New Broken Sword game announced
Fourth iteration of Revolution's adventure
game series coming to PCs next summer.
Although originally planned to be a trilogy of
games, the Broken Sword series is getting a fourth installment
thanks to fan enthusiasm, THQ announced. The as-yet-untitled
adventure game will be released for the PC in summer 2006.
The Broken Sword series kicked off in 1996
with the PC release of Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars
(called Circle of Blood in the US). The three games in the
adventure series have seen releases on a variety of platforms
besides the PC, including the PlayStation, Game Boy Advance,
PlayStation 2, and Xbox.
The fourth game will see hero George Stobbart
fall in love with a mysterious woman. The damsel's disappearance
draws George into an international search for a powerful
artifact to save the world once again. Interestingly, the
announcement made no mention of George's longtime
sidekick-cum-heroine Nico Collard, suggesting that she may not
make an appearance in the new game.
