The ex-BioWare bods, Stoic, with their offices in a goat shed have released a trailer for the intriguing The Banner Saga.

Combat Wings: Great Battles Of WWII Is Pretty

RATATATATATATATATTTAAAAT!

Shine the Tim Stone light onto the clouds! (It’s the shape of a tank with wings.) The sequel to 2009’s Combat Wings: Battle Of Britain, this time expanding to Combat Wings: The Great Battles Of World War II (maybe it’s just me, but I didn’t think the battles were that great) has a fancy new trailer, and ten completely gorgeous screenshots.
