Long-Awaited Adventure Sequel Syberia III Arrives April 25



Quote
Adventure fans have been waiting for the third game in BenoÓt Sokalís classic point-and-click adventure series for so long that Iím not sure I can take the April 25 release date announced today at face value, but thatís when Syberia III is supposed to be out on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

The story of American lawyer Kate Walker and the search for the mythical Russian island of Syberia (where the mammoths still live) began in 2002, when Microids released the first chapter of her adventure on PC. The game, developed by Microids under the direction of Belgian comic artist and game designer BenoÓt Sokal, received much praise, leading to ports for PlayStations, Xboxes, mobile devices and even a horrible Nintendo DS port.

Kate Walkerís journey continued in 2004's Syberia II, which was very pretty and had an excellent story but was kind of short. The ending of the second game came rather abruptly, leaving players to wonder about the fate of Kate Walker for more than a decade.

But now itís back, hopefully. Syberia III begins with Kate Walker found left for dead by a nomadic tribe of snow ostrich farmers. This time the game is in full 3D, so the snow ostriches will really pop, and Inon Zur is doing the soundtrack, so itíll sound as nice as it looks.

I never really got into the Syberia games, but I think a lot of adventure game fans hold them in high regard.

BTW, I saw that Bundle Stars just put up a bundle today where you can get 25 games (including Syberia 1 + 2) for $5:  https://www.bundlestars.com/en/bundle/microids-mega-bundle-30th-anniversary

I played a bit of the first one but got annoyed at the classic adventure system.  You know what I mean, wander around pick up some random stuff but not other random stuff, encounter a puzzle, try everything in inventory on it and maybe luck out...repeat.

However I thought the story was cool.
