Try out the multiplayer portion of Stoic Studio’s turn-based strategy RPG for free.
Indie developer Stoic Studio has released The Banner Saga: Factions for free on Steam, following a Kickstarter backer-only soft launch last week.
The Banner Saga: Factions is a free-to-play multiplayer standalone of Stoic’s Viking-inspired fantasy SRPG The Banner Saga.
“Some people have had questions about what “Factions” is, and why we released it separate from the single player Saga. To summarize, we built combat for the single player game and decided to release it as multiplayer competitive game free and early as we continue to develop the single player game. Unlike many “free to play” games, there’s no energy system, no pay to win, and matches are made between teams with even power, regardless of whether they spent money or not. In fact, we’ve pretty much designed a game that you never need to pay a cent for, truly and honestly. We’ve probably screwed ourselves. In the meantime, work continues heavily on the single player campaign.”
