The Banner Saga 2 Expands the Caravan onto PS4, Xbox One and PC
Stoic announced at the Game Awards in Las Vegas that it's working on The Banner Saga 2, and now it's announced which platforms you can see it on.
There has been what seems to be just about a million game announcements since the Game Awards and PlayStation Experience happened this weekend. However, one to note is The Banner Saga 2. Being an independent game development company, Stoic especially appreciated the Game Awards that showcased the independent games out there for a change of pace.
"There's a seismic shift in the video game industry as consumers embrace the contributions and creations of independent game-makers such as Stoic, the incredibly passionate creators of The Banner Saga and The Banner Saga 2," said Steve Escalante, general manager, Versus Evil, in a press release. "We are very proud to be leading the way with The Banner Saga 2 announcement at what is traditionally a AAA game's event. It's a great time to be an 'indie' and we couldn't be more proud to continue working with the Stoic team and our partners at Fearless Media who helped make this happen."
While it's no surprise that The Banner Saga is coming out with a sequel, as it is meant to be a trilogy, it's exciting nonetheless. The new game, "will continue the legacy and story of The Banner Saga" and feature "stunning 2D animation and art, a unique tactical comba system and a cast of unforgettable characters," which is something the original game was already praised for.
Additional information will be announced in early 2015 and we're excited to see what the second installment of the trilogy will bring to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
