Gather ‘Round for a Breathtaking Banner Saga Medley


Perhaps the only thing more beautiful than The Banner Saga‘s artwork is the game’s original score, composed by Austin Wintory. Two of the other standout musical talents behind the soundtrack are violinist Taylor Davis and singer Malukah, their respective instrumental and vocal performances bringing such powerful emotion and atmosphere to the experience.

These two artists recently joined forces on a music video featuring a medley of two songs from The Banner Saga soundtrack, including Huddled in the Shadows and the end credits track Onward. You’re going to want to check this out, whether you have played the game or not. The full soundtrack is available from Austin Wintory’s Bandcamp page and iTunes, which I’m betting many of you will be rushing off to download soon after listening to the medley.

In other Banner Saga news, I finally completed the campaign last night. (Admittedly I did drop the difficulty down on the final battle after a few failed attempts just to see the ending before getting too frustrated, but now that it’s over I’ll reload my original save.) Stephen and I are in progress on a discussion review so watch for that coming up.
