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.
“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.
