Microïds and Benoit Sokal reveal new information about the upcoming game Syberia 3, which is due for launch on December 1st for Xbox One, PS4, PC and Mac, in a new video.
In the video entitled “Kate Walker’s New Journey”, Benoit Sokal and part of the development team unveil some aspects of the Syberia saga’s return that were never discussed before. It takes viewers behind the scenes of the game’s production and shows several sequences of the actual game itself. Though some of the visual, audio and voice rendering are still works in progress that may yet be altered, the team wanted to share a first glimpse of the title and of its scope with the community.
Another video, to be released very soon, will focus on certain important aspects of the world of Syberia, with particular emphasis on this new journey of Kate Walker’s.
As a reminder, this new episode of Kate Walker’s journey begins as she finds herself adrift on a makeshift craft. Fortunately, a caravan of the Youkol people, whom she had already encountered in Syberia 2, finds her before her life slips away. Determined to evade their common enemies, Kate decides to help the nomads fulfill the oddest of their ancestral traditions: accompanying the transhumance of the snow ostriches to the holy steppes where they can reproduce. The journey unfolds through scenery that is by turn enchanting and laid to waste, where the young woman will experience her most dangerous and wonderful adventures, with her pursuers always hot on her heels…
Rendered in full 3D for the first time ever, “Syberia 3″ was developed for the PS4 and Xbox One consoles as well as PC/Mac from its very inception, in order to offer players a new level of freedom to explore its beautiful landscapes and cities. And to allow them to unravel mysteries and enigmas in ways that have never been seen before in the saga.
