Return to Union City: Revolution Software’s cyberpunk adventure ‘Beyond a Steel Sky’ hits Apple Arcade tomorrow with PC to follow in July


Quote
York, 25th June 2020 - ‬Revolution Software is excited to announce Beyond a Steel Sky - the long-awaited follow-up to classic ‘90s dystopian cyberpunk adventure Beneath a Steel Sky - is available tomorrow on Apple Arcade. The game will also launch on Steam in July.

Tapping up the talents of legendary comic book artist Dave Gibbons (co-creator and artist behind seminal graphic novel Watchmen) once more, Revolution’s Beyond a Steel Sky gives players the opportunity to take their first steps inside Union City for the first time since dystopian cyberpunk adventure Beneath a Steel Sky back in 1994.

Beyond a Steel Sky stands as a thrilling story of loyalty and redemption set in an eery and terrifying world of AI-driven social controls. As can be expected of a Revolution adventure, the tale is woven with the studio's signature humour, supported by Gibbons' acclaimed artistic style.

“I am so pleased to have had the opportunity to team up with Dave Gibbons again and take Robert Foster back to Union City after all these years.” says Charles Cecil, Founder and CEO of Revolution Software”. This is an adventure game that should prove just as welcoming to newcomers as it does those loyal gamers who took on the original 26 years ago. We are particularly thrilled to be leading on Apple Arcade - with the PC version debuting on Steam shortly.

“Revolution has built an excellent reputation for writing intelligent adventure games that combine high drama with humor - leaving players not sure whether to laugh, gasp or both,” says Dave Gibbons. “ I am thrilled with how Beyond a Steel Sky has turned out - it surpasses my expectations in every way”.

Beyond a Steel Sky is a hugely ambitious adventure in which intelligent, humorous emergent gameplay drives an edgy narrative. Very much an adventure, the game is set in a dynamic world that will respond to – and be subverted by – the player’s actions. The game characters, driven by advanced AI tech, are willful and motivated: their intelligent responses allow interesting, emergent solutions to puzzles and obstacles. The culmination of Revolution’s 30 years of developing adventure games, Beyond a Steel Sky evolves and redefines the adventure genre.

It's a project that's been on the minds of both Cecil and Gibbons for many years, but one they felt needed the right real world moment to do it justice.

Beyond a Steel Sky features:

A unique, rich game experience interwoven with a deep narrative.

A story that enables players to meaningfully effect and subvert the gameworld and its characters.

Elegantly simple, intuitive controls that allow complex situations to emerge, offering a gameplay experience that will appeal to the novice as well as the experienced gamer.

Custom-written cutting-edge graphics technology delivers a beautiful, realtime, comic-book-styled world in HDR & 4K to complement the artwork of Dave Gibbons.

Original motion comic book created by Dave Gibbons.


Beyond a Steel Sky is available on Apple Arcade from tomorrow. It will also launch on Steam in July


Happy Gaming!
