Stoic Studio has decided to take some steps toward educating people on the world of The Banner Saga 3 before the game is launched next month. To say there’s a lot to unpack from The Banner Saga so far is an understatement, as both games have their own specific stories happening intertwined with the lore of the world the game is set in. So rather than throwing people into the fray cold and alone to fend for themselves and figure out what the hell is going on, the devs created a brand-new trailer recapping the key points from the first two games to give you an idea of what to expect and where everyone sits.
The idea is pretty brilliant on their part, as there are so many games that have trilogies who automatically assume you already know everything about the game before you dive in and see no reason to explain the story so far or the mythology behind it or the characters involved. And for a game like The Banner Saga 3, there’s a few things worth looking into that need to be digested before you simply jump into a new game. Please enjoy the latest trailer for the game.
