The game is also scheduled to release for mobile devices later on in 2018, but a solid release date hasn’t been set just yet.
In addition to announcing the release date, Stoic Studios also unveiled that PC gamers will be eligible to receive pre-order bonuses, including the Dredge Ally Pack, which includes a Dredge Stoneguard character named Kivi who joins your team. He’s a rank 10 warrior and can easily help turn the tide during the tactical turn-based battles.
Kivi also comes with a special Sculptor’s Tools item, along with the “Shield Cleaver” title and the the overture track for Banner Saga 3 from composer Austin Wintory, the same brilliant mind behind the award-winning Journey soundtrack.
A trailer for the pre-order bonuses was also released, which you can view below.
If the Dredge plays a part in the story – a significant part, sort of like the Promethean from Mass Effect 3’s DLC – I can only imagine some fans getting somewhat peeved at the idea of having to pre-order the game to get their hands on this character.
The standard version of the game will be available for $24.99, while the deluxe edition will cost you $29.99, which comes bundled with Wintory’s official soundtrack for the game, along with a digital wallpaper, world map, and the “Gold Wasp” in-game title. There’s also the legendary edition that runs for $39.99, and it comes with a couple of legendary itmes and the “Shadow Walker” title.
Additionally, there will be a physical edition of the game launching for the PS4 and Xbox One courtesy of 505 Games for $39.99. The physical edition will actually include the entire Banner Saga trilogy, which isn’t a bad price for all three games on disc.
