Banner Saga 2 arrives on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in July
Stoic and Versus Evil were excited to announce that Banner Saga 2 will be arriving on July 26, 2016 for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It has received several excellent reviews in its current PC and MAC release, and you can check out the accolades trailer below:
John Watson, Technical Director at Stoic stated, “We are happy that we were able to create a development schedule where the console version of Banner Saga 2 could come out shortly after the PC version. Although our team size dictated what we could do with the first release, we knew that a two year wait for the sequel was just not acceptable, so we worked extremely hard to ensure that console gamers could continue their journey in a timely fashion. Our goal for Banner Saga 3 is to simultaneously ship on all platforms!”
Steve Escalante, General Manager at Versus Evil, commented, “This sequel continues to build on the legacy Stoic has created with the Banner Saga. New players can jump right in and play without any concern of not playing the original game. We didn’t want anyone penalized if they were jumping into this story for the first time. However, the diehard fans who completed the first game will be able to continue their own saga based on all the choices they made in Banner Saga 1. The Stoic team has done an amazing job of ensuring this sequel is better than the first and addressed many comments their community had including improvements to combat, a wider variety of characters to play and interact with and the addition of more animations and cinematics,” he concluded.
In celebration of the sequel’s launch, the team also released a new trailer that pays homage to the first game:
