The Banner Saga 2 launches in just under two weeks. Developer Stoic has released a launch trailer for the Viking-inspired strategy title, featuring a look at some fresh combat from the game as well as some all-new cinematics.  

Developed by a trio of Bioware alumni, The Banner Saga 2 is the second installment in the tactical role-playing series based on Norse mythology. Like its predecessor, The Banner Saga 2 blends turn-based strategy combat featuring permadeath consequences with narrative-based moral decision making, all rendered in hand drawn 2D visuals. 

The title introduces new characters to the series as well as a new race, the centaur-like Horseborn. You can read more about the game's new and returning cast of characters in issue 277 of Game Informer magazine.
