The Banner Saga, Stoic's Kickstarted hybrid of a story-based role-playing game and turn-based strategy title, will be released Jan. 14, 2014, on Windows PC and Mac, the studio announced today.

Stoic raised more than $720,000 on Kickstarter in the spring of 2012 to develop The Banner Saga, which it later split into the full single-player game that's launching in January and a multiplayer-only standalone title, The Banner Saga: Factions, that came out this past February.

The announcement of the release date came in The Banner Saga's announcement trailer, which Stoic released today. You can watch it above. For more on The Banner Saga, check out our interview with the studio's co-founders.
