Independent publisher Microids announced tonight that Syberia: The World Before will be released in March on PC. A console release will follow later this year.
Two destinies are intertwined by the unfolding of the story. A time lag of almost 70 years tells the story of two women. On the one hand, it is 17-year-old Dana Roze, who lives in 1937 in the fictional state of Vaghen. In fact, she wishes to establish herself as a star pianist, but the brown shadow extends to Europe. World War II is imminent.
The second protagonist of Syberia: The World Before is Kate Walker, who lives in 2004. She is a forced laborer in a salt mine located in the taiga. In a moment of great tragedy, an opportunity opens up for Kate to go in search of her identity.
In the game, we immerse ourselves in the two storylines and have to update the mysteries of the two decades. Intricate puzzles and riddles must be solved in this point-and-click adventure game to get deeper into the story.
Syberia: The World Before is the fourth installment in a series of successful video games, born from the pen of Belgian author Benoît Sokal. He had planned to finish the story of the heroine Kate Walker at the end of the second part. But Microids added two more parts to the story. In the spring of last year, Sokal died after a long illness.
On March 18, 2022, Syberia: The World Before will be released on PC. A console release is planned for later this year. Another project from the publisher is the detective title Agatha Christie – Hercule Poirot: The First Cases.
