Andy Kelly of PCGamer.com recently was able to play the Syberia 3 first hour of gameplay. It shows Kate Walker escaping some kind of hospital or asylum.
Kate wakes up in a locked room where she finds her very first puzzle in making a call button work. “ The door is locked, and the call button doesn’t seem to be working, which means it’s puzzle time,” the post read, “then I spin it around and reveal instructions on the side about how to repair it. The only problem is the box is sealed. I need something to open it up, I scour the room for the solution, noticing a steaming bowl of stew a knife on the side. I slide the knife into four screws, rotating the analog stick to loosen them, and pop the box open, revealing a loose wire that I reconnect to a power source.”
Kate then finds her way out of the room and into a “large communal area”. She then finds her way into the office of the person in charge of the asylum and demands to be set free where in which she finds herself strapped into a lie detector and after was handed a strange key, yet another puzzle to solve.
As compared to the two previous Syberia games, this one offers a “kind of seamless interaction with the environment [which] is a benefit of the shift to 3D, and there are even rudimentary physics.”
Syberia 3 does follow the story of the first two games of the title, making it a problem to “getting new players on board”. The game did earn a fan base due to the game’s captivating story. Hopefully, Syberia 3 will be like Syberia 2 where a recap of the game’s first story was made for players to cope up.
Microids Syberia 3 releases on April 20 for EU and April 25 for the US. The game is available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
