Check out the video below to learn more about the new Banner Saga 2 Survival Mode update which is now available to download. Stoic explain more :
Survival Mode is a fun addition to the game that we’ve been working on. It’s still in development but we are at the point where we would like to get you involved with some playtesting and feedback.
What is Survival Mode? It’s all about staying alive through as many battles as possible! Assemble a team from almost all of the Banner Saga Heroes and equip them with items earned through your victories. Heroes who fall in battle are permanently dead. Renown is used to recruit new heroes and to promote the heroes who survive. A 30-second timer keeps the action moving, leaderboards will track how you rank against other players, and a whole set of Survival Mode achievements has been added. Try a game on Hard Mode for an even more difficult challenge and see if you have the skills to survive!
