Today, The Banner Saga is officially out for the masses. Yes, this Kickstarter-funded game has finally arrived in full, treating strategy lovers to a fantastical world of viking giants, terrifying dredge, and a sun that doesn't move.
Appearing on Kickstarter in 2012, The Banner Saga is a strategy RPG and the first game from Stoic Studio, a company formed by three former BioWare developers. Before long, the project raised more than its $700,000 goal.
You can check out the new launch trailer as well, which features a little bit of the story and offers glimpses of combat and characters.
Additionally, we'll be streaming a playthrough of the game from beginning to end, for those who are curious to see it in action and have yet to get their hands on a copy. Well, not at once, given that the game stretches well beyond ten hours. As for anyone who pre-ordered on Steam or backed the Kickstarter, you should already have a copy of the game available.
Happy killing-things. Be sure to read our in-depth preview, as well.
