Joining up with the tribe, Kate continues her travels to the island of Syberia, while enemies from her past follow hot on her tail. Expect lots of intrigue, mystery and snow ostrich chases as you adventure through the now 3D world of Syberia.
Discussing the return of the Syberia series, vice-president of Microids Elliot Grassiano said that “we are glad to offer to our fans a first overview of the universe imagined by Benoit Sokal and set to music by Inon Zur. This first trailer will transport them in Kate Walker’s new adventure, they will learn more about her fellow companions and the obstacles they are going to face.”
