Revolution Software today announced that Broken Sword: The Director’s Cut will be released on iPhone and iPod touch within a month.
Broken Sword: The Director’s Cut updates the adventure which introduced George Stobbard, Nico Collard and the conspiracy of the Knights Templar in an epic narrative spanning the globe. The Director’s Cut includes a significant amount of new content which adds approximately 20 per cent to the total play time.
The game’s interface has been entirely redesigned for the touchscreen devices and utilises an improved version of the control mechanism premiered in Beneath a Steel Sky – Remastered.
“We were absolutely thrilled with the reaction to our first iPhone and iPod touch release,” said Charles Cecil, managing director, Revolution Software. “Beneath a Steel Sky – Remastered, which was awarded multiple ‘adventure of 2009’ accolades as well as ‘Game of the month’ on many sites, showed us there’s a considerable enthusiasm for updated versions of our classic adventures, and we’re delighted to be following it up so soon with the release of Broken Sword: The Director’s Cut.”
Cecil added: “User feedback from our first release has been incorporated into this game – you can skip the opening cut-scene, for example, which, I must admit, was certainly an oversight in BASS – so we’re confident this will be received even better than BASS-Remastered was last year.”
Broken Sword: The Director’s Cut has also received an updated look and feel, with the introduction of new cut-scenes and animations from Watchmen co-creator and artist Dave Gibbons. A context-sensitive help system has also been introduced, offering a range of in-game hints for those stumped by the game’s puzzles.
