‬Revolution Software has announced that it has reunited with legendary comic book artist Dave Gibbons to create Beyond a Steel Sky – the long-awaited follow-up to classic 90’s dystopian cyberpunk adventure Beneath a Steel Sky.

Beyond a Steel Sky was premiered in the Apple Arcade sneak peak during yesterday’s Apple keynote.

Watch the Introducing Apple Arcade video below:

Set in an eery and terrifying world of AI-driven social controls, it tells a thrilling story of loyalty and redemption. The tale is woven with the studio’s signature humour, supported by Gibbons’ acclaimed artistic style.

Charles Cecil, Founder and CEO of Revolution Software said:

“Even after so many years, fans of the original game are still incredibly loyal and very passionate – and have remained vocal in demanding a sequel. Adventure games are played by a large, diverse audience that hugely enjoys the interweaving of story and puzzles. Our approach has been to write an intelligent, witty adventure game that is wholly intuitive to play and assumes no prior knowledge of the original game or its universe. We aspire to write a modern day 1984 told through the medium of the adventure game”.

Beyond a Steel Sky is a hugely ambitious adventure in which intelligent, humorous emergent gameplay drives an edgy narrative. Very much an adventure, the game is set in a dynamic, bounded-sandbox world. A unique world that will respond to – and be subverted by – the player’s actions. The game characters, driven by advanced AI tech, are willful and motivated: their intelligent responses allow interesting, emergent solutions to puzzles and obstacles. The culmination of Revolution’s 30 years of developing adventure games, Beyond a Steel Sky evolves and redefines the adventure genre.

Beyond a Steel Sky is expected to launch in late 2019. The game is in development for PC, console and Apple devices.
