The Banner Saga is just over a month from release, and pre-orders begin today. Stoic definitely wants you to grab their debut title, so they've tossed in some pre-order bonuses to go with, included in the "Insane Viking Pack."
The pre-order pack throws in a number of in-game content, exclusive tracks from the score, and a decent 20% discount. Pretty nice perks considering all you have to do is "reserve" a copy before the game's January release.
The discount marks Banner Saga's price down from $24.99 to $19.99 on Steam. As for the exclusive game content, pre-order bonuses include the following:
- Exclusive playable character Tryggvi, "renowned trouble maker skilled in combat and deadly with a spear"
- Pearl Necklace granting 10% chance for double damage in combat
Additionally, the music tracks are from the game's original score, composed by Grammy-nominated composter Austin Wintory. Oh, but if you'd rather see a trailer, Stoic has that too.
The Banner Saga will be released on January 14, 2014 to PC, Mac and Linux.
