In medieval times it was really important to have a child that can continue your legacy, which is possible in Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord.
Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is bringing all the Mount & Blade goodness that you would expect. That includes savagely pillaging villages, laying siege on enemy castles, and starting a family. Wait, starting a family? Yes, haven’t you heard? The latest installment in the medieval simulation franchise will let you leave a legacy behind. Since, you know, there is always a chance that a stray arrow kills you on the spot. And you want to have an heir, don’t you?
That’s right, the dynasty system in Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord lets you have relationships with NPCs, make advances in those relationships, and ultimately get kids. What’s even more impressive, your baby is going to take certain facial features from both the mother and the father, with a bit of randomness mixed in. When they grow up they inherit everything from their parents and continue their legacy.
The great thing about this dynasty system is that you can raise your kid and teach him or her all kinds of skills. Then, in the ill-fated event that your main character dies, your child can continue where you left off through them. This does mean that we would get an RPG that would span through multiple generations. Unfortunately, the devs didn’t say too much about this system, but they will say more in the future, so stay tuned!
