The Banner Saga - Update #26

by Dhruin, 2012-11-09 12:06:12

Stoic has sent out a backers-only update for The Banner Saga, announcing all backers should now have access to the Factions beta as well as some other development comments:

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen! We're happy to announce that all backers have now received beta keys and should be able to get in the game and try out the combat.

In addition, we've just released a new build with a lot of new things. We've added the fifth playable class, the Backbiter. He's an upgraded axeman using the Shield Wall passive and his active ability is Run Through, which allows you to pass through enemy units, doing armor damage, before stabbing them in the back. It really opens up movement on the board and is a ton of fun, give it a try! We've also fixed the crashing/divergence problem that plagued the last build so you shouldn't have trouble finishing your matches now.

If you haven't been added to beta yet but would like to get involved, you're always welcome. Please head to our forums and create an account using the same email address as your kickstarter account. That's all you need to do, and we'll send out keys and instructions on how to get the client on a regular basis.
