Austin, Texas based developer Stoic Studio recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for the third and final entry in their acclaimed turn-based strategy series The Banner Saga. The game will start where The Banner Saga 2 left off and just like in the second game the choices you made during your previous adventure will carry across.
"Stoic formed in 2012 with the launch of the Kickstarter for Banner Saga, and a humble ask of $100,000," Stoic wrote. "We were blown away by the response and support of the community who raised more than $700,000! That first Kickstarter campaign helped us launch the game, develop and launch the sequel and accrue many awards in the process.
"Now we’re back, in a similar position as before, hoping you’ll support Banner Saga 3 to make this game just as special. We’re still solidly indie, not accepting any investor funding so Kickstarter is still a great way to rally the community to show support for the game, while letting us call the shots on the games we make. We’re paying for most of the game ourselves, but the funds we’re asking for will enable us to take the time we need and bring the band back together one more time!"
The game will have a roster of over 40 unique characters, each with different abilities that interact in varying ways. If the first stretch goal of $250,000 will be reached, Stoic will add another playable race to the game, the Dredge. In the original The Banner Saga, the Dredge were the primary antagonists, and only appeared as enemies. They will be available in three classes: Stoneguard, Hurler, and Stonesinger.
There is no release date announced at this moment but the estimated delivery for the Kickstarter rewards is December 2018. The game will come out for PC & Mac (via Steam and GoG) but Stoic do have plans of bringing the game "to as many platforms as possible."
