The Banner Saga 2 Gets a Free Survival Mode

A free Survival Mode has been released for The Banner Saga 2, Stoic has announced.

In this new mode players will have to assemble a combat team from a large range of existing The Banner Saga heroes. Once their team is complete, combat begins. However, perma-death in battle is real and once killed, a hero can not be brought back.

 To complete the mode players will need to survive 40 back-to-back combat levels.
Techincal Director at Stoic, John Watson, has this to say about the mode:

“Survival Mode is something we’ve been working on behind the scenes for a while now. This is an entirely new experience within Banner Saga 2. Our goal was to create a fun, tactical game mode where fans can play from a different perspective which focuses on strategy and the hard cost of death in combat.”

The Banner Saga 2 launches for consoles July 26 and mobile devices later in the summer.
