Like your turn-based strategy RPGs devastatingly bleak? Me too, chums. So it's good news, because the first trailer from the sequel to The Banner Saga, the none-more-Nordic game of combat and crushing heartbreak, looks as grim and icy as ever. "No matter how difficult the decisions, or how painful they might be, I give you my word, my oath, we will survive" intone the boy-girl narrators simultaneously. Not with me at the helm they probably won't. Sadly there's no release date for The Banner Saga 2 yet, but just knowing work is progressing on it makes me happy. In an all things must die eventually sort of way.

With over two decades covering videogames, Tim has been there from the beginning. In his case, that meant playing Elite in 'co-op' on a BBC Micro (one player uses the movement keys, the other shoots) until his parents finally caved and bought an Amstrad CPC 6128. These days, when not steering the good ship PC Gamer, Tim spends his time complaining that all Priest mains in Hearthstone are degenerates and raiding in Destiny 2. He's almost certainly doing one of these right now.
