'The Banner Saga' Announced By Former Bioware Devs

The Banner Saga is a role-playing meets turn-based strategy, wrapped into an adventure mini-series about vikings.

Stoic is an independent game developer based out of Austin, Texas, formed by Alex Thomas, Arnie Jorgensen and John Watson after working together for half a decade on Bioware's Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Travel through stunning landscapes straight out of an animated film as your party escapes what could be the end of everything. Battle painstakingly hand-animated foes in strategic, turn-based combat. Make decisions with real consequences in conversations with people you'll actually care about.

The Banner Saga is a mature game aimed at gamers who appreciate art, story and strategy.

The Banner Saga will be released in two steps, the first will be a free to play turn-based combat game, with a full story mode edition to arrive later in the year.
