Every decision you make in travel, conversation and combat has a meaningful effect on the outcome as your story unfolds. Not everyone will survive, but they will be remembered.

  • Strategic combat with consequences - victory or defeat and even the permanent loss of a character depends on which characters you choose to take into battle and what decisions you make afterwards.

  • The journey is as important as battle – your role in building and managing your caravan as you travel the vast frozen landscape is critical to not only your own survival but the survival of an entire civilization.

  • An epic Viking saga brought to life in 2D glory – beautifully hand drawn combat sequences and animations, accompanied by an evocative score from Grammy-nominated composer Austin Wintory, will immerse you into a fantasy realm inspired by Norse mythology.

Lovely game

This game was refreshing. I wasn't sure what I was expecting when I booted it up, but I was pleasantly surprised to be surrounded in a rich world, full of color and life. The art style is right up my alley and the music sucks you right into the story. The writing is absolutely charming and anyone who likes this period in history and enjoys story driven well executed games, would be please by this title.

It's different than what we're used to, but definitely a welcomed change.

Hey, you don't know the Banner Saga yet? Where have you been for all the past months? This game is one of the hottest titles now. It's a great interpretation of the viking theme, translated into a role playing game. With great story, excellent setting and memorable cartoony graphics, it will keep you entertained for long if you are even remotely interested in vikings, early middle ages, fantasy or role playing. And now this game comes with a complete official soundtrack composed by Austin Wintory as one big deluxe pack. So if you can afford it, expect to like the game and are a fan of good soundtracks, don't wait to get the game and the soundtrack separately. The Banner Saga: Deluxe has them both and I will be surprised if you don't enjoy them.
