There is an live launch party at 6pm BST today here.

The game releases at the same time.

Quote:
George and Nico wrap up their greatest adventure yet
The wait is over as multi award-winning developer Revolution Software has today confirmed the eagerly awaited Broken Sword 5 – the Serpent’s Curse: Episode Two will go live today at 6pm, concluding the studio’s most ambitious Broken Sword game to date.

Broken Sword 5 – The Serpent’s Curse: Episode Two will be available on PC, Mac and Linux, priced £18.99 for both episodes.

Click here to view the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIHGgJwzGtE

People can play the point and click adventure in glorious HD from day one, adventuring through a variety of exotic locations: the game bursts out from Paris and London, taking the player on to stunning locations throughout Spanish Catalonia and to deepest Iraq, the birthplace of civilisation.

“We were delighted with the reception Episode One received from the games’ fans.” says Charles Cecil, founder, Revolution Software. “Episode Two takes the gameplay to another level – those who have already experienced Episode One will revel in the conclusion to the tale, while new gamers can enjoy the game in its entirety.

“Episode two ramps up the level of drama, as well as the difficulty level, as the game progresses: the second part starting with George and Nico having to dodge shotgun fire – with George then meeting his ultimate nemesis – a belligerent goat!

“I am extremely proud of the game and delighted that we have had the opportunity to build a direct relationship with our fans. The release of the game represents the conclusion of an amazing journey in self-funding, through the generosity of our Kickstarter backers, and to publishing the game under the Revolution brand.”

At 6pm this afternoon , Broken Sword 5 – the Serpent’s Curse: Episode Two will be available for PC, Linux and Mac from Steam, GOG.com and Get Games, priced £18.99. Episode Two on PlayStation Vita, iOS and Android will be available shortly.


Happy Gaming!

Thanks for that news BrownEyedTigre! - I'm feeling very spoilt as there are quite a few great new releases & just wish I had the budget to match but I'm definitely buying both episodes of that even if I have to starve for a week! lol

What time zone is this referring to? Is it 6:00 for whatever time zone or if it's say 6:00 EST it would be 3:00 Arizona time. So as I'm in Arizona can I get the game at 3:00 or do I have to wait till 6:00?

Rgards,

Barry

We have 4 time zones in the US so it's different for many of us. Anyone can convert the time here.

Bottom line is, the game is out now.

Great news. I'm downloading as I type, unfortunately, I've been having trouble with my DSL and I am only getting about 3.5 speeds right now and it is supposed to be close to 5. (Don't understand exactly what the numbers mean but I'm sure some more tech savvy person will and this is the fastest speed available in my area). Anyway my download speed showing from GOG is averaging 3.5 kB/s and you have to re-download Episode 1 along with Episode 2 so the total download is 6.7GB.

So I will be starting the game in a few hours.

Do you have to play all of the first one. It's been a while since I played the first one so I looked at the WT and it started at the beginning of the WT.

You should not Richard. All the other download places seem to be working fine but those that used GoG are experiencing your issue. I'll keep you posted if I find a solution. I would contact them in the meantime though because it's their issue.

I was a "backer" and have just downloaded from GOG without any problems smile

However, I discovered that there wasn't a Part One and a Part Two as I had expected - just the whole "Broken Sword 5" game.

For me that was straight forward because I had waited until the whole game was available before I downloaded anything.

BUT I can understand the frustrations of those who downloaded Part One when IT was made available because, apart from at the forum related to the game, I couldn't find any information as to why only the whole game is now being offered as a download.

And at the forum there are a lot of people venting their displeasure about that !! rolleyes

EDIT :

I just went back to GOG and the advice at the forum appears to be to back up any saves from a previous play of Part One, then uninstall that Part One and download the full game that's now being offered.
Apparently quite a lot of technical changes have been made and that is why only the full game download is now available.
It does sound, though, as if saves made during the that original Part One will work with this new full game download.

[There are six "items" to download but with superfast Broadband the whole thing took less than hour for me.]

That's what I thought Mad that there was to be Part One and a Part Two. When I first start a new game it looked like the beginning of part 2 but when it ended it went to part 1. I played part 1 when it first came out and I don't want to play it again. At least you didn't play part 1 and you can play it. I hope GOG can come up with a fix. I'm playing the game on another pc so I won't have any saves from part 1.

That's a pity, kjos, that you don't have access to your previous saves because it appears they could probably turn out to be at least in part a saving grace for some folk ....

Maybe you could get a suitable save from the original Part One sent to you from someone here at Gameboomers ??

I think the lack of plainly visible information at the download site has been pretty bad thumbsdown

I did the same "dumb" thing by deleting Episode 1 (including the saves), but who KNEW? Now I'm playing Episode 1 all over again.
Looking at the bright side, Episode 1 is not that long. I'm even enjoying it "the second time around". LOL

I have 8 saves from part one. I did not index them but if you want the last one or all of them just ask. I'll e-mail a zip file if you like

Maggie,

Just sign in and go to your games list. You can download any game in your list as many times as you want at no charge.
I had to do the same thing tonight.

Also it will recognize your saves if you played the first half. When I uninstalled the game I told it not to remove saves.

The saves are in a different folder than the installed game.

You can find them here. My Documents\Broken Sword 5

At least they did not bury them.

The problem with this game is it only has 8 save slots.

What you can do is copy the folder and paste it somewhere else to back it up.

Then when you start the game you can click continue and it will take you to where you left off. The game will make an auto save for you. As you play and make new saves you must overwrite your old save in the game folder. When you over write all eight simply copy them and place them somewhere else to back them up. Number the folders 1-2-3 and so on. that way if you replay and want to use your old saves you won't be limited to the last eight you made while playing the first time.

This is the email I got back from GOG. Can anybody figure it out. I have no idea what they are talking about. I figured it out got all of the saves.include the last one. Thank you Richard

Please use the save files from your previous playthrough to continue the story in the full game.
If you don't have save files you can try using these:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/106372714/Broken%20Sword%205.zip
Place the Broken Sword 5 directory from the archive in your My Documents directory.

Is there anyone who can confirm that when you install the new Mac version from gog, it still says everywhere it is episode 1?

The dmg file is definitely at least twice larger than before, but I cannot tell if this is the whole game or just episode 1 still?

Here is a message from the developer:

Quote:
Thank you so much for all your messages and support.
To be clear, Episode 2 is a free update for those have already bought Episode 1 on PC/Mac/Linux. Because of this you will need to continue the game from the last save - if you no longer have a save game then let us know at support@revolution.co.uk and we will send you one.
We are hearing reports that the GoG version is not running correctly from Episode 1 into Episode 2, and that the Mac version is yet to be made available. We are working with GoG to try and resolve these problems - we apologise for the delay. For Kickstarter backers who have yet to redeem the game at all, please log in to your backer panel via our new website here: http://accounts.revolution.co.uk/login

Oh God, I just played quite a lot, and possibly this is just episode 1.

And finding saved games on a Mac is usually quite a nightmare.

Thanks Ana!

Edit: Phew, I just found the saved games in the Library, Application Support then Broken Sword 5.

Samuel,
The game if bought now is played as one game (part 1 and 2 together).
As stated, the posted walkthrough is for part 1 only; part 2 will be added as soon as I replay and write. lol
Finished the game this afternoon. Life is calling!

dragon, if you've already bought and installed the first chapter of BS5 from Steam, then all you should need to do is run a game update and then continue with your save game from the end of chapter one. A forum member on Steam adds: "Set the update priority of the game to "high - ASAP" and then try to restart Steam.
if this doesn't work, you can only wait. the update should arrive eventually."

Hope that helps. luck

Although I haven't needed any help as I didn't download the game until both parts of it were finished and made available via GOG, I just wanted to say that as a "backer" I've had emails - from both Kickstarter and Revolution - offering saved games/assistance for BS5.

So it looks like help for those with problems IS definitely out there rah

I am playing Episode two with no problems I just overwrite the save like Rushes said and its fine. The only worry I have is that it will finish very quickly, does anyone know if it is a long episode, I just hate for it to end.

Together (1 & 2) it is of a reasonable game size. I think - 2 is longer than 1.

Imagine having "Broken Sword" WITHOUT that goat. NO WAY. The game would be a complete waste of time. LOL
Happy Gaming, Everybody.

You've got me, chrissie.
I was playing the game late last night and had the sound turned down to avoid having the neighbors banging on the walls so I really can't tell you.
Maybe she bleats or whatever goats do.
At any rate, Rolf Saxon is listed as giving her a voice and I did laugh when I saw that.
(Turns out, our evil friend is a she though I'd sure never have guessed; looks like a male to me.)

Yes. The goat bleats. Although only very briefly.
[It certainly doesn't "talk". Unless we meet it again later in the game than where I am - and it does then rolleyes]

It's much more interested in doing what goats like to do !! lol

Just about to finish episode 2 and I am dreading it.
George with Trevor the cockroach what an absolute hoot. I am still laughing when George said "Go Trevor Go "Plus he crawled back in the match box. Hilarious I hope there are some more moments like that.
Great game but not long enough and a bit to easy.I wish it was as long as The Sleeping Dragon.
George and Nico What a pair!!! roll the next one LOL

Played the whole of BS5 now and was SO pleased the developers treated us to the style of the two original Broken Swords. Felt just like meeting an old friend happydance

Enjoyed the game very much - despite a couple of spots where things really did get a little silly - but then there's nothing new about that happening in Adventure games snicker

What I'm certainly hoping now is Revolution will go on to give us an "original style" BS6 as well laugh

Well I also finished the game and the first question that popped into my head was

Click to reveal..
Did they eat the goat?


But all in all I thought it was a great game reminiscent of the original games. I'm glad they kept the feel of the original in this sequel. So.................Broken Sword 6?????

Just bought Broken Sword 5 and downloading now - not Broken Sword 4 although both came up as available downloads. Thanks for the info. regarding the "special" price - fantastic. Just one question, do I need to download Broken Sword 4 as well or is it incorporated in 5? I was going to get "4" previously but after reading the reviews thought it best to wait until "5" came out.

Jo.

If you want 4, Jo, go get it.
I've never played it but it's a very different game from BS1, 2 and 5 (which is why I'm not interested).
Five goes back to the world of the first two games and 4 is not incorporated in it at all.
Talk about comparing apples and kumquats....

Great thanks for the quick reply!! Actually I've just done the dumbest thing and bought Dracula 5 by mistake! Oh well, never mind, I have played Dracula 4 anyway but not 5 so it doesn't matter all that much - just a stupid thing to do though. crazy

John,

I'm afraid that they DID eat that poor goat. That means there WON'T be a sequel UNLESS they get another goat. LOL
