Pre-order Incentive Announced for The Banner Saga

Stoic, an independent game development company and Versus Evil, an independent publisher, both based out of Austin, jointly announced pre-order details for the upcoming RPG strategy game, The Banner Saga. The pre-order exclusive offer, aptly named the ‘Insane Viking Pack’, arms fans with an exclusive character, ability item and three exclusive tracks from the game’s original score, created by Grammy nominated composer, Austin Wintory. Pre-order customers will also be able to take advantage of the special pre-order discounted price.

Kickstarter backers will also get the ‘Insane Viking Pack’ automatically with their copy of the game.

The exclusive pre-order character is a Viking named Tryggvi. With a reputation as a trouble maker, Tryggvi holds his own in combat as a skilled spearman and is sure to prove useful in any hero line up. Tryggvi comes with his own exclusive necklace, made with a pearl and matching full and half-moon symbols, which grants a 10% chance to do 2x damage in combat. Kickstarter backers will get the Insane Viking Pack automatically with their copy of the game.

The Banner Saga is available for pre-order through Steam,, GameFly, GameStop and Gamers Gate. It will release on January 14, 2014 for PC and Mac.
