Revolution Announce 25th Anniversary Collection
John Williamson / 2 years ago
Without trying to sound overly dramatic, Broken Sword is one of my favourite series of all-time and genuinely increased my appreciation for video games as a work of art. Created by Revolution, Broken Sword follows the adventures of an American tourist, George Stobbart. Along the way, you encounter fiendishly difficult puzzles, hilarious characters and a gorgeous aesthetic. I’ve probably completed the first two titles at least 10 times, and fallen in love with the setting. Although, the goat section did originally require me to contact a premium cheat hotline when the internet was first in its infancy. Even if you’re not overly fond of the point and click genre, it’s well worth checking out and managed to become an integral part of my childhood.
To mark the company’s 25th anniversary, Revolution has just announced a brand new collection including the entire Broken Sword line-up and Beneath a Steel Sky. Here’s a detailed explanation of what the package includes:
“To celebrate over a quarter of a century of creating adventure games, we’re proud to announce the forthcoming release of the Revolution: the 25th Anniversary Collection box set on 11th March 2016, exclusively for PC.
As well as featuring each of Revolution’s full roster of games, the box set will also contain comic books, posters, high quality audio tracks, a Broken Sword USB, a digital timeline with extensive behind- the-scenes materials, and two hours of video telling the Revolution story. The video footage features interviews with key team members and our creative partners such as Dave Gibbons, Rolf Saxon and Barrington Pheloung.
We hope you enjoy the box set as much as we enjoyed putting it together – here’s to another 25 years!”
In terms of pricing, the boxset will cost £29.99 in the UK which is very reasonable given the huge array of extras. Furthermore, it’s great to see a physical collector’s edition for the PC in 2016. Hopefully, Broken Sword continues to be a successful franchise, and more games are produced in the near future.
