The Banner Saga gets an announcement trailer

Just over a week ago, three ex-BioWare employees announced that they’d set up a new development team called Stoic Studios. They also announced that they were working on a “role-playing meets turn-based strategy” game about Vikings.

The game is called The Banner Saga and it just got its first trailer that shows off the undeniably beautiful art style and animation. There’s also a glimpse of what to expect from the “turn-based strategy” portion of the game as well as a glimpse of the “role-playing” part.

Hit the jump for the video. We’ll be keeping an eye on this game and will let you know more as soon as Stoic releases information.
