Versus Evil Community Director Lance James has announced, through Steam and Twitter, that The Banner Saga 2 will see the light of day on April 19th, 2016.
The sequel to the tactical RPG will feature improved combat and choices, comes packed with additional characters and races, and includes a soundtrack by Journey composer Austin Wintory. The events depicted in this episode will be set shortly after those of the original game and the choices you previously made will have an effect on the narration.
The Banner Saga 2 will be available on both Windows and OSX. A 10% discount will be applied to pre-orders up until the launch day and the game’s full price will be USD 19,99 instead of 24,99. Stoic and Versus Evil are also working on the XBOX ONE and PlayStation 4 versions of the game, although no official release date for those has been announced yet.
