What’s the latest on Banner Saga 3? What are the team working on now?
Stoic Studios is working hard on the final entry into their Banner Saga series. They funded the third game, Banner Saga 3, on Kickstarter, and provided a massive update on Kickstarter to let players and backers in the know about what’s going on. Here’s an excerpt from it.
“Arnie’s creative team (Art and Design) are trying to get to ‘Content Complete’ so that we can consider writing and art assets to be ‘final, polished and ready to ship.’ The final pass on writing will happen this year, and the translation/localization process will soon kick off for 10+ languages. Isn’t it exciting to think that the final chapter of the story is almost completely written? I totally know how it ends and I’m not even going to tell you. :o)
Our partner companies are kicking into high gear to deliver their final assets early next year:
Powerhouse Animation is compositing our in-game cinematics at break-neck speed to meet deadlines early in 2018. (Did you guys see their work on Battle Chasers and Castlevania? These guys are KILLIN IT)
This month we’re kicking off Quality Assurance testing to start gathering bugs to squash.
Austin Wintory is composing and delivering scratch music tracks (placeholders made digitally to stand in for the real tracks that come after recording). He’ll be tuning up the full symphony for orchestral soundtrack recording in January.
KPoW Audio is playing through the latest build and planning out sound effects.
Syrland will be recording voice over for some of our cinematics early in the new year in their intimidating Nordic voices.
Versus Evil is creating their marketing master plan, including in-person appearances for the team at many gaming shows (look for those announcements on social media in the new year!) “
No doubt more info will be coming in the upcoming weeks.
