5 Games Like Mount & Blade

Sid Meier's Pirates!


1. Pirates!

One of the most successful games like Mount & Blade

Pirates! is an action/adventure, strategy game created by Sid Meier and developed by MicroProse in 1987. You might be wondering why a game so old is included in this list, but this is not a mistake. If you haven't played this game yet, you are missing out on one of the best video games of all time.

Sid Meier's Pirates! was so ahead of its time. It has revolutionized the gaming industry and served as an inspiration to future games such as Civilization, Railroad Tycoon and The Sims. The game is set in an open world, and it also features an open-ended gameplay. There are a variety of activities in which you may choose to engage upon including attacking enemy ships, rescuing family members and increasing wealth through trade. The game concludes when you opt to retire, at which point you are given a position, ranging from beggar to King's adviser, depending on your accomplishments in the game.

Pirates! is an immensely successful and popular game. Several remakes have been created and you can now play the game on your PC, Xbox, Wii, PSP, iPad and Windows Phone 7.

2. Age of Pirates 2: City of Abandoned Ships


An RPG similar to Mount & Blade

Age of Pirates 2: City of Abandoned Ships is a role-playing game developed by Akella. It is the direct sequel to Age of Pirates: Caribbean Tales, and continues to take you on an endless journey to the seas. This time, though, you are not restricted to a storyline, as was the case in the previous game. You can create your own story and live your life on the sea as you wish.

You play the game as one of three characters: a merchant, corsair or an adventurer. Each character has his own unique set of stats, which is called the P.I.R.A.T.E.S system. This new system affects many gameplay elements, such as how much health you have, how much items you can carry and even influences ship behavior as well. Age of Pirates 2 also features a more extensive and complex fight and trade system. One downfall of the game is its lack of any kind of tutorial. This will make your start a little shaky, but you will get a firm grip of how things work as you play the game further.

If you're a fan of sea battles, then Age of Pirates 2 is the perfect game for you. Explore new lands, build your crew and establish your reputation as the best captain in the Caribbean.

3. War of the Roses


A third-person shooter game like Mount & Blade

War of the Roses is an action video game developed by Fatshark. The game draws inspiration from the Wars of the Roses, a series of dynastic wars that devastated England during the 15th century.

In this game, you take control of a soldier fighting for either the House of Lancaster or the House of York. You begin the game as a footman, but you can eventually unlock a pre-made Guardsman, longbowman and footknight. Three game modes are available: Team Deathmatch, Conquest, and Pitched Battle. Conquest involves conquering a series of checkpoints, which your team must unlock in the proper sequence. Pitched battle pits two teams in a battle arena and the team with the last man standing wins. One negative aspect of the game which many critics point out is the steep learning curve. This is mainly because of the game being skill dependent.

War of the Roses is a highly enjoyable third person shooter. The medieval setting is beautifully designed. This is also recommended for strategy game fans, as this game rewards teamwork.

4. X3: Terran Conflict


A game like Mount & Blade in sci-fi setting

Combat in this game can range from small fights to large fleet battles involving hundreds of ships.

        To me the point of M&B is combining rts,rpg and action.

        You get to command many warriors, but also have leveling and some other rpg elements and of course you can help your soliders by joining the fight yourself, i also love that its not fantasy. now tell me wtf does skyrim have to do with M&B?

        Thank you for the suggestions. That Sid Meier's Pirates actually came out in 2004 its a modern rework. The original was with little block pixels.

        I don't know about the others but War of the Roses and Skyrim have nothing to do with M&B. I really doubt X has anything to do either. Try Conquest of Elysium 3.
