THE THIRD TITLE OF CULT ADVENTURE GAME SERIES SYBERIA UNVEILED AT THE 2015 GAMESCOM EXHIBIT

 

Microïds is about to unveil the first sequences of Syberia 3, as well as the first musical themes composed by Inon Zur during the European greatest video game exhibit. The game is being developed on Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC and Mac.


Still guided by its author and artistic director, Benoit Sokal, the third episode of Kate Wlaker’s journey takes place adrift on a makeshift craft. By chance, the youkol caravan that she had come across in Syberia 2 finds her before she passes away. Determined to run away from their common ennemy, Kate decides to help the nomads with their ancestral singular tradition: accompany the snow ostriches transhumance to the sacred steppes to breed. This adventure through charming scenery and a devastated city will take the young heroin in an utmost dangerous and wonderful journey with many enemies hot on their heels...


 

 

As the 2015 Gamescom exhibit arrives, Syberia 3 unveils a bit more with a few new screenshots from the current version in development.

 

 

 

 


For the first time in full 3D, Syberia 3 has been created with gameplay mechanics meant for PC and for new generation consoles (PS4 and Xbox One), so that the players can enjoy greater freedom to explore the wonderful scenery and cities to thwart their mysteries and puzzles as never in the saga.

 

 

 

 

 

 

It all began with a pencil…

The saga’s specificity lies in its artistic wealth that Benoit Sokal brings when he revisits the real world with a mysterious and magical disharmony where mechanics peculiar to the steampunk trend are ever-present. In a context where all the creation and post-production work is often entirely digitalized, Benoit Sokal’s distinctive feature is to use classical pencil and water colour methods so that he can create his own universe, places and characters, as well as some of the gameplay mechanics.


The first tracks from Syberia 3 will be played during the Video Games Live concerts on August 7,8 and 9 (evenings) during the Gamescom exhibit. Composer Inon Zur (Fallout 3 & 4, Dragon Age…) will be on stage at the official opening to present his new creations.

 

 

 

 


"Syberia 3" is due to be released in 2016 on Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC and Mac in French, English, German, Italian and Spanish.
