The Banner Saga 3 has been officially revealed as a Kickstarter campaign for the game went live several hours ago. The developers from Stoic Games are determined to make it a fine conclusion to their epic adventure about Vikings. Since they are still an indie studio, not accepting money from investors, they are humbly asking fans for $200,000. However, it seems that reaching that funding goal will not be a problem, since nearly half of it has already been collected and there are still 41 days to go. Later on the studio will announce stretch goals. The current plan is to release The Banner Saga 3 on PC, but the developers want it ultimatelly to hit as many platforms as possible.
The story in The Banner Saga 3 will be even darker than that of its two predecessors, with the end of the world reaching its climax and The Darkness playing a greater role than ever. Your decisions will determine how it all ends and who gets to survive to see it. As for gameplay, this is still a merge between a role-playing game and tactical turn-based strategy. Once more the game will be set in a beautiful hand-drawn world reminiscent of good old motion pictures, and feature soundtrack composed by Austin Wintory, who did musical scores for both previous games and Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate in the meantime, among others, of course.
The first Banner Saga was a massive success on Kickstarter, having reached over $700,000, which was about seven times more than the developers asked for. The second part, however, wasn’t as successful, in its first few months on Steam having sold around a third of what The Banner Saga did over the same period, writes GamesIndustry.biz.
