Screens and a Bonus Item for July's GWG Title the Banner Saga 2

By Kevin Tavore, 4 months ago
With its recent confirmation that it will be July's first Games with Gold title in just two days, The Banner Saga 2 has been on many people's minds. Today we get some more media for the game as well as details on an Xbox exclusive item.

The exclusive item is not one to be missed. Players will be able to equip the Tome of X. What does it do? We'll just have to play to find out I suppose. The item will be unlocked once players reach the appropriate level, whatever that may be.

Finally, Steve Escalante of developer Versus Evil assures consoles players that they'll be able to get in the story whether they played the first game or not: "Gamers new to the series can jump right into Banner Saga 2 without being penalized for not playing the first game. For those that have, their choices from the first game will carry over to the sequel.”

The Banner Saga 2 releases July 1st for Xbox One. It will be part of the Games with Gold program.
