The third and final chapter in the Banner Saga trilogy - Banner Saga 3, in fact - will be hitting PC and consoles on the 24th of July.
“Banner Saga 3 represents the feeling of closure but also immense accomplishment to a trilogy that has been at the very fabric of our lives for many years. We’re ever thankful to the fans and backers that have shared this epic journey with us and helped us deliver what we feel is a fitting end to our Viking adventure.” Said John Watson, Technical Director of Stoic, in an announcement over the weekend.
There's a neat pre-order package that looks worthwhile, too, though, you know... pre-orders still suck, but we'll let Stoic and Versus Evil (dev and publisher respectively) get away with this one. Here's what you get in the Dredge Ally Pack:
- Dredge Stoneguard Character - Rank 10 Hero called Kivi
- Unique Combat Ability: Tank
- Unique Dredge Item - Sculptor's Tools
- Exclusive Dredge Heraldry
- Unique Heroic Title: “Shield Cleaver’
- Exclusive Banner Saga 3 Overture Track – by Grammy-nominated and two-time BAFTA winning composer Austin Wintory
There are also three different digital editions to pick up, and a physical retail edition.
The Standard Edition is $US24.99, while the Deluxe Edition (which includes the game's soundtrack, and some other digital goodies) costs $US29.99. The Legendary Edition is $39.99, and boasts the same as the Deluxe, and digital novel, and some more neat game stuff.
Finally, the retail edition is the complete Banner Saga Trilogy - though that's only on Xbone and PS4, so poop. But there will be a PC Bonus Edition with all three games, though only a digital version.
