In The Banner Saga 2, the world continues to crumble around you. Only one bastion of hope remains, but getting there will require strong leadership, hard sacrifices, influencing new heroes, and, as always, sound strategy in combat.

2D hand-drawn combat sequences and animations have been enhanced with special effects. The score is again by Grammy-nominated composer Austin Wintory.

If you’ve played the first game, the choices you’ve made will influence how you start Banner Saga 2. If you’re new or simply want to take the default route, some choices will have been made for you. Either way, hard choices are ahead.

An already challenging combat system has been improved, but combat won’t be everything. You’ll have to balance personnel in your caravan in an effort to survive the next battle and avoid starving.

Banner Saga 2 for PC/Windows and Mac is available now for pre-order through Steam at a 10% discount. The game will launch on April 19th.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
