The Banner Saga 3 Release Date Announced, Pre-orders Open

The Banner Saga 3, the finale of Stoic Studio’s Norse-inspired trilogy of narrative RPGs will go live on July 24, 2018, according to this Kickstarter update. And if you pre-order the game right now on Steam or GOG, you’ll also get the Dredge Ally Pack exclusive DLC that, following in Mass Effect 3’s footsteps, will among other things give you access to an exclusive playable character with considerable lore implications. Here’s the pre-order trailer:

And a few snippets from the announcement update:

We’ve got exciting news to share with you today – we have an official launch date! July 24, 2018

We know many of you were excited that we were able to beat our original estimate of December (that never happens!) and we’re excited to bring you the trilogy’s conclusion this Summer. We’re so grateful for all your support – this has been a six year journey from the seed of an idea, to the conclusion of an epic three-game saga. Thank you for all your support, and please mark your calendars!

Physical rewards coming soon!

For those of you who have backed at the physical tier reward levels, we plan to ship your swag out around that time as well. Shipping should be billed soon so watch for that email.

And the best part is… we already won an award! Marooner’s Rock honored us with ‘Best Indie Game’ out of all the awesome nominees. We’re truly grateful to be acknowledged!
