Stoic (a company founded by former Bioware employees) has revealed The Banner Saga, a strategy-RPG about vikings.
What is The Banner Saga?
Short answer: role-playing meets turn-based strategy, wrapped into an adventure mini-series about vikings.
Travel through stunning landscapes straight out of an animated film as your party escapes what could be the end of everything. Battle painstakingly hand-animated foes in strategic, turn-based combat. Make decisions with real consequences in conversations with people you'll actually care about.
The Banner Saga is a mature game aimed at gamers who appreciate art, story and strategy. Hope you'll join the caravan.
So, were they fired from Bioware? >_> Is there like three of them? I don't get it. Step backwards, man. This is the game they were dying to make? They had my attention with the Bioware name, but I can't say the concept is going to excite more than the few niche SRPG players. They'd best produce a demo because this is an odd concept.
