Stepping Back Into Union City: Revolution Software’s cyberpunk adventure ‘Beyond a Steel Sky’ is out now on PC. Play from today… and pick up the original Beneath a Steel Sky in the process.


Check out the trailer here.

Quote
York, 26th July 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 now available on PC at Steam. Beyond a Steel Sky will retail for $34.99/£29.99/€29.99, with consumers able to take advantage of a 20% launch week discount.

Utilising the talents of legendary comic book artist Dave Gibbons (co-creator and artist behind seminal graphic novel Watchmen) once again, 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.

To celebrate its launch on PC, Revolution Software can today announce gamers on Steam can pick up a special edition of Beyond a Steel Sky that includes both the original game Beneath a Steel Sky and the stunning soundtrack from the brand new release.

Beyond a Steel Sky stands as a thrilling story of loyalty and redemption set in an eerie 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.

“It’s great to be heading back into Union City after 26 years, though it’s important to note we’ve designed Beyond a Steel Sky to be just as welcoming to newcomers as to those fans who played the original release,” says Charles Cecil, Founder and CEO of Revolution Software. “Working on Beyond a Steel Sky has offered a lovely opportunity to team up with Dave Gibbons again and tell the next chapter in the story of Robert Foster - and Joey.”

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 only now is it the right time to write it.

“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 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 Steam from today. The game will retail for $34.99/£29.99/€29.99, with consumers also able to take advantage of a 20% launch week discount.



Happy Gaming!

Bought and downloaded. I very much liked the original, even many years after it was released.


Quantity has a quality all of its own

I want the game too, flotsam, but I don't use Steam.
(I thought the first game was really good 😬)

Me too. Will be quite a while though until I get to play it as I have quite a queue of games building up behind Song of Horror that I am very slowly getting through.

BaSS is free if you subscribe to Apple Arcade. I am playing it now on my iPad.

I must admit, that even though I have heard of Beneath A Steel Sky, I've never played it. It sounds rather good having read some reviews. Fortunately, I remembered that GOG gifted me the game ages ago, so I've downloaded it and will give it a bash soon.
