The Banner Saga 2 is now officially available on Android devices for anyone who is looking for a new RPG to play, whether old fans of the original game or newcomers who are just diving into the series. While Banner Saga 2 is just now landing in the Play Store at a price of $4.99, the game has been available on the PC platform since earlier this year and can be picked up through services like Steam. That said, the Android version is obviously quite a bit cheaper but still offers every bit as good of gameplay as the PC version, and if you're not opposed to playing the game with touch controls and on a smaller display, this is a game worth checking out.
All that said, Banner Saga 2 will appeal mostly to those who really love the Role-Playing genre, but if you're simply a fan of games with rich storytelling then the second title in this franchise from Versus Evil will likely not disappoint. Banner Saga 2 is not just about storytelling, though, as it also offers up deep strategical and tactical gameplay that will be able to delight anyone who has a passion for games with a bit of challenge.
Of course, another one of Banner Saga 2's strong points is the ability to choose the direction of various events and in-game scenarios, which can not only drive the direction of the game but also shift the experience you have with it, and this sort of player choice is one feature that made the original as well as sequel so popular with fans. Beyond the masterful story and engaging gameplay, Banner Saga 2 also offers up some of the most gorgeous visuals you'll ever see in a game. These aren't 3D, ultra HD graphics that look almost too real to be true, but rather 2D, hand-drawn graphics that makes everything look like a playable animated film. These visuals aren't just part of the cut scenes but are also part of the actual gameplay making for a nice and enjoyable visual experience while playing. The theme of the game follows Viking Mythology, and throughout the game you'll not only have to make some difficult decisions which could result in a negative outcome, but you'll also be able to upgrade various elements of the game like your characters, their abilities, your weapons, and more. Banner Saga 2 also introduces new characters and a new race into the game called the Horseborn, and to round out the offering it features a nice set of background tracks to make the whole game feel more immersive and rich. You can grab Banner Saga 2 from the Play Store right now if you're interested, although you'll definitely want to make sure that there is a good chunk of space available on your device as the game file is pretty big, and seems to need around 2GB-3GB of free space.
