Broken Sword – Parzival’s Stone Announced Alongside 4K Remaster Of The Original Game

The Broken Sword Renaissance is upon us

During Xbox’s Gamescom Showcase, adventure game veterans Revolution Software surprised viewers with not only a new entry in its acclaimed series with Broken Sword – Parzival’s Stone, but also a 4K remaster of the original game titled Broken Sword – Shadow of the Templars: Reforged.

Parzival’s Stone is the first entry in the series in a decade, with the small York-based studio working on Beyond a Steel Sky and its Broken Sword mobile offerings since Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse was released in 2013.

This time around our much-loved protagonists, George Stobbart and Nicole Collard, are investigating an ancient manuscript, finding themselves entangled in a conspiracy involving Nazi treasure hunters, brutal medieval histories, and quantum physics. It features what Revolution is calling a ‘Super 2D’ graphic style where hand-drawn backgrounds and 3D geometry are fused together to create its visual look. No release information has been given, but we do know that it is coming to consoles, PC and mobile.

Fans have been calling out for a remaster, or to be able to play the original Broken Sword: the Shadow of the Templars on modern consoles for quite some time now. With the announcement of Broken Sword – Shadow of the Templars: Reforged, fans can have both.

Coming to consoles, PC and mobile in early 2024, Shadow of the Templars: Reforged will let players experience the 1998 point-and-click masterpiece in all its glory in beautiful 4K.

Broken Sword is one of my all-time favourite series, so I’m stoked to be getting a new entry and a remake of, in my humble opinion of course, one of the best games ever.
