The Banner Saga Factions Gameplay
Overview

The Banner Saga Factions, developed and published by Stoic Studio, is a turn based free online RPG. The development team is made up of only 3 members. They are former Bioware employees and have worked on famous titles like Star Wars: The Old Republic. The Banner Saga Factions was independently funded through a Kickstarter campaign. The Banner Saga is supposed to be a trilogy. The first game (single player) The Banner Saga Chapter 1 is preparing for a 2013 release. The Banner Saga Factions is a standalone title and is already available through Steam. The chosen game theme is fantasy but with Viking elements. Players will step into the shoes of Viking clan leaders, build an alliance and fight each other in strategic matches.

Players are in charge of an entire The Banner Saga Factions clan. There isn’t just one playable character. You get to build a powerful Viking clan by adding more heroes. There are 16 classes of heroes to choose from. Each of The Banner Saga Factions hero has a set of stats. Players can choose what stats to increase so they create personalized heroes. All hero types (from tank classes to ranged damage dealers) are covered. A clan has 6 members. Training and upgrades are also necessary. Every time you score a kill or win a match, you gain Renown. The Proving Grounds is the place where The Banner Saga Factions players spend Renown to train their warriors. This is also a good place to come up with different combat strategies. The Banner Saga Factions combat system is unique and exciting. There aren’t any random actions. The Banner Saga Factions matches aren’t just stats or gear checks. The victory goes to those that show real skills. The Banner Saga Factions is a beautifully designed MMORPG. Each The Banner Saga Factions hero is hand drawn and animated. The overall style resembles classic animated movies. Graphics are nicely polished with lively colors.

Even though The Banner Saga Factions is a separate game, it has its own place in The Banner Saga lore. Strand is one of the cities in The Banner Saga Factions world. Clans can form alliances and start new cities. Clan battles for territorial control are planned The Banner Saga Factions updates. The Banner Saga Factions match mechanics aren’t complicated but the winning strategy depends entirely on the 2 combatants. Two players compete in a match and the first one to destroy all enemy heroes wins the match. The concept is simple but the great variety of different strategies adds gameplay depth. The Banner Saga Factions is a great free RPG for those who like to mix character customization with strategic fights.
