Kickstarter backers will also get the Insane Viking Pack automatically with their copy of the game
Stoic Studio has announced that those who pre-order The Banner Saga will receive Insane Viking Pack, a package that arms fans with an exclusive character, ability item and three exclusive tracks from the game's original score, created by Grammy nominated composer, Austin Wintory. Pre-order customers will also be able to take advantage of the special pre-order discounted price.
The exclusive pre-order character is a Viking named Tryggvi. With a reputation as a trouble maker, Tryggvi holds his own in combat as a skilled spearman and is sure to prove useful in any hero line up. Tryggvi comes with his own exclusive necklace, made with a pearl and matching full and half-moon symbols, which grants a 10% chance to do 2x damage in combat.
The Banner Saga is available for pre-order through Steam, GOG.com, GameFly, GameStop and Gamers Gate. It will release on January 14, 2014 for PC and Mac.
