Stoic Studios has launched a Kickstarter for The Banner Saga 3.
The current goal is for $200,000 by March 7. Stoic Studios will be funding most of the game themselves and the Kickstarter will fund “additional features”. Money from the campaign will specifically go towards more animations from Animation Powerhouse, voice work from Studio Sryland, and composer Austin Wintory.
This Banner Saga will be the last in the trilogy and will conclude the story that begun in the original game.
“In Banner Saga 3, players will embark on their final journey beyond the wall of Darkness to traverse the world unlike anything encountered in previous sagas. The beautifully hand drawn Viking role-playing adventure will once again test the player’s resolve through epic tactical battles against deadly adversaries where a player’s choice directly affects their personal journey. The lives of your clansmen and their families have never been more significant than in the final act of the series.”
As of now the focus is purely on PC/OSX version of the game. The developers have stated that they will “still be bringing Banner Saga 3 to as many platforms as possible”. All previous Banner Saga games have made their way to consoles and mobile devices so it is likely the Banner Saga 3 will follow.
Reward tiers begin at $20 which offer a copy of the game and access to backer forums. Backers can also receive The Banner Saga 1 and 2 at the end of the campaign if they an additional $20 is added to a pledge.
There is no release date or estimate for the game.
