The release of Syberia: The World Before on console is almost upon us, with the next adventure set in the colourful world of dearly departed auteur creator Benoît Sokal launching on 15th November. We got a new character teaser trailer, giving us some small insight into the motivations of deuteragonist Dana Roze.

Taking place across split timelines, The World Before is simultaneously set in 1937, when pianist Dana's promising career is threatened by the looming spectre of fascism over Europe, and in 2004, where protagonist Kate Walker was imprisoned in the fictional region of Taiga following the events of Syberia 3.

For the super fans out there, Microids is releasing a fancy Collector's Edition of the game, which comes packed with accoutrements like a map, music box, in-universe postcards, an art book, and a whole bunch more.

While certainly not the most popular or prolific franchise on PlayStation by any means, the Syberia series holds a special place in the hearts of adventure game enthusiasts, and it's encouraging to see it moving forwards in an era dominated by service games.
