Publisher Versus Evil and developer Stoic have announced that the third and final chapter in the acclaimed Banner Saga series, Banner Saga 3, will be launching this July.
On July 24 fans of the Banner Saga series on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch will be able to dive right back into the game to conclude the epic Viking RPG trilogy. What consequences will their past choices have? Will they survive heading into the darkness? Unfortunately mobile users will have to wait to find out until later on in the year.

- Dredge Stoneguard Character – Rank 10 Hero called Kivi

There’ll be a total of three digital versions of Banner Saga 3 at launch, the Standard Edition, Deluxe Edition which will include the game’s official soundtrack composed by Austin Wintory in addition to a digital wallpaper, world map and the ‘Gold Wasp’ in-game title, and Legendary Edition which includes everything in the Deluxe Edition plus the exclusive ‘Shadow Walker’ Heroic Title, the ‘Petrie Clan Ring’ exclusive legendary item and digital novel ‘Gift of Hadrborg’.
Finally, 505 Games will be stepping in to publish a physical package of the game titled The Banner Saga Trilogy: Bonus Edition for both Xbox One and PS4. The Bonus Edition will include all three games, as well as a mini art book, poster, a “best-of” soundtrack, and in-game digital item.
