Paradox Interactive have released the above video today of the upcoming Mount & Blade expansion 'Warband'. Followers of the game will know that the main feature of this expansion is the addition of multiplayer.

According to the press release the game will support "up to 32 players" but will be able to handle up to 64 where Mods are concerned. There's also a number of other great sounding additions, including a complete overhaul of the graphics, improved AI which will have a greater sense of morale and big improvements to the combat system.

There's no word yet on the release date yet, but sometime this summer wouldn't be a bad guess. The original is available from a variety of distributors, but if you're planning on purchasing it, best to get it from the official site - it's a lot cheaper.
