The Banner Saga: The Collector’s Edition Announced for Europe, Australia and New Zealand
Critically Acclaimed Indie Tactical RPG Gets Physical
London, UK – 17th July, 2014 – Independent developer Stoic and games publisher Versus Evil, in partnership with Sold Out Sales & Marketing Limited, today
announced that indie mega hit The Banner Saga will be heading to retail stores in Europe, Australia and New Zealand on 25th July.
The Viking-themed tactical role playing game – which has received and been nominated for several awards and praise for its story, art design and gameplay mechanics – will be available in physical form for the first time ever. This special Collector’s Edition will offer fans a permanent collection of one of this year’s best indie games and will include the core game along with the ‘Insane Viking Pack’ digital content and Official Soundtrack.
Boasting a style inspired by classic animation films of yesteryear, with stunning hand-drawn visuals capturing a merciless Nordic era, The Banner Saga is a single-player turn-based strategy game in which players take charge of a wandering army sent to fight the warlike Dredge.
Weaving a narrative which often demands tough choices that affect the player’s narrative permanently, it’s a game of strategy and of decisions unlike any other, winning it huge acclaim upon release earlier this year.
“We are very happy that Versus Evil found a great partner in Sold Out to bring a physical version of our game to some of the key European, Australian and New Zealand markets” says Arnie Jorgensen, Stoic’s Art Director. “The fact that there is demand for a physical version of The Banner Saga is humbling. We can’t wait to hold a boxed copy ourselves and hope that fans are equally excited.”
The Banner Saga: The Collector’s Edition will be available on PC on 25th July, in a number of territories including, UK (£19.99), Europe (€29.99) & Australia/New Zealand ($39.99).
The Banner Saga is being distributed in these territories by Sold Out Sales & Marketing Limited. For any sales inquiries, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
