My main genre of games that I love is RPGs. The epic adventures you go on and the strategy needed while you are playing is just really enjoyable to me. I grew up playing Final Fantasy and I’m always drawn to those types of games. I’ve been watching The Banner Saga come along and I’m so excited they are finally launching today!
The Banner Saga 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. The game also features stunning 2D animation and art, a unique tactical combat system, and a cast of unforgettable characters that drive this epic journey forward. Players will also enjoy a beautiful and haunting original score by Grammy nominated, and two-time BAFTA winner, composer Austin Wintory conducting The Dallas Winds orchestra, as well as a powerhouse trio of acclaimed YouTube sensations: Peter Hollens, Malukah and Taylor Davis.
The graphics remind me of an older game but it’s gorgeous. Polished and simple in perfection. Playing the game is sure to be an experience. Check out the Launch Trailer of The Banner Saga to see how the graphics look and tell me they aren’t wonderful!
The Banner Saga launches today on PC and Mac at 19.00 GMT / 20.00 CET . Their is some time still to pre-order from a few sources where you will earn some exclsuive items if you do so before it launches!
I need to go find some money and pre-order this game. I can’t wait to check it out and hopefully it’s as amazing as I think it’s going to be!
