PC version hits December 4, PS Vita version later that month.

The first episode of Broken Sword: The Serpent’s Curse, Revolution Software’s point-and-click adventure game sequel, will launch for PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam, GOG.com, and Revolution’s web store on December 4, the company announced.

The PS Vita version will launch later in December. iOS and Android versions will also follow shortly after the PC release.

The final episode of the two-episode adventure title will be published on PC in January 2014. Each episode can be purchased for $14.99, or you can pay $24.99 for both.

Paris in the spring. Shots ring out from a gallery…

A robbery – a murder – and the beginning of another epic, original Broken Sword adventure.

An adventure that will hurl intrepid lawyer George Stobbart and sassy journalist Nico Collard onto the trail of a murderous conspiracy forged in the cauldron of war-torn Europe. A conspiracy whose roots lie in mysteries older than the written word.

Armed only with logic, integrity and a wry sense of humor – can George and Nico outwit evil forces both ancient and modern and save mankind from disaster? From a Curse forged by the Devil himself?

    Hefty price tag… hmm.

      Agreed

    • Sevyne

      Yeah, definitely a bit much.

      I’m actually okay with paying that for a new Broken Sword game (isn’t that about the price of Ace Attorney 5?), but I think for something like this it really depends on how much you like the genre/series.

        I’ve never played it. Hence the ‘hmm.’

        At that price, it’s quite the investment. Especially if I end up not liking it. And if I do, then I’ve wasted $5 by not getting the bundle.

          Hmm can cover a lot of things. :) In that case, if you have access to a computer, tablet, smartphone or DS/3DS then I’d recommend giving the first game in the series a try, to see if you like it. Makes more sense than buying the newest one which is more expensive. It goes for a few quid on Steam every so often, so maybe wait for a sale and read reviews in the meantime to see if it sounds like something you’d enjoy.
