Sierra have released the first chapter in its new reimagining of one of adventure gaming’s most treasured franchises, King’s Quest. Titled King’s Quest: A Knight to Remember, this debut chapter is now available as a digital download in Europe on Windows PC via Steam, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. It is rated PEGI 12+.
Players may also purchase King’s Quest: The Complete Collection, a bundle containing all five chapters of the new King’s Quest along with an exclusive bonus playable story epilogue on the PlayStation Store, Xbox Games Store and Steam. Alternately, those who buy King’s Quest: A Knight to Remember individually at launch can choose to purchase the King’s Quest Season Pass, securing their access to the remaining four chapters of the game once available, but not the bonus epilogue.
Developed by indie studio The Odd Gentlemen the new King’s Quest rekindles the classic charm and curiosity that has captivated fans of this family-friendly series for over 30 years. As an aging King Graham looks back on a life of heroic adventure with his precocious granddaughter, Gwendolyn, players will be able to experience first-hand the unforgettable puzzles, places and personalities of his greatest untold stories. The first passage in a five-chapter journey, King’s Quest: A Knight to Remember unfolds on Graham’s early days as a bright-eyed teen in Daventry, competing in a contest of wit and valour for a knighthood in King Edward’s royal court.
EF will be bringing you a full review of King’s Quest: A Knight to Remember later this week. The second chapter of King’s Quest is expected to arrive later this year.
