1. Does Warband require the original Mount & Blade to play?
No - Mount & Blade: Warband is the multiplayer sequel to Mount & Blade and does not require the first game to play.
2. When will the game be available?
The game is releasing in the US and on digital download on March 30. The UK release is scheduled for April 2. The French and German localized release will follow later in April.
3. Why can't I access the Warband support forum on the Paradox forum?
Mount & Blade: Warband has not been released yet. If you are currently playing a BETA version, you should post any support or feedback there. As soon as the game is released we will open up the support forum here as well.
4. Will I be able to register my copy of Warband to receive a forum icon on the Paradox forums?
For this product there are a lot of different versions out there and it would seem no one solution will work as different retailers treat codes and activation separately. What we can do is make sure this forum is completely open so you can post and see all threads, but we can't guarantee that you will be able to register you code here. Very sorry about that but the forum code should have zero implications on your ability to play the game. What you will be missing out on is the small icon under your avatar.
