The Banner Saga joins a growing list of games that are playable for free with the Origin Access membership.
The Banner Saga is a tactical RPG developed by Stoic, and published by Versus Evil. It's a story-driven RPG an emphasis on player choices, as well as an intriguing turn-based tactical combat system that will challenge you.
Live through an epic role-playing Viking saga where your strategic choices directly affect your personal journey. Make allies as you travel with your caravan across this stunning yet harsh landscape. Carefully choose those who will help fight a new threat that jeopardizes an entire civilization. Every decision you make in travel, conversation and combat has a meaningful effect on the outcome as your story unfolds. Not everyone will survive, but they will be remembered.
The Banner Saga is only the latest game to join The Vault in recent weeks, with Titanfall having been added a few weeks prior. There are now 18 games available to be played for free with an Origin Access membership --which costs $4.99 (£3.99). More will follow every few weeks.
