  1. The Banner Saga released in 2014 to positive critical response and fan adoration. Fans will have the chance to showcase their love of the tactical RPG with Banner Saga-themed IndieBox, which will be The Definitive Physical Edition of the first game. This special collector's edition, pictured in the header above, includes the disc and case, soundtrack, instruction manual, and a 6 1/2" bust of Ubin. IndieBox is a monthly subscription service that focuses on, as the name would suggest, indie titles. Many of the games IndieBox partners with only received digital releases, so the company gives fans a chance at obtaining physical copies and merchandise of their favorite download-only titles. If you're itching for more Banner Saga, Stoic announced plans for a third installment to round out the trilogy. The Banner Saga 3's ETA is December 2018. Check out the game's Kickstarter video below. The Banner Saga Definitive Physical Edition IndieBox is available from June 20 to July 18. You can grab yours by visiting the IndieBox site. View full article

  3. Stoic Games, the team of ex-BioWare developers who crafted 2014's The Banner Saga, have returned to Kickstarter to fund the final installment in their turn-based tactical trilogy. The original Banner Saga was initially funded via a highly successful Kickstarter campaign back in 2012 that raised a whopping $700,000 - seven times more than the original goal of $100,000. That surplus of funds allowed Stoic to push the initial game much farther than they had originally envisioned and also develop the sequel, Banner Saga 2. It might seem odd that Stoic has returned to crowdfund their third game, but the studio has an answer for those scratching their heads. "We’re still solidly indie," says the studio, "[We're] not accepting any investor funding, so Kickstarter is still a great way to rally the community to show support for the game, while letting us call the shots on the games we make. We’re paying for most of the game ourselves, but the funds we’re asking for will enable us to take the time we need and bring the band back together one more time!" Stoic seeks to raise $200,000 for The Banner Saga. Given the success of the first campaign and how praise enjoyed by the previous two Banner Saga games, it is likely that the campaign will exceed $200,000 easily. Over $100,000 had been raised less than 24 hours after launching its campaign. No stretch goals have been announced yet. The Banner Saga 3 will see a number of the contributors that helped bring the previous games alive. Austin Wintory, one of the best composers working in games today, will be lending his talent to the series once again. The animation studio responsible for the trilogy's breathtaking hand-drawn aesthetic, Powerhouse Animation, will supposedly return as well. Stoic has also tapped into Icelandic vocal recording outfit Studio Syrland to capture the essence of the Norse-Viking vibe that The Banner Saga taps into. The Banner Saga series focuses on a story about the end of the world from the perspective of those who live in it. It's a tale of survival against a hostile world full of environmental dangers and the unsavory attentions of predatory enemies. Obscure occult powers, monstrous creatures, and dead gods litter a world which trembles and cracks at their passing. Tough decisions await players as they guild a growing (or shrinking) band of survivors through the perils of a dying planet in an almost Oregon Trail-like fashion. Those choices can change the fate of who lives and dies on the long journey to what will hopefully be safety. Life or death struggles over supplies might break out among the survivors or villainous forces could attack, the player must always e ready to step up and fight. A brutal, unique take on turn-based combat makes up the meat of the Banner Saga series. Equal parts Fire Emblem and XCOM, players must use the unique abilities of their companions to fend off death for just one or two more days. Always one or two more days. Those who back The Banner Saga 3 will have the option of purchasing both The Banner Saga 1 and 2 for $20 on top of their original pledge once the campaign closes. View full article

  5. Stoic Games has announced that The Banner Saga 2 will be coming to PC in April. The turn-based strategy title continues the tale told in the previous game of refugees fleeing from the apocalypse and the armies it has displaced. Players should expect to make hard choices that will determine the future survival of the people under their command. Following the catastrophe at the end of the first game, there should be plenty of turmoil in which difficult decisions will have to be made. The Banner Saga 2 launches on April 19, a few days before PAX East. Those who are interested in the lore and world of The Banner Saga and who are planning on attending the show can check out their booth and panel for prizes and giveaways. Additionally, a limited edition book that explores the game world, The Gift of Hadrborg by James Fadeley, will be sold at the show with a special signing event on April 23. I know I'm definitely super excited to be seeing The Banner Saga 2 so soon after the 2014 release of the first game.

  7. Following an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign (which raised over seven times what developer Stoic Games asked for) and several months of development, the gorgeously animated The Banner Saga is finally coming to PC and Mac. The meat of The Banner Saga is that of a turn-based strategy game set in a world of Norse mythology, giants, and sorcery. However, the single-player campaign will be similar to a, quoting from Rock, Paper, Shotgun, "ultra high-stakes game of Oregon Trail," with every step in the overworld potentially bringing a new event or enemy encounter for players to deal with and live with the repercussions. After receiving their Kickstarter funds, Stoic Games released a free multiplayer version of their game that showcased the vibrant visuals of the full game as well as the gameplay in a PvP setting. This trial version/demo was called The Banner Saga: Factions and can be downloaded and played here. Following the release of Factions, the studio went quiet, until now. The Banner Saga's first installment will release on PC and Mac on January 14, 2014. To hammer that point home, Stoic has released a ned trailer heralding their game's impending release, which you can view below. View full article
