The Banner Saga 3 Has Been Fully Funded - New Stretch Goal Announced
Following the announcement that The Banner Saga 3 would be Kickstarted, Stoic have confirmed that it is now fully funded -- less than 7 days after the original campaign began.
Stoic's co-founder and Technical Director, John Watson, also revealed that since the initial $200,000 target was met, a stretch goal of $250,000 has been added which will allow gamers to play as Dredge if the new target is also hit.
Offering his thanks to the backers, Watson said:
“We’re thrilled to have funded the Kickstarter in less than a week. Once again it’s down to the amazing support of the community, and we truly appreciate every backer that has helped us reach our funding goal.
This is huge for us and have now revealed the first stretch goal! A big thanks again to all of our supporters for helping us get this far.”
The Viking role-playing game's third chapter will take players beyond the wall of Darkness into a previously unseen world. Player choice once again comes to the fore, and the decisions you make will be as important to your endgame as your victories on the battlefield.
With 34 days to go and the target at over $215,000 at the time of writing, it looks likely that the first stretch goal will easily be met. We're anticipating more goals to be added as the Kickstarter rumbles on.
