The Banner Saga 2 released today

The journey continues! Stoic's The Banner Saga 2 releases today. As of this writing, Steam says it has about 3 hours to unlock. Sadly, I won't be able to play it until after work, but I very much look forward to it. I reviewed The Banner Saga Factions here on the site and the first game itself on MacWorld if you're interested to read up about it.

The Banner Saga 2 continues directly from the events of the first game, with your choices carrying over, and who lives and who dies (a la Mass Effect) actually impacting the story. Of course if you've never played the first game, you won't have a save file to carry over. I recommend you go play the first game right now so you can have your own saga.

The second game improves on combat in a variety of ways, features new storylines and of course, your caravans desperate traversal of a dying world.

The Banner Saga 2 is the second entry in a planned trilogy. You can buy it on Steam for $19.99, or head over to the Devs website to read all about them.
