Besides the Dredge Ally Pack there isn't much information about the third Banner Saga game. According to the official YouTube page, it will be available for PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch on July 24th. This means iOS fans will have an even longer wait.
Banner Saga is a strategy RPG with turn-based combat. It includes an interactive story where a player's decisions affect the outcome of the game. The game follows two playable characters who are running from the Dredge -- a warlike race led by Bellower.
Players must lead a caravan to safety while trying to figure out the weakness of the seemingly invincible Bellower. Instead of offering the typical save options, the game encourages players to deal with the consequences of their defeats. Players must move forward as they lose and gain playable party members. Players must also manage their supplies, keep up their morale and defend their caravan from different threats, such as bandits.Banner Saga 1&2 are available on the Apple App Store for $9.99. You can pre-order the third game from Steam for the PC or Mac for $24.99.
