Indie game developer Stoic and publisher Versus Evil are teaming up with HyperRPG to bring the sprawling world of The Banner Saga to life with a tabletop RPG series. There will be weekly campaigns lead by a human dungeon master, and you can catch the campaign as it runs for four weeks every Tuesday through Aug. 14.
Viewers can catch the show on the official HyperRPG Twitch channel, and will be given a HyperRPG Heraldry title to use in-game. The Banner Saga 3 is the final game in the sprawling adventure game trilogy, and now that it's out, players can play through the entirety of the series in one place on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
