Hey everyone. Remember The Banner Saga? No? Shame on you. The Banner Saga is a RPG/RTS hybrid that is developed by Stoic, a company formed by ex-BioWare members. Although the game has not been finished yet, Stoic has unveiled the first gameplay footage from the game’s combat system.
Now before jumping to early conclousions, The Banner Saga will not be a mere F2P game. The Banner Saga will sport both SP and MP modes. However, the mode that is showcased below is the multiplayer portion of The Banner Saga – called The Banner Saga Factions – and will be coming (for free) this Winter on PC & Mac, via Steam.
Even though the combat mechanics look quite simple at first glance, there is a lot of depth in this turn-based title. And it sure as hell looks cute and addictive.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
