Revolution Software has just revealed that Beyond a Steel Sky will hit Steam in July. The follow-up to the beloved classic cyberpunk adventure Beneath a Steel Sky will first launch on Apple Arcade tomorrow, so keep your guard up if you don’t want to get spoiled.
The PC version will support both Linux and Windows.
From Charles Cecil, creator of the Broken Sword series, with art direction by Dave Gibbons, legendary comic book artist behind ‘Watchmen’, comes ‘Beyond A Steel Sky’, the long awaited sequel to the cult classic ‘Beneath a Steel Sky’.
You are Robert Foster. A child has been abducted in a brutal attack. You have vowed to bring him home. The trail has led you to Union City, one of the last remaining mega-cities in a world ravaged by shattering wars, and political meltdown.
Union City is a utopia, its people loving life under the control of an altruistic AI: ever-attentive androids, designer living, piazzas and bars. What’s not to love? But this City has a dark underbelly…
‘Beyond a Steel Sky’ is a dramatic, humorous, cyberpunk thriller in which engaging puzzles drive a fast-paced narrative set in a dynamic gameworld that responds to – and is subverted by – the player’s actions.
I am so pleased to have had the opportunity to team up with Dave Gibbons again and take Robert Foster back to Union City after all these years. This is an adventure game that should prove just as welcoming to newcomers as it does those loyal gamers who took on the original 26 years ago. We are particularly thrilled to be leading on Apple Arcade – with the PC version debuting on Steam shortly.Charles Cecil, Founder and CEO of Revolution Software
