|Syberia 3, the latest chapter of Kate Walker’s journey, begins with Kate adrift and unconscious in a makeshift boat. By good fortune, a caravan of Youkol – who also appeared in Syberia 2 – discovers her before she draws her last breath. Determined to escape their common enemies, Kate decides to help the nomads accomplish their ancestral tradition as they accompany their snow ostriches on their seasonal migration to reproduce in the sacred steppes. A voyage through enchanting and desolated lands begins, one that will see the young woman experience her most dangerous and marvelous adventure yet, with her enemies always on her heels.|
|With cinematic scope, unforgettable characters, and sweeping story, Syberia 3 is the most technically advanced and visually spectacular Syberia game to date.
