Yes, the siege bits look good. The board game seems pointless. I am not so concerned about the graphical updates, I am more interested to so if they have looked at the popular mods for warband. Vanilla M&B was quite poor really and needed a lot of modding to make it interesting, i.e. AI, trading, more storyline, etc. Will also be watching out as I would imagine this will be steam only for the first year or so.
