Montreuil (France), August 23th, 2013. As the Gamescom - the most important annual video game exhibition - is taking place in Cologne, Microïds announces the development of the last episode of one of the most successful sagas of its catalogue, "Dracula 5: The Blood Legacy".

Called "The Blood Legacy", this episode concludes Ellen Cross’ journey that began in "Dracula 4: The Shadow of the Dragon". Players will lift the veil on the series of mysterious paintings that she has discovered during her investigation.

This new adventure game begins where the previous opus of Ellen Cross’ journey had stopped. The art restorer who has nothing left to lose will not give up without clearing up this mystery. Fans of the supernatural and changes will enjoy once again the very particular atmosphere of this story where you can feel the control of the Prince of Darkness.

"Dracula 5: The Blood Legacy" takes the players all around the world until the end of a journey of mysteries, original and varied puzzle games and encounters with characters whose motivations are ambiguous.

Franck Berrois, Product Manager for "Dracula 5: The Blood Legacy" says “we are delighted to be able to reveal the outcome of Ellen Cross’ investigation that began in "Dracula 4". Players eager for explanations will still have to wait a bit more but will soon get all the answers to the mysteries on hold”.

"Dracula 4: The Shadow of the Dragon" is an adventure game released in July 2013 under the Microïds label on PC and Mac. Mobile versions (iOS and Android) will soon be released.

"Dracula 5: The Blood Legacy" is in development on PC/Mac/iOS/Android. Release is due for the 4th quarter of 2013.


Happy Gaming!

Thanks, Ana. smile

Hoping that Drac 5 is an improvement on Drac 4, which I found terribly disappointing. frown

Thanks for the info, BrownEyedTigre smile

I didn't get Drac 4. I decided to wait until Drac 5 was out as well. So I would have a "complete" game.

Hopefully 4 and 5 between them will give me a complete game ?? whistle

I hate to be a "party pooper". but if Drac 5 will be anything like Drac 4, I intend to skip it. HOWEVER, I'm trying to keep an open mind, so I'll follow the news about the new game.

I didn't get Drac4 either when I saw that it was part 1.

I've noticed a few other games that are split into parts. Are these episodic games becoming the future of PC adventure games?

I knew that Syberia and a few others were split up and re-issued, I am assuming for mobile devices and tablets and accommodating smaller file sizes.

But is this all we have to look forward to in the future - having to buy PC adventure games in 2 or 3 parts - that is - those of us who don't play games on mobile devices and prefer to have them on a desktop or laptop computer?

I haven't read any articles on the subject and was just curious?? I was interested in this Drac game till I saw the two parts and assumed it was a marketing plan to gain more revenue by selling 2 smaller games instead of 1 large game.

It's really up to the developer LadyCav. Sometimes budgets do not allow for a full long adventure so they break it up into manageable smaller episodes.

Thank you very kindly, Ana, for taking the time to answer my question.

That gives me hope that not all games will necessarily become episodic in the future. I'll wait for reviews on this upcoming Drac5 to decide whether to purchase both games.

I'm glad to hear they're proceeding with releasing Dracula 5 and not just leaving those of us who played it dangling (like a few other companies).

I heard today that its release is imminent so hopefully it will be very soon. I believe it is a straight continuation from Dracula 4 rather than an episodic type game where different stories and characters are introduced.

There were a few disappointing features to Dracula 4 that I hope are improved on. I hope the length is much longer than Dracula 4, the characters are not like wooden statues and I hope the characters speak with some lip sync and facial expressions; all of these were lacking in Dracula 4.
