Stoic and Versus Evil have announced that a free content update called 'Survival Mode' has been released for Banner Saga 2. As the name implies, the new game feature allows players to assemble a team of heroes to take on enemies with a cost: Death of a hero in battle is permanent. Achieving certain levels of Victory, however, rewards Renown that can be used to unlock other heroes to replace those lost in battle.
Items now drop in combat, or can be purchased with Renown, so that you can constantly improve your combat team. A 30-second timer keeps the action moving and leaderboards track how each player ranks against others. All three difficulty levels are included in survival mode, so the hard core challenge is available to those who think they can make it all the way through.
