Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse will be split into a two parts to expedite its launch, the first of which is set to arrive December 4, developer Revolution Software announced.
“The success of our Kickstarter appeal has allowed us to be hugely ambitious—each episode is a full-sized game in its own right,” founder Charles Cecil said in a press statement. “So we will be publishing two action-packed adventures in close succession.”
The first episode launches on PC, Mac, and Linux December 4, with a Vita version to follow later that month. The second episode is scheduled for a January 2014 release. Each individual part of The Serpent’s Curse will cost $14.99. Players can also choose to buy both for $24.99.
