Critically Acclaimed Indie Tactical RPG Gets Physical
Independent developer Stoic and games publisher Versus Evil, in partnership with Sold Out Sales & Marketing Limited, announced that indie mega hit The Banner Saga is available at retail stores in Europe, Australia and New Zealand today.
The Viking-themed tactical role playing game – which has received and been nominated for several awards and praise for its story, art design and gameplay mechanics – is now available in physical form for the first time ever. This special Collector’s Edition offers fans a permanent collection of one of this year’s best indie games and includes the core game along with the ‘Insane Viking Pack’ digital content and Official Soundtrack which is composed by the BAFTA award winning, Austin Wintory. The “Insane Viking Pack” is currently only available as part of The Banner Saga: The Collector’s Edition.
Boasting a style inspired by classic animation films of yesteryear, with stunning hand-drawn visuals capturing a merciless Nordic era, The Banner Saga is a single-player turn-based strategy game in which players take charge of a wandering army sent to fight the warlike Dredge.
Weaving a narrative which often demands tough choices that affect the player’s narrative permanently, it’s a game of strategy and of decisions unlike any other, winning it huge acclaim upon release earlier this year.
“We are very happy that Versus Evil found a great partner in Sold Out to bring a physical version of our game to some of the key European, Australian and New Zealand markets” says Arnie Jorgensen, Stoic’s Art Director. “The fact that there is demand for a physical version of The Banner Saga is humbling. We can’t wait to get a hold of a boxed copy ourselves and hope that fans are equally excited to pick one up today.”
The Banner Saga: The Collector’s Edition is available on PC from today, in a number of territories including, UK (£19.99), Europe (€29.99) & Australia/New Zealand ($39.99).
