Broken Sword visited by Angel of Death

THQ gives a name to fourth installment of Revolution Software's graphic adventure series.

by

Back in August, THQ let it slip that a fourth Broken Sword game was on its way for the PC with a planned summer 2006 release. Today the company unveiled the game's proper name, the quite-menacing Broken Sword: The Angel of Death.

The fourth game sees series sleuth George Stobbart fall in love with a mysterious woman, but the happiness is not meant to last. The damsel's disappearance draws George into an international search for a powerful artifact to save the world once again. There is of course a nefarious plot afoot, powerful factions to contend with, and a big secret at the heart of everything. In a potential spoiler, THQ has said that the secret "will ultimately lead George's latest adventure to a painful and bitter conclusion."

For more on the series, check out GameSpot's full review of the third Broken Sword game, 2003's The Sleeping Dragon.

I've only played shadow of the templars in the series so far and I really liked it so I'm planning on getting this game if it's as good or better

Broken Sword 1 & 2 along with the monkey island series and grim f. were the first games i ever played on PC -and the reason i started playing games on PC anyways- and although the game graphics since then have so much improved i can tell you honestly i don't think i have enjoyed any other game like i did those... *sigh* i do hope the series doesn't end here even though the third game below the standards of BS 1&2 especially as far as the puzzles are concerned. I did like the fast reaction puzzles in 3 though, hope there is more!

Broken sword will alwas have a spot in my heart with monkey island, this news of another is exciting as there are no adventure games anymore. Lets hope it uses the physics processor to make it awsome

I wasn't to keen on the Sleeping Dragon, even though I thoroughally enjoyed the first 2 titles. I hope that the Angel of Death brings the series back to it's original roots.

Same situation as Darthpathfinder. Love the series - on par with Lucasarts' point-n-click classics. Will be buying this just to see what happens to George :D

Hopefully this game is more like the first two, the third one felt more like a platform jumper than a puzzle adventure.

I love this series, the last one, while not brilliant it was still pretty good anyway. Its better than all other games of this genre released in the last 5 years IMO.

No mention of Nico! I wonder if she will be in it. Don't like like the sound of "painful and bitter conclusion." Hopefully George and Nico live happily ever after.
