The Banner Saga: Factions (or simply Factions) is the premiere multiplayer role-playing strategy game on PC and Mac. It brings the feeling of beloved tactical games to a high-definition era with gorgeous hand-animated artwork and a degree of depth unprecedented in the realm of free games. Fight, learn, and lead your clan of vikings to glory!
The turn-based multi-player combat component was released on Steam as a free standalone game, called The Banner Saga: Factions, prior to the release of the single-player game. Factions became available to Kickstarter backers on February 18th 2013 and then to the rest of the public on February 25th. The game allows players to pick a team of six combatants, chosen from between 16 classes, and fight against other players online. The goal is to defeat all six of the enemy team units.
