Last year, Stoic Games raised more than $700,000 on Kickstarter for its turn-based tactical game, The Banner Saga – more than seven times what they were asking for. Now, we've got a look at the game in action via an all-new trailer. It shows off the hand-drawn, Viking-inspired art and tactical gameplay.

Player choice is a big part of the game, and the developers are promising that every choice regarding travel, conversation, and combat will create ripples that resonate throughout the entire story.

Stoic Games, which was formed by three former BioWare employees, is also announcing a partnership with Versus Evil. Versus Evil will be publishing the game on PC and Mac when the game releases on January 14.
