Syberia 3: Free DLC "An Automaton with a Plan" Available Soon - 10/31/17 10:25 AM

Syberia 3: The DLC "An Automaton with a Plan" available from November 9th.

Play as Oscar and unravel the mystery of Kate Walker's disappearance!


Quote:
Paris, October 31th, 2017 – From November 9th, players will once again be able to dive into the enchanted world of Benoit Sokal with the Syberia 3 DLC "An Automaton with a Plan", free for everyone who already owns the game on PC, and for all on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

An Automaton with a Plan is a brand-new chapter in the story of Kate Walker's adventures in Syberia 3, but it is recommended that players finish the game first before enjoying the DLC.

This additional content takes place after Kate Walker and the Youkol tribe come across the ruins of Olympia Stadium. During these previously-undocumented events, Kate is kidnapped by the tenacious private detective, Nic Cantin, who has been tasked with bringing her back to New York by hook or by crook. You play as the automaton, Oscar, who sets out to free her. A seemingly simple mission for Oscar, who develops an infallible plan to accomplish it. But matters turn out to be more complicated than foreseen…


About Syberia 3:
The story begins when a dying Kate is rescued in the middle of Siberia by the Youkol tribe, nomads accompanying the ancient migration of their great snow ostriches to the sacred steppes, the ostriches' mating ground. Feeling that she owes the Youkols her life, Kate decides to help them continue their journey. Together, they discover places that are as enchanting as they are dangerous, such as Valsembor, irradiated Baranour, and the mysterious lake, which some say is haunted, that separates the two cities.


Syberia 3 was developed by Koalabs Studio. The game is fully dubbed in French, English, German, Polish, Russian, Spanish, and subtitled in French, English, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Polish, Russian, Czech, Korean, and Simplified and Traditional Chinese. The game's original soundtrack is handled by Inon Zur (Fallout 4, Dragon Age, Prince of Persia), already in command on Syberia 2. The game and its DLC can be played with the mouse, keyboard/mouse, or controller. The game is rated PEGI 12/T for Teens.


Happy Gaming!

Thanks for the news Sheriff

I wonder, will this be automatically updated on Steam or will we have to do something? I can't remember if any of my games on Steam had DLC so I am not sure what I will have to do.

I’ve seen it both ways, greyfuss, so I am not positive either way. The ones I’ve persobslky give fir previous games were a separate download on the same store page. It depends on how microids chooses to handle. If I had to get on it, I’d say separate.

Hey there all,

I just had a question when I saw this post.

I was looking to get this game until I heard it had a
Click to reveal..
cliffhanger ending. Does this DLC take place after the game's ending?


Just wondering. I love the series and would love to play this one?

Going by what the description says...

... it seems to be inserted into some time in the middle of the game, not at the end.

Maybe someone else remembers where the "ruins of Olympia Stadium" would be. It may be a new area that was left out of the original release of the game.

Hi all,

I have a dumb question, I guess. What is DLC???

This area is near the end of the game. There was only one more area after the Olympia Stadium area [
Click to reveal..
The Bridge Crossing
.


I don't see how they are going to make the change due to the present ending unless this was a nightmare dream of Kate's.

Until then,

Take care all!

Mr. Bill

PS: Will they ever let me finish this walkthrough????

DLC = downloadable content wave

Sometimes "DLC" means "restored content" -- something they cut from the original game due to time constraints or whatever.

Since they're not charging for it, it may be worth getting if you already have the game.

But as Marian stated, the initials "DLC stand for "DownLoadable Content.

Thank you for the clarification about where the "inserted content" will be.
I guess you'll have to add to your walkthrough.

I'm not sure why they say:
Quote:
it is recommended that players finish the game first before enjoying the DLC.

Wouldn't that be doing things out of order?

Maybe they are saying you will now have two different endings.

As much as people would like an alternative to the stinking cliffhanger, I think that's wishful thinking. A DLC does not replace existing content.

I haven't played the game yet. (I'm currently enjoying a replay of the first game.) Maybe they want you to play it afterwards to help you forget there is a cliffhanger ending.

I wonder if you download it all at one time if it does insert into the game then, if that is how they are suggesting it, or do they think you would play the DLC first??

Winfrey, that answers Greyfuss's earlier question whether this is an update or separate. If it was an update, the spoiler wouldn't be necessary. It will be a standalone DLC.

GOG now has Syberia 3 here.

And it's available for $14.99 until November 13th. It also includes the new DLC.

Mine is on Steam... I started Steam and went to my library.. when I clicked on Syberia3 it showed it was downloading an update.... after it finished downloading(mine took over an hour but I have a very slow internet) I clicked the Icon on my desktop the game started and my options were to continue(as I am still playing the game) or the last option is Downloadable content..... I will click on that now as I just finished the game.
Hope this helps...

OK, thanks Winfrey. I'm not ready to play Syberia 3 yet so I don't really want to click on it yet. Going to start my replay of game 2 this weekend.
