The Banner Saga 2, the bloody and beautiful sequel to the 2014 cult hit, is a challenging game. Not only does it test your patience and leadership skills outside of battle, but it consistently tests your mettle in the heat of its tense combat. When forging across the continent to escape the Dredge, there isn't much that can help you outside of trusting your gut. In combat, though, there are a couple of tips that can help keep the fight in your favor.
For players of Stoic and Versus Evil's original The Banner Saga, the sequel will feel very familiar. When you watch the nightless sky hover solemnly over the battle torn countryside, fires of skirmishes long abandoned still flickering defiantly, you oddly feel a sense of home. Even with its small tweaks, additions, and adjustments, The Banner Saga 2 is very similar to its predecessor in all the right ways.
The day Banner Saga fans have been eagerly anticipating is finally here: The launch of The Banner Saga 2 on Steam. The game is a continuation of the events that took place in the first title, and it includes new characters, a new race (the Horseborn), and improved combat. This is a game of important decisions, strategic gameplay, and epic storytelling in a world wrecked by chaos. Are you prepared to do what it takes to emerge victorious?
