Console fans looking for a great RPG will want to take note of today's release of The Banner Saga for both XBox One and PlayStation 4. The game runs $19.99 through each platform's store.
Stoic has announced the release date for the console port of The Banner Saga. The PlayStation 4 and XBox One versions will be headed to consoles on Tuesday, January 12, 2016.
The Banner Saga began its life as a Kickstarter created by Stoic, a new company founded by former employees of Bioware Austin. That lineage is unsurprising; The Banner Saga is a story-driven, branching dialogue tactical RPG in the great Bioware tradition. Stoic has mentioned in Kickstarter updates that the Android release is imminent, but for the time being we took the opportunity to review the iOS version and evaluate what kind of fit this already critically successful RPG is on mobile devices.
One of the year's surprise RPG hits, The Banner Saga, has now arrived on iTunes for iOS devices. The indie title can be played on both iPhone and iPad and is available for $9.99.
