Star Wars: The Old Republic, have announced a new game, The Banner Saga. The trio, who have founded a new studio called Stoic Games, describe the game as "role-playing meets turn-based strategy, wrapped into an adventure mini-series about vikings."
According to Watson in an interview with Indie Game Magazine, "It will include BioWare-style dialog, exploration of gorgeously painted landscapes, and turn-based strategic combat. The story is compelling and epic, and your choices will dramatically affect the outcome of the story.”
In an interesting marketing choice, Stoic plans on releasing the game in two parts. “We intend to release the turn-based combat as a stand alone game this Spring, followed by the full story based and exploration game in the Fall,” according to Watson.
