Wondering if you can speed up time in Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord? Here’s what you need to know.
The short answer is yes, you can speed up time in Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, as long as you’re on the main map or in a city/settlement. But you should be very, very cautious about fast-forwarding on the map since enemies can catch up with you. You might not be able to think at double speed but the AI certainly can.
So, there are three ways to speed up time. For the safe option, go to a town/settlement and from the main select “Wait here for some time.” Time will move at double speed, though you’ll have to pay a daily gold free.
For the cheaper but more dangerous option, go to the main map and look for the pause, play and fast forward buttons at the bottom of the screen. On Xbox you’ll need to hit “B” to switch to cursor mode. Then, click on the fast forward button and you’re good to go. Time will be accelerated until a significant event happens.
Significant like what? Like unexpectedly getting into a fight, for example. A gang of bandits may decide you’re easy pickings and descend upon you while you’re sitting there watching day roll into night-time.
Or if you just want to get somewhere quickly, double click/double press and time will speed up until you get where you want to be. Again, this is not the same thing as increasing your party’s travel speed – everyone is accelerated, friends and enemies alike. If you want to make your party faster compared to other people, you’ll have to invest in some skill upgrades and the like.
