Syberia: The World Before | The Legacy of Benoit Sokal
Unfortunately, the main creative behind the title will not be able to attend its launch; Benoit Sokal, creator of the saga and designer of the new and imminent installment, passed away last May at the age of 66. The history of the game – which is divided into two parts – has been written by both him and Lucas Lagravete, according to the official synopsis shared by Microids.
On this occasion, Dana Roze and Kate Walker will be the protagonists of an odyssey across several continents, in which time travel will be a key piece of history. The editor assures that we will live a traditional experience, in which the beautiful landscapes will not be lacking, a plot full of mysteries and classic mechanics faithful to the origins of the franchise. In addition, the soundtrack is provided by Inon Zur (Fallout, Dragon Age, Prince of Persia …)
Syberia: The World Before will be available on December 10 on PC. The console version (platforms not specified at the moment) will follow suit sometime in 2022.
