Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse – Episode One dated for PC, Mac & Linux

Tuesday, 5th November 2013 09:14 GMT By Dave Cook

Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse – Episode One has been dated for PC by developer Revolution. There will be two episodes in all, concluding in January.

We’ve got a trailer for the game here if you missed it first time round.

In a press release sent to VG247 this morning, Revolution confirmed that the first episode will launch on PC, Mac and Linux via Steam, GOG and the studio’s own website on December 4. It’ll cost £9.99 at launch, but you can buy both episodes together for £14.99.

The game was funded on Kickstarter to the tune of $850,000 and will also see release on PS Vita, iOS and Android.

In a statement, Revolution CEO Charles Cecil said, “Whilst this is very much a classic Broken Sword game in terms of production values and sense of adventure, we’re really breaking new ground with The Serpent’s Curse.

“The success of our Kickstarter appeal has allowed us to be hugely ambitious – each episode is a full sized game in its own right. So we will be publishing two action-packed adventures in close succession. The response to those that have seen the game so far has been hugely positive – some suggesting that this is the best Broken Sword yet.”

    Exited for this. Very very exited indeed.
    Unfortunately wasn’t able to chip in the Kickstarter project due to many reasons but they will definitely get a chunk of my money.. I mean I did buy Broken Sword for PC and PSX, BS 2 and 3 for PC, got BS Director’s cut for PC and DS (in case I wanna play BS on the train :) ) Thinking of it, shame the Original game for the PSX wasn’t released on the Playstation store, would buy it right this instead…. As I said… Exited for this :)

    why don’t they just get a new sword man.. i mean 5 games and it’s still a “broken sword” it should have been a “shiny new sword” by now.

    Same thing as Double Fine then, breaking it into two and delaying the second part. I might be wrong, but all the previous updates on the Kickstarter (as recently as a week ago) suggested the whole game would be released before Xmas.

    Nico!
    Is there any actual date for the iOS release? I prefer to play this on the go.

    @3 This is what happens when they have no publishers to answer to.

    Previously, they’d have to cut so much of the content out to meet deadlines.

    With Kickstarter, this doesn’t apply. Now the question is, is it a good thing that all this content stays, or would it just be stuff that we wouldn’t care about anyway.
