After experiencing a delayed release, the highly anticipated Syberia 3 is available April 20, 2017 for European players, and on April 25, 2017 for North America.

Microids, the publisher of Syberia 3, has released a launch trailer that gives players a taste of the storyline they can expect from the third installment of the series.

Syberia 3 will follow the story of Kate Walker as she accompanies a nomadic tribe, the Youkols, and helps them complete the migration of snow ostriches in the heart of Siberia.

Benoit Sokal, the author and art director of the Syberia saga, has said that “Kate Walker… continues her imaginary wandering like a lost star no longer constrained by its sun.”

Syberia 3 will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC for the time being, with the game also being released on Nintendo Switch later in 2017.

Troy Baker has spoken about his return to the role of Joel in Naughty Dog’s upcoming title The Last of Us Part II.

During an exclusive interview with OnlySP at Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, Baker was asked how he felt to return to the role alongside Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in the sequel to the acclaimed 2013 title.

“The first day we were on set was when we shot [the PSX reveal] trailer,” Baker revealed. “We go through rehearsals and stuff, and we walk through it, and things get real serious all of a sudden, when we heard both of our voices. When you put everything together, that’s when Ashley goes away and Troy goes away, and you’re left with Ellie and Joel.”

Baker noted that the first time creative director Neil Druckmann spoke to him about the potential of a sequel was during the British Academy Video Game Awards in March 2014.

Check out a clip from our exclusive interview with Troy Baker and Nolan North—including the revelation of North’s return as David and the significant musical numbers featured in the game—above, and stay tuned for the full interview.

Druckmann recently revealed that Baker and Johnson had completed their main work on the game, describing it as “the most ambitious cinematic shoot we’ve ever done.” Before that, he stated that the final scene of The Last of Us Part II has been shot, with Laura Bailey recently completing her performance capture for the title. Druckmann also revealed that the rapper Logic and actor Travis Willingham will also be appearing in the game.

Earlier this month, a screen of the game’s weapon upgrade system was leaked in a promotional video, with some noting that weapon variation may be present in the game’s revision of combat.
