you how to find two of the most basic ingredients used for Smelting and other recipes as a way of leveling your skills up fast.

The item you need is Hardwood. It’s a common resource. You can buy it from towns and sometimes raid it from enemies or Caravans. It’s relatively cheap and is the primary method of obtaining Charcoal. When you visit a town select the trade option then buy the Hardwood. It costs 2 Hardwood to make 1 Charcoal.

How To Get Wood & Charcoal In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

How To Get Wood & Charcoal
So, as an example, let’s say you’ve purchased two Hardwood from a town. Then you want to go to the Smithy and make 1 Charcoal in the Refine menu. After you have your one charcoal, switch to the smelting tab. Here you will see a list of all the weapons and equipment you’re carrying that can be smelted.

As you can see above, the Narrow Long Head Eastern Spear I have can be Smelted down. It gives me Wrought Iron, Iron, and 4 Hardwood. It only cost me two Hardwood to get the Charcoal and Smelt this down, giving me an additional two Hardwood alongside the other ingredients.

Using this method, Smelting items that always give you 3+ Hardwood, ensures you will have a regular supply of Hardwood to get the Charcoal to raise your Smithing level without having to spend more on resources.

This is also a great way of earning money fast in Bannerlord. Smelting cheap weapons can wield more valuable materials. For example, a spear that sells for 100 gives 3 Iron Bars when dismantled, selling for 300 total. Be sure to look further into Smelting if you want some extra cash.

How To Make Money In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

How To Make Money In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord
Want to make some Denar fast? This guide on How To Make Money In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord will walk you through the different methods of earning money quickly that we have used on our rise to dominating the lands with force and finance.

Let’s get the bad news out of the way first. There is no get rich quick approach in Bannerlord. There were some issues that impacted some players involving certain workshops and income, but those have been addressed. The game is designed to be played for the long haul, as such the initial efforts to earning money are difficult by design. However, after some patience and investing some time in the appropriate fields, it snowballs later into earning much more money, much quicker.

How To Make Money In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

Your primary expenses, especially at the start of the game, are managing your party. Each soldier costs money to maintain, the higher the rank, the more expensive the fee. Make sure to keep an eye on your Expected Change to ensure you have the money spare before upgrading soldiers in large quantities. Below is a breakdown of the different activities we found to be profitable in various stages of the game. The latter suggestions are not newbie friendly, so focus on the earlier suggestions first.

Make Friends Or Enemies
I first began my play through with the intention of just doing my own thing. I didn’t want to start randomly attacking villages and towns but one way or another, you’ll need to get aggressive. You can either join another Kingdom and become a vassal or start attacking things solo. Either way, if you want to make money, you will need someone to attack

Attacking & Working With Caravans
Caravans are well guarded so you will need some strong troops, but the numbers are usually quite low. They often drop very valuable resources that can be sold for good Denar. You can also speak with the Caravan leaders to find out about the current state of markets. This adds additional information to certain resources. For example, the Caravan leader may tell you that Wine is being sold in another location for a lot of profit. You can then use this information to buy low and sell high. It’s a viable option but it doesn’t make a ton of cash. Destroying the Caravan usually offers more profit.

Smithing
Smithing can be a slow task but it’s profitable. Almost every weapon you find (the cheap ones) can be smelted into materials. The materials are always worth more than the sword, obviously don’t smelt swords that sell for thousands.

Taking Settlements
Owning a settlement is a fantastic way of increasing your daily income but it’s not easy. Most castles and large towns are guarded by 200-500+ troops, making it a difficult task to siege one without a large army. If you pay close attention, when you pass castles and large towns, just check to see what the garrison numbers are. Sometimes you can get lucky and take a town with little resistance. Once you own a settlement, make sure the surrounding villages remain safe and taxes will trickle in over time.

Setting Up Caravans
