Revolution Software have announced that they are bringing their hugely popular Broken sword game to Xbox one. Broken Sword 5: The Serpents Curse will be an enhanced version to what is already released on PC, Apple and Android devices. It is set to be released this Summer and I couldn’t be happier as i haven’t played these episodes yet. Especially playing the whole series growing up this is going to bring back some great memories :).
Broken Sword 5 started as a Kickstarter campaign and was an instant hit and reached its goal in only 13 days. Revolution is now working on bringing George and Nico’s latest adventure to next-gen consoles. Digital versions will be published by Revolution through the Xbox Games Store. Retail versions, which will include the game’s introduction as a graphic novel, will be distributed throughout Europe and EMEA by Ravenscourt.
Charles Cecil, Founder & CEO of Revolution Software has said in a statement “We are delighted to bring Broken Sword 5 to PS4 and Xbox One – with enhancements over the other versions including additional animation and audio, a character gallery section and many console-specific enhancements. The Broken Sword games have a proud history on previous PlayStation and Xbox consoles. There is such a loyal following for the Broken Sword games, as demonstrated by the 15,000 fans who backed the original Kickstarter campaign – it’s fantastic to now be able to bring the game to all those console owners who have requested that we write the game for their favorite platform”
