Montreal Studio Set to "Reveal" the Next Title in the Myst® Franchise


SAN FRANCISCO - April 5, 2004 - Ubisoft, one of the world's largest videogame publishers, today revealed the critically acclaimed and best-selling Myst® franchise will launch its newest adventure, Myst® IV Revelation, this fall. Peter Gabriel, world-renowned recording artist, worked in collaboration with award-winning composer Jack Wall to create the game's immersive and ambient soundtrack.

"We are excited to announce Myst IV Revelation and proud that it comes from our own Ubisoft Montreal studios," said Laurent Detoc, president of Ubisoft Inc. "Myst IV Revelation will only add to the strength of the Myst franchise, which continues to lead the Adventure category in critical acclaim, fan following, and sales."

Within the visually awe-inspiring world of Myst, a gripping family drama will slowly unfold. A little girl disappears, her two brothers are suspected, and it is clear that their story is far from over. Players will escape into the adventure as they attempt to solve the mystery and discover the fate of the two villainous brothers, Sirrus and Achenar. Understanding their motives is the key to the investigation which will lead to a true "revelation."

"Myst IV Revelation will take players into the twisted minds and worlds of two evil brothers, deep inside an intense family drama, and immerse them within a visually stunning environment," said Genevieve Lord, producer at Ubisoft. "The game is simply a 'must-have' for Myst fans and will also appeal to new players. The storyline is very suspenseful, the puzzles are compelling, and the music, produced by Jack Wall in partnership with Peter Gabriel, will create an unparalleled experience."

Additional launch details and information will be announced at a later date; however, please feel free to visit http://www.mystrevelation.com

[/QUOTE]Thanks for sleuthing out the site launch this morning, Jenny. bravo

So now the chatter starts up on the next Myst title. 2004 just gets better and better for gamers. happydance

I hope the panning in the game is easier to control than in that little "example" they have on that page. It will be interesting to see how this game turns out. I'm glad they're continuing the series.

I hope they make it cross platform right up front. It looks like it's going to be good.

What exactly does "launch" mean? Launching is usually the term for starting something that is ongoing, like Uru was supposed to be. Or do they just mean they are "releasing" it then?

It's going to be interesting to see how they deal with the brothers coming back. I was under the impression from MYST that they were, how can I put this...toast! I mean the book holders that their trap books sat on had burn marks on them after Atrus linked back to the library to "take care of something"...

My thoughts also Trail-Mystic. Will be captivating to see how that story gets opened.

Right LoneWolf, Ubi-Soft will "launch" (or release, HURL b : to release, catapult, or send off (a self-propelled object) <launch a rocket>) Myst IV this fall.

So I suppose they will "throw" it at us then wink

Thanks Jenny100 - nah the link they provided re-directs itself. I just had the close quote command too close to the URL link. It does something weirrd to it if you don't have a space.

I think a prison book is a link to a place from which they can't return. However, if they had the materials to create a linking book to another place...

Really nice news - I thought it wouldn't be 'til forever that Myst 4 would be ready. And how could both of the brothers get out? Weren't they in separate prison ages and not getting along? Should be an interesting story and a great game thumbsup

Just so you know, there is a puzzle on the site. If you solve it, you get to open the bonus page. Of course, in my "puzzle limited" fashion, someone had to tell me this.

I managed to solve it, though I don't know how. I thought I knew how I did it, but then, when I went to do it again, it didn't work!

The announcement I read said it is about a 'young' Sirrus and Achenar, thay haven't been trapped in the books on Myst Island yet.

Maybe it will include some of the dirty deeds they did to poor old Saavedro's family and world.

That sound track just gives me the shivers, GOOD shivers.

I think it's a prequel to Myst.
It could be interesting. How did the sons of people like Atrus and Catherine wind up so rotten?
