Forget Half-Life; if you really want to see a series with a long-overdue sequel look towards Syberia. The third game is set to release next month – only thirteen years after the previous Syberia 2.
The developer, Microïds, have been rumoured to have been working on Syberia 3 since late 2008. The game was originally set out for a 2010 release date but was subsequently delayed due to in-team negotiations and an apparent takeover from French publisher Anuman. However, later down the line in 2011, team head Benoît Sokal stated that work had not even began yet – leading to questions over the future of the series.
Syberia 3 is set to finally release however – and Microïds have released the below trailer for proof. It will continue the story of protagonist Kate Walker as she continues to travel through Europe and Russia. The trailer shows off everything you’d expect from an adventure/point-and-click mash-up: slow walking, slightly janky-looking puzzles and an odd lack of lighting.
Syberia 3 is set to release for PC, PS4 and Xbox One on April 20 in Europe and April 25 in North America. A Nintendo Switch version is planned for later in the year and Android/iOS versions are expected.
