Sold Out Sales & Marketing Limited has today announced the mega indie hit The Banner Saga will be heading to stores on 25th July.
The Viking-themed tactical role playing game – which has won countless awards for its beautiful, atmospheric but brutal gameplay – will be available as a physical release for the first time ever.
This special Collector’s Edition will offer fans a permanent collection of one of this year’s best games and will include the core game along with the Official Soundtrack and the Insane Viking Pack – the latter, originally an exclusive preorder incentive, now unavailable to buy outside of this edition.
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 which will affect the narrative permanently, it’s a game of strategy and of decisions unlike any other, winning it huge acclaim upon release earlier this year.
“There are some games which demand permanent display – and The Banner Saga is unquestionably one of those,” says James Cato – Sales Director, Sold Out. “This is the definitive version of the game – and the only way those who didn’t pre-order the digital version can experience the additional content. We’ve worked really closely with Stoic to create a pack which does their stunning game justice – we know it’ll go down well with fans new and old alike.”
The announcement of The Banner Saga: The Collector’s Edition is further demonstration of Sold Out’s commitment to bring the very best indie digital releases to retail. The firm – which recently announced a partnership with Team17 Digital Limited to bring its forthcoming digital titles to retail – continues to actively seek new publishing opportunities.
The Banner Saga: The Collector’s Edition will be available on PC on 25th July, priced £19.99.
