Stoic's The Banner Saga 2 will be released on PC and Mac next month with a 10% discount available if you pre-order.

The Banner Saga 2 will be released on PC and Mac on April 19th, according to developer Stoic.

There’s a 10% discount if you pre-order, so you’ll get it for €17.99 rather than its usual €19.99 price. Steam also lists a deluxe edition, which includes the soundtrack. It costs €20.69 if you pre-order or €22.99 if you purchase it on April 19th or later.

The Banner Saga 2 is set to feature improved combat and choices, a staple of the original, as well as new characters and races, and a score from Journey composer Austin Wintory.

Stoic is also working on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, but there’s no launch window set for them just yet. The original Banner Saga was launched earlier this year on PS4 and Xbox One.

The Banner Saga 2’s announcement trailer will give you some idea of what to expect from the game’s world, though it only hints at the fact that there are difficult choices to make and battles to overcome.
