The return of King's Quest and Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions headline the list of new, fan-favorite titles planned to launch under the Sierra brand
Activision Publishing today confirmed the revival of Sierra Games, which will focus on indie studios developing innovative, edgy and graphically unique games, including new IPs and contemporary reimaginings of beloved Sierra classics. Headlining Sierra's slate of indie games is an all-new King's Quest experience in 2015, and a new Geometry Wars game planned to launch this holiday season. Additionally, the Sierra team is well underway exploring other indie projects to potentially launch later this year, and in 2015 and beyond.
In the works at The Odd Gentlemen (The Misadventures of PB Winterbottom), King's Quest is a fully reimagined version of the fan-favorite Sierra game fit for both the old and new generation of King’s Quest players. In the new story, King Graham - revered as the greatest adventurer to ever live - shares his life's adventures with his curious granddaughter, Gwendolyn. It is through these tales that Gwendolyn discovers the true greatness of her grandfather.
Developed by Lucid Games, Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is the first title set to launch under Sierra brand. The game will introduce full 3D action and both cooperative and competitive multiplayer for the first time in the franchise. In addition to a full single-player campaign with 50 unique challenges and over 10 battle modes - five of which are brand new to the series - Geometry Wars3: Dimensions features dynamic and persistent progression, offering players a consistently new experience each time they play. Geometry Wars3: Dimensions is planned to launch later this year.
