View Full Version : Welcome to the Factions Discussion Area! [A MUST READ FOR NEW VIKINGS!]

02-18-2013, 10:29 AM
Hello all! The Stoic Team has officially released the multiplayer version of The Banner Saga called Factions -- currently available for free for PC and Mac on Steam (http://store.steampowered.com/app/219340). While the team is still hard at work on the single-player version, you may now play Factions and, better yet, play it for free!

If you are running into problems or need assistance with Factions, please post in the discussion area (the subforum to here) Factions Help & Support (http://stoicstudio.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?21).

In an effort to ensure you can find not only all the great information we want to ensure you're seeing, but also to find the recent conversations, we are using this sticky post to point out most of the content you may be looking for.

Here are the two tutorial videos that you will also be able to access within the game itself:



A special thanks goes out to all of the fans who have been supporting The Banner Saga and Stoic through the Kickstarter program as well as those who have been testing Factions to help it get out to the public. Without your help, the team would have had a much longer and harder road so thank you again for this milestone in The Banner Saga and Stoic history!

Correction: The Factions Discussion area is live now. (Or else I wouldn't be able to post this!)
