The Banner Saga, developed by ex-BioWare team members at Stoic, releases today. You can view the launch trailer below the break. You can also check out Dave’s piece on it here. The game, a huge funding success on Kickstarter, is a single player driven Viking saga, where a player’s choice in travel, conversation and combat determines the outcome of their own personal story as well as the survival of an entire civilization. It is now available for €22.99/£18.99/$19.99 through Steam, UPlay, GameFly, GameStop and Gamers Gate for PC and Mac. A digital Deluxe Edition is also available through select retailers for €27.99/£22.99 and includes the game and complete soundtrack.

    Just noticed Dave had a write up about this a few days ago– He seemed to enjoy it. OK. Dave enjoyed it, it’s made by ex-Bioware folks. Good recipe. I’m in.

    Looks great, but this type of combat is not for me. It seems turnbased?

    It is turnbased and you can see forthcoming turn order. The turns alternate evenly between your party and the enemy group, one character of yours followed by one of theirs. You can move and strike, once per turn. That continues until one enemy remains, at which point it becomes many of your moves to their one. The combat, though, is just half of the game.
