Versus Evil have today confirmed that their award winning title, The Banner Saga will be dropping onto Xbox One and PS4 real soon.
Arriving on Jan 12th 2016, The Banner Saga received much acclaim when dropping onto PC and mobile. An epic Viking RPG strategy game in which the players choice of travel, conversation and combat will determine many outcomes of not just the story, but indeed the survival of an entire civilisation, The Banner Saga will come complete with stunning 2D animation and a unique tactical combat system.
“We have been working on porting Banner Saga to consoles for some time” said John Watson, founder and technical director at Stoic. “Porting the game certainly presented technical challenges that we needed to overcome, and gave us an opportunity to redesign the user experience for console controllers. We have managed to merge the story and gameplay from Banner Saga with a refined controller interface to make it a very enjoyable console gaming experience.”
“Launching the Banner Saga on next gen consoles is a huge step forward for Stoic and the brand” said Steve Escalante, general manager of Versus Evil. “With this latest achievement, the Stoic team is able to work on more platforms and reach more customers with its games and technology. This is not a small thing to consider for such a small team. Looking ahead at what this could mean for Banner Saga 2 gets really exciting.”
