To give just a little taste, and to celebrate this feat in game development, since it’s not everyday games get moved forward in the development cycle, Stoic also released the first of several trailers that highlight important characters in the upcoming game.

To make all this even better Stoic announced that award-winning composer Austin Wintory (Journey, Abzu and previous Banner Saga titles) will be live-streaming sections of his recordings for The Banner Saga 3.
