Course charted for Syberia: The World Before

Kate Walker is back! Or at least, she soon will be as Microïds today revealed that a new adventure in Benoît Sokal's popular Syberia series is currently in development, called The World Before.

Story details are sparse, but the new game will invite players to once again "follow the adventures of Kate Walker as she deals with a new investigation." This time around, her journey will lead "across continents and through time periods to experience a journey rooted in the turmoil and tragedies of the twentieth century." Along the way, we can expect a "scenario full of mystery, poetry and emotion. An adventure based on travel and exploration, [and] ingenious mechanisms to unlock." 

No in-game artwork has yet been shared, but The World Before promises more of the "dreamlike, snowy and enigmatic landscapes" that we've come to expect from the series. According to Sokal, fans can expect a "story with an atmosphere that’s just as mysterious as the previous episodes, with even more automatons to operate, puzzles to solve and unusual characters to meet."

We don't yet know when Syberia: The World Before will be complete, but the surprising news is that the game has already been in development for 18 months, and that "further information about the release date, platforms and images from the game will be revealed soon."
