Cliffhanger ending to Revolution’s greatest adventure – will be concluded January 2014

You can view screenshots here.

Quote:
Revolution Software has today confirmed that Broken Sword 5 - The Serpent’s Curse will release worldwide for PC on December 4th. In addition, the developer has revealed that this Broken Sword adventure will, unlike any before, run over two thrilling episodes, concluding in January 2014.

The game set crowdfunding records for a UK-developed game back in September 2012, when it raised $850,000 from 15,000 backers on Kickstarter. Those that pledged to receive a PC, Mac or Linux copy of the game will get each episode as it become available.

The first episode will debut on PC / Mac / Linux through Steam, GOG.com, and Revolution’s own website store on December 4th, with a PlayStation Vita version to follow later in the month. The concluding episode of the game will be published on PC in January 2014. iOS and Android versions will follow shortly after each PC episode.

“Whilst this is very much a classic Broken Sword game in terms of production values and sense of adventure, we’re really breaking new ground with The Serpent’s Curse,” says Charles Cecil, Founder & CEO, Revolution Software. “The success of our Kickstarter appeal has allowed us to be hugely ambitious – each episode is a full sized game in its own right. So we will be publishing two action-packed adventures in close succession. The response to those that have seen the game so far has been hugely positive – some suggesting that this is the best Broken Sword yet.”

When a mysterious painting is stolen during an armed raid on a Paris gallery, George Stobbart and Nico Collard are thrown, seemingly by chance, into the investigation together. From Paris to London and beyond, the trail becomes a race against time as dark forces from Europe's turbulent past are woken from their slumber. Broken Sword characters old and new are encountered - but who can George and Nico trust? The journey they are on reveals a conspiracy as old as the written word, whose ancient heresies will cause innocent blood to spill once more...

A classic point and click that feels utterly contemporary, Broken Sword 5 - The Serpent’s Curse has re-united key members from the Broken Sword team, with layout artists from studios such as Disney, Aardman, and Universal who have created sumptuous, classically drawn backgrounds. The rich, lavish HD art, evolves the art-style so loved in the previous Broken Sword games.

Episode 1 will be released on December 4th for PC, priced £9.99 per episode / £14.99 if both episodes are bought together. Price and release dates for other formats to be confirmed.

Broken Sword 5: the Serpent´s Curse - The Adventure Continues

About Broken Sword 5: the Serpent´s Curse

Paris in the spring. Shots ring out from a gallery…
A robbery – a murder – and the beginning of another epic, original Broken Sword adventure.

An adventure that will hurl intrepid lawyer George Stobbart and sassy journalist Nico Collard onto the trail of a murderous conspiracy forged in the cauldron of war-torn Europe. A conspiracy whose roots lie in mysteries older than the written word.

Armed only with logic, integrity and a wry sense of humour - can George and Nico outwit evil forces both ancient and modern and save mankind from disaster? From a Curse forged by the Devil himself?

Broken Sword is one of the world´s best loved adventure series, having been played by over 10 million players and earned exceptional reviews (including a Metacritic score of 91% for Broken Sword – Director’s Cut – iPhone). Broken Sword 5 – the Serpent’s Curse builds on this rich heritage.


Happy Gaming!

Only a month to go. I can hardly wait.

Two episodes a month apart is better than 4 episodes stretching out over a year but I'm still not wild about episodic games.

There was an exclusive boxed version for those that pledged 100 dollars or more in the Kickstarter campaign. I only know of confirmed downloads at this time for all others. I do know the PS Vita will be download only and not retail.

Yaaay! Tho I'm not generally wild about episodic games as the episodes are always short, this sounds good. Full length episode gives you something to get your teeth into. Short ones have the feel of a casual game. Really looking forward to this one. thumbsup

I believe episode 1 will be released on the 4th December, and episode 2 in January 2014. Available from Steam and GOG. Can't find anything about a box version, only download. wave

Upsydaisy,

Backers at the $100 level get a boxed special edition of the game.
Could be they'll offer it for sale later if digital sales of Broken Sword: The Serpent's Curse take off.

Gil.

If the game is DRM FREE, you'll be able to burn both episodes to disk - which is what I intend to do happydance
