Developer Stoic and publisher Versus Evil have announced the release date for The Banner Saga 3
, the third and last installment of The Banner Saga series
, which mixes the turn-based strategy genre with RPG and an interactive story. Following the successful release of the first two titles, The Banner Saga 3
was successfully funded through Kickstarter in January 2017.
In The Banner Saga 3
, players can build their party from more than 40 unique characters, each with a unique set of abilities. The characters have different strengths and weaknesses, and building a cohesive party will be a key component.
Once gamers have set off on their adventure, they'll be able to make decisions that impact outcomes in the story. Stoic promises plenty of "forming relationships and making tough decisions."
In addition to the third game, a trilogy pack of the full saga has been announced and will be available at retail. For US$39.99, players can get The Banner Saga Trilogy: Bonus Edition
, which includes The Banner Saga
, The Banner Saga 2
and The Banner Saga 3
