Revolution Software has announced the sequel to 90s cyberpunk adventure game classic Beneath a Steel Sky, the aptly-titled Beyond a Steel Sky. The Broken Sword developer will also be teaming up with renowned comic book artist Dave Gibbons (Watchmen) once again for the follow-up, so that's good.

Debuted during the reveal of Apple Arcade last night, Beyond a Steel Sky will be coming to PC and consoles, as well as Apple Devices, telling its "thrilling story of loyalty and redemption" set within a terrifying, dystopian world of AI-driven social controls. The game promises Revolution's signature humour, supported by Gibbons' distinctive art style.

"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," said Revolution founder and CEO Charles Cecil, "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."

Promising "intelligent, emergent gameplay" driving an "edgy" narrative in a dynamic, bounded-sandbox world, Beyond a Steel Sky will be coming to consoles, PC, and Apple devices in late 2019. With Broken Sword 5 finding its way to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, hopefully Beyond a Steel Sky will be doing the same. Check out the game in the Apple Arcade reveal trailer below.

Sooo shouldn't they re-release the prequel, Beneath a Steel Sky, on consoles as well? They did it for iPad. I loved this game back in the 90s. Wouldn't mind giving it another go for trophies.
