Last month The Banner Saga 2
released on Steam to some fanfare. The developer, Stoic, knew that another year long gap between the PC and console versions was unacceptable. Today they have announced The Banner Saga 2
will be out this July.
If you're new to the series, you should have no fear. Stoic took care to ensure new players could jump in here with playing the first game. Veterans will likewise be pleased to hear they can import their save to carry over all of their decisions. They'll also be pleased to hear Stoic has taken criticisms of the first game to heart - combat is improved, there are more characters to both play and interact with, and there are a host of new animations and cinematics.
If you'd like to hear more about the reception of the PC version, Stoic has put together a new accolades video to teach you what all the fuss is about.
Stoic also released an in memoriam trailer for the original game (The Banner Saga
) highlighting some of the difficult choices. Beware of spoilers to the first game
Moving forward, Stoic is proud to announce the hope to have The Banner Saga 3
ready for a simultaneous launch across all platforms. The Banner Saga 2
releases July 26th.
