Stoic Games has announced that the crowdfunding campaign for Banner Saga 3 has come to an end. During the 40-day campaign a total of $416,986 was raised, which was enough to break the $200,000 initial goal and reach three stretch goals.
Stretch goals unlocked during the Kickstarter campaign include the Playable Dredge, (Dredge Stoneguard, Hurler and Stonesinger Heroes), Survival Mode (choose six heroes to pit against a plethora of battle-hardened enemies and fight to the death), Ubin Lives (that old varl is back, and his fate is in your hands) and new game mode Eternal Arena (pits your best combat tactics against quick-play challenges).
"The support from backers and the community has been amazing, and it's humbling to know that RTS fans around the world really want to support us", said John Watson, co-founder and Technical Director at Stoic. "The additional funds will be invested into bringing as much of our intended vision to the final game and rewarding our backers' support with an unforgettable experience to conclude this epic tale."
In Banner Saga 3, players will embark on their final journey beyond the wall of Darkness to traverse a world unlike anything encountered in previous sagas. The beautifully hand drawn Viking role-playing adventure will once again test the player's resolve through epic tactical battles against deadly adversaries where a player's choice directly affects their personal journey.
With a release date yet to be announced, Banner Saga 3 is currently listed only for PC and Mac, but like the last two games, it will surely come to other platforms such as PS4 and Xbox One. Those who add $20 to any pledge will receive the first two games for free.
