Syberia: The World Before was announced today by Microids and Benoît Sokal, which is a new entry into the adventure game franchise, and takes places two years after the release of the last episode. Once again, players will take command of Kate Walker, as she deals with a brand-new investigation. We will go across continents and through time periods, to experience a journey rooted in the turmoil of the twentieth century. More information will be announced soon such as the release date, platforms and more.
“Two years after the release of the last episode, we understand that fans are curious and eager to discover the next installment of the adventure from our much-loved Kate Walker. The game is already under development and we are delighted to be reunited with Benoît Sokal’s unique universe. This latest adventure will offer fans of the series a chance to learn more about our heroine and re-immerse themselves in the atmosphere of the first games,” says Elliot Grassiano, Vice-President at Microïds.
“Today, I’m very happy to be able to continue Kate’s journey and share this adventure once again with the team at Microïds. I hope to give the fans a story with an atmosphere that’s just as mysterious as the previous episodes, with even more automatons to operate, puzzles to solve and unusual characters to meet. I can’t wait to share more of my world and the game’s progress with you.” adds Benoît Sokal, Artistic Director and author of the story.
