Microids and Benoît Sokal have announced the forthcoming release of a new episode in the iconic adventure game franchise Syberia. As the press release reads, the new Syberia game will be called Syberia: The world before.
This episode will invite us to follow the adventures of Kate Walker as she deals with a new investigation. This journey will take us across continents and through time periods to experience a journey rooted in the turmoil and tragedies of the twentieth century.
Syberia: The world before has been in development for 18 months. According to the devs, the game will bring the fans back to its unique atmosphere. Discover a scenario full of mystery, poetry and emotion. As always, the game will rely on travel and exploration, ingenious mechanisms to unlock and the art of Benoît Sokal. The game will also have dreamlike, snowy and enigmatic landscapes, as well as endearing and extravagant characters. Thus, Syberia: The world before should appeal to the series aficionados as well as the newcomers.
Elliot Grassiano, Vice-President at Microïds, said:
“Two years after the release of the last episode, we understand that fans are curious and eager to discover the next installment of the adventure from our much-loved Kate Walker. The game is already under development and we are delighted to be reunited with Benoît Sokal’s unique universe. This latest adventure will offer fans of the series a chance to learn more about our heroine and re-immerse themselves in the atmosphere of the first games.”
Benoît Sokal, Artistic Director and author of the story, added:
“Today, I’m very happy to be able to continue Kate’s journey and share this adventure once again with the team at Microïds. We want to give the fans a story with an atmosphere that’s just as mysterious as the previous episodes. With even more automatons to operate, puzzles to solve and unusual characters to meet. I can’t wait to share more of the game’s progress and universe with you.”
Unfortunately, Microids has not released any screenshots or trailer for this new adventure game. Moreover, we don’t have any ETA on when this new Syberia will come out.
