The Viking-themed tactical RPG The Banner Saga, releases tomorrow (Jan. 14th) at 1PM Eastern. If you’ve been searching for the best price online, you might have come across a $5 instant discount for the PC Download at the Steam Store, GameStop and other PC digital retailers. The $5 discount is nice but you can actually do one better. If you pre-order before the launch time at GameFly, there’s also a 20% off coupon code that’ll stack for a greater discount.
The Banner Saga preorder is only $15.99 at GameFly after coupon GFDJAN20. That makes it a full 36% off as a preorder vs. buying on the release day for the full $24.99 list price. GameFly’s January themed coupon works nearly sitewide and will run through the month of January.
The preorder instant savings bonus will end at 1PM Eastern tomorrow (The actual release time for The Banner Saga). Though you could order at Steam and get the game for $19.99, you might as well save the $4 extra bucks with GameFly’s coupon code since GameFly is selling the Steam version. Once the game releases and you’ve preordered, GameFly will email you a Steam Key. Once you have the key simply log into steam and at in the bottom left corner hit “Add a Game” followed by “Activate a Product on Steam…”. Then just enter the key in and it should start downloading.
Preorders also get the Insane Viking Pack, which includes an additional character, an ability item, and 3 additional tracks from the game’s score, matching some of the Kickstarter funded rewards if you missed out or didn’t hear about the game during its crowdfunding phase last year.
