Austin, Texas - Dec. 5, 2013 - Stoic, an
Austin-based independent game development company, today released
more gameplay details for their upcoming single-player game
The Banner Saga. The “Rough Guide to
Combat” tutorial video covers the basics that a beginner
needs to consider when preparing for battle and the tactics they
need to think about while in the heat of combat.
Highlights of the video include an overview of the hero stats a
player should keep an eye on: armor, strength, willpower, exertion
and break, as well as a focus on how ‘willpower’ can
also be used strategically to boost various actions in combat to
take out an enemy.
The Banner Saga is currently in development and has a
confirmed release date of January 14, 2014 for PC and Mac.
Stoic is an independent game developer based out of Austin,
Texas, formed in early 2012 by three veteran game developers. Each

unique. The studio is comprised of Alex Thomas, Arnie
Jorgensen, and John Watson - all industry vets who are now
dedicated to continuing as independent game developers. The
