Microids has announced that XS Games has signed a deal to distribute an Xbox version of Syberia. In the game, players assume the role of Kate Walker, a high-powered lawyer who gets involved in a mystery that takes her through a unique, artistically crafted world. Syberia was awarded GameSpot's award for best adventure game in 2002.
"After the PC success Syberia enjoyed both commercially and critically, picking up the Xbox version was a no-brainer," said Steve Grossman, CEO of XS Games. "The pure adventure genre is pretty inexistent on the actual console market and we're convinced there is an audience for this type of game among the Xbox players."
The Xbox version is scheduled for release on July 28 and will have a price of $19.99. Syberia was entirely developed at Microids' studio in Montreal under the direction of Benoît Sokal. For more details, check out our full review of the PC version.
