The first episode of Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse will be available to purchase on the PlayStation Store tomorrow after the weekly Store update. Gamers will be able to pick up the game for €12.99, with a 20% discount for PS Plus members. The game has you playing as American George Stobbart and French journalist Nico Collard as they go on the trail of a stolen painting and a murderous conspiracy.
George and Nico are cast together again when a mysterious painting is stolen during an armed raid on a Paris gallery. From Paris to London and beyond, the trail becomes a race against time as dark forces from Europe’s turbulent past are woken from their slumber. The PS Vita’s front touch screen, rear touch page, analogue sticks and shoulder buttons are all used in this point-and-click adventure game.
Episode 2 will be releasing in Q1 2014, and both episodes can be purchased together (and saving you money) or individually.
