    Tags: Stoic Studio; The Banner Saga 3

    Last year, Stoic Studio, developers of The Banner Saga, revealed that they were in trouble after the game's sequel failed commercially. Not long afterwards they abruptly ran to Kickstarter for help to complete the third game in the trilogy...and ended up raising over $400k, not a bad result considering the first game got $700k back in 2012. I doubt anybody believes Banner Saga 3 will be very successful, but at least the full story will be told. We've known since January that the game is releasing this summer, but now there's an exact release date - July 24th. If you pre-order, you get an exclusive playable Dredge character, described in the following trailer:


    The Banner Saga 3 was at PAX East last week and has been previewed at a few places including PCGamesN and Eurogamer, where there's a half hour of gameplay footage. Pre-orders are available at Steam and GOG.

    How 'bad' was Nr. 2 if you kinda liked the first game?

    Some people didn't like the ending (just like with the first game) but other than that there was nothing particularly wrong with it AFAIK. Just more Banner Saga.
