Today, Microïds invited players to take a look at the first work in progress of upcoming point-and-click adventure game ‘Syberia 3′ at Gamescom 2014.
“Syberia 3″ visual universe is finally taking shape in the game’s graphic engine including the talent of its artistic director, Benoit Sokal (”Amerzone”, “Canardo”, “Kraa”…). Working with Microïds allowed the creation of one of the most acclaimed series by the adventure game fans. This new cooperation promises to have them relive an unforgettable moment. Until then, the team is glad to be able to share those first screenshots that represent the moment when Kate Walker – the saga’s iconic heroin – discovers the Youkol camp.
Syberia 3 begins exactly where Syberia 2 had left Kate: in a bad situation. Miraculously taken in by the travelling Youkol people, the lawyer from New York will learn about their culture by interacting with the tribesmen gathered in a huge market-like camp. She will guide them in their transhumance with the snow ostriches, a journey that appears to be very complicated this time.
Elliot Grassiano, VP at Microïds reports “It is filled with emotion that we share with the saga fans those very first screenshots of Syberia 3, more than ten years after Syberia 2 was released. We have been working for more than a year and a half on this ambitious title so that it meets the expectations of the passionate gamers of this adventure game. Seeing this unique universe imagined by Benoit Sokal take shape for the first time in full real-time 3D strongly increases the team’s motivation.”
“Syberia 3″ is due to release on PC, Mac, PS4, Xbox One, iOS and Android in 2015.
