The Banner Saga Status Update
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Stoic recently released a new status update for the company's upcoming strategy role playing adventure game, The Banner Saga. The update includes information about beta testing plans, and a progress report on what has been accomplished so far.

A first release is fast approaching

As a lot of the mundane but time-consuming aspects of running a business settle down (changing banks and setting up quickbooks... ugh), we've now entered a very critical period of development. As we've mentioned before, we're working exclusively on the combat system for the full game now, and we'll be releasing this combat as a free standalone called Factions, in the near future. A free demo with both single player and multiplayer content, if you will. We're just now transitioning from alpha to beta on this combat release, which means going from playable to polished and balanced. This is a pretty critical part of the process and we're all buckling down for an intense couple of months.

Entering beta not only lets us test final, fully functional combat but it also allows our sound developers and composer to start implementing their work and we can finally get all the animations and particles tied up to each action.

Check out the update at the page listed below.
