AUSTIN, TX - Dec. 17, 2013 - Stoic, an independent
game development company and Versus Evil, an independent publisher,
both based out of Austin, today jointly announced pre-order
details for the upcoming RPG strategy game,
The Banner Saga. The pre-order exclusive offer,
aptly named the ‘Insane Viking Pack’, arms fans with an
exclusive character, ability item and three exclusive tracks from
the game’s original score, created by Grammy nominated
composer, Austin Wintory. Pre-order customers will also be
able to take advantage of the special pre-order discounted
Kickstarter backers will also get the ‘Insane Viking
Pack’ automatically with their copy of the game.
The exclusive pre-order character is a Viking named Tryggvi.
With a reputation as a trouble maker, Tryggvi holds his own in
combat as a skilled spearman and is sure to prove useful in any
hero line up. Tryggvi comes with his own exclusive necklace,
made with a pearl and matching full and half-moon symbols, which
grants a 10% chance to do 2x damage in combat. Kickstarter
backers will get the Insane Viking Pack automatically with their
copy of the game.
The Banner Saga is available for pre-order through Steam,
GOG.com, GameFly, GameStop and Gamers Gate. It will release
on January 14, 2014 for PC and Mac.
