We were first introduced to the Viking RPG in 2012 when the developers funded their passion project through Kickstarter, making almost seven times the initial goal. The first two games of the trilogy, The Banner Saga and The Banner Saga 2, both received 90s from us previously, as we highlighted our love of the impressive narrative and beautiful art design. We can’t wait to see what awaits in this final chapter!
