To the delight of fans in the UK (and the lament of those elsewhere), THQ has announced the imminent release of the much-anticipated fourth installment of the Broken Sword series, The Angel of Death.
Ten years after the debut of the original Broken Sword game, Angel of Death once again casts players in the familiar roles of George Stobbart and Nico Collard. This time around, George finds a new love interest in Anna Maria, but his involvement with her soon finds him investigating "dark secrets from a long-forgotten history, uncovering a nefarious plot and an age-old rivalry between the world's most powerful factions, and exposing a secret that they have secretly fought over for millennia."
Angel of Death retains the real-time 3D presentation of the previous game, The Sleeping Dragon, but has returned to its point-and-click roots, in response to overwhelming public feedback. The new game was once again written by Charles Cecil, although it was developed collaboratively between Revolution and Sumo Digital.
Broken Sword: The Angel of Death is officially releasing on September 15th, although some UK online retailers have already begun fulfilling orders for the game.
