The Banner Saga Arrives on PS4 January 12th, 2016

Lance from Versus Evil here to share some great news about The Banner Saga! It’s officially launching for PS4 on January 12th, 2016.

The Banner Saga

John Watson has been working on bringing the game to consoles for quite a while. The process involved not only getting Banner Saga playable on consoles, but redesigning the user experience to better fit PS4 and DualShock 4. John and Mark Cooke spent quite a while narrowing down the specific user experience and ensuring that the Banner Saga experience was true to form while holding a controller in hand. We’re all happy with the work that went into the PS4 version of The Banner Saga and we’re eager for all of you to start your own saga.

The Banner Saga has you live through an epic role-playing Viking saga where your strategic choices directly affect your personal journey. Make allies as you travel with your caravan across this stunning yet harsh landscape. Carefully choose those who will help fight a new threat that jeopardizes an entire civilization. Every decision you make in travel, conversation, and combat has a meaningful effect on the outcome as your story unfolds. Not everyone will survive, but they will be remembered.

The art of The Banner Saga stands out and grabs the attention of people wherever we take the game. Arnie Jorgensen was heavily inspired by the American master Eyvind Earle for the art in The Banner Saga, but a lesser known inspiration came from the children’s books by Ingri and Edgar Parin D’Aulaire, both Leif the Lucky and Book of Norse Myths.

We’re also pleased to announce that the game is localized in French, German, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Italian languages. We’re eager for people to experience this epic Viking tale around the world, and we can’t wait for you to begin your saga on January 12th, 2016.

Thanks again for all of your support and a huge thank you to Sony for being so great to work with! We’re looking forward to Banner Saga 2 and we’ll be sharing more information about that very soon. Be sure to keep your saved games from The Banner Saga as you’ll be able to import your saved data and continue your exact caravan, character, and story choices straight into Banner Saga 2.

  • Looks like it would be better on the bigger screen for me!

  • I played it on PC so I’m really excited to play it on PS4/PSV.
    Can you please confirm if the Spanish subtitles have been improved?

    The version on Steam for Spanish was bad actually so i had to play it in English. Not big issue but it’s always more welcome if you can play it in your original language:)

  • Been waiting for this one. Will buy on PS4

  • I just found this post today and I’m a little confused, is the ps4 getting the banner saga 1 and 2 or just 2?

  • Jan. 12th and can’t seem to find Banner Saga available in PlayStation store. What’s the deal?

  • Would “The Banner Saga” be a cross-buy/cross-play title once the vita version comes up? I love playing RPGs on my Vita and I’d love to play this game at home on the PS4 and on the go with the Vita.
