Concluding episode hits the Sony handheld

Revolution Software has announced the PlayStation Vita version of Broken Sword 5 – the Serpent’s Curse: Episode Two is out today in Europe, the concluding episode to the two-part adventure.

“We are absolutely delighted by the response of PlayStation Vita gamers to the first episode of The Serpent’s Curse” says Charles Cecil, founder, Revolution Software. “A large number of people had contacted us to ask, or simply just demand, that we bring the game to Vita. Now they can get stuck into the concluding episode or, for those who preferred to wait, to play the adventure in its entirety.”

Episode Two ramps up the level of drama, as well as the difficulty level, as the game progresses: the second part starting with George and Nico having to dodge shotgun fire, with George then meeting his ultimate nemesis – a terrifying goat!
 
The adventure bursts out from Paris and London, taking the player on to stunning locations throughout Spanish Catalonia and to deepest Iraq, the birthplace of civilisation.

Broken Sword 5 – the Serpent’s Curse: Episode Two is available now for PlayStation Vita, priced £9.99 (€12.99) or £15.99 (€19.99) for both episodes – although, for a limited period, there is a special launch discount on the PSN Store.

About Broken Sword 5: the Serpent´s Curse

Paris in the spring. Shots ring out from a gallery…

A robbery… a murder… and the beginning of another epic, original Broken Sword adventure.

From multi-award winning Revolution Software comes the latest explosive episode in this classic series. Playing as intrepid American George Stobbart and sassy French journalist Nico Collard, you find yourself on the trail of a stolen painting – and a murderous conspiracy.  A conspiracy whose roots lie in mysteries older than the written word...

Armed only with logic, integrity and a wry sense of humour - can George and Nico save mankind from disaster?

Can you solve the secret of the Serpent’s Curse? A curse forged by the Devil himself...

Broken Sword 5 - The Serpent’s Curse has re-united key members from the original Broken Sword team, with layout artists from studios such as Disney, Aardman, and Universal who have created sumptuous, classically drawn backgrounds. The rich, lavish HD art, evolves the art-style so loved in the previous Broken Sword games.

Broken Sword is one of the world´s best loved adventure series, having been played by over 10 million players and earned exceptional reviews (including a Metacritic score of 91% for Broken Sword – Director’s Cut – iPhone). Broken Sword 5 – the Serpent’s Curse builds on this rich heritage.
